October Downtown Bikeways Updae

Thank you to Jess for taking the notes for this blog and to Andrew for serving as photographer.
The Downtown Bikeways group met until after dark for the first time this year - the seasons are changing! And we are still going strong! We started our meeting by sharing our first joyful bike memory.

We spent most of the meeting in our workgroups collaborating, accomplishing tasks, and identifying the work that we will complete over the next month.

What's up next?
