South Orange Maplewood Bicycle Coalition to host local area summit next week
The NJ Bike and Walk Coalition is reporting that The South Orange Maplewood Bicycle Coalition (SOMbike) is hosting a Bike Summit to be held at the Baird Center, 5 Mead Street, South Orange, on Tuesday, January 18, at 7:30 pm. Representatives from bike groups in Jersey City, Newark, and Montclair, as well as South Orange and Maplewood have committed to coming together to discuss successful efforts to advocate for bike-friendly policies in their towns. Maintenance of an on-line joint calendar of events and a library of policy documents will be discussed, as well as planning rides as a large coalition. Representatives from bike groups in other towns are welcome to attend.
Unfortunately I will not be able to represent WalkBikeJersey due to a prior commitment but it is likely that SOMbike will have a rundown of the summit on their great Website/Blog.
