What’s in a Name?



mergerA few months back, you might recall that the leadership of the Providence Bicycle Coalition (PBC) and the Greenways Alliance of Rhode Island (GARI) voted to merge the two organizations.   The merger group has now be identified and should you have any questions or comments about the merger process, please feel free to contact us via email.  Monthly meetings are now underway to determine exactly how to move forward with the merger and I’ll do my best to keep everyone up-to-date with the progress.

At the last meeting, the group voted to name the merged organization The Rhode Island Bicycle Coalition; simple, easy to remember, and to the point.  I bring this up now, as it’s likely we will be referring to this organizational name, almost synonymously with the Providence Bicycle Coalition over the coming months and we don’t want to leave anyone in the dark.
