New England Bike-Walk Summit: volunteers needed!



New England Bike-Walk Summit: volunteers needed!

The first-ever New England Bike-Walk Summit will be in Providence on Thursday, October 7. A full day of sessions (and at least one field trip) will address issues important to the full range of bike and walk stakeholders – grassroots advocates, agency employees, professionals in private practice, etc.

Volunteers are needed to do things like manage a/v, staff the registration table, take photos & video, etc. All registered volunteers will have the Summit fee waived and can attend whichever sessions they like, as well as attend the evening reception.

More information can be found at the Summit website and the Summit facebook group. Contact me ( if you’d like to help.

    What? Air all our grievances again and again and state does nothing? I actually took RIDOT's intermodal chief on a bike ride along the Allens Avenue bike lanes to point out their poor condition, and fixed his flat. Appalled, he took cell phone pix, but nothing changed. And this is a state road.

    After listening to all candidates speak I made a short list of those who I'd like to see in office… a very short list: None. What a load of empty rhetoric and self serving bull. Beginning to think that politics is for idiots. Smart people start companies that create exciting opportunities for many people. Government seems determined to tax them out of existence… and shoot themselves in the feet, since they need people gainfully employed to pay taxes and support their follies, like bankrupting the state by spending nearly a billion on 4 miles of highway.

    Btw: Allens Ave bike lanes were recently swept. Some of the cracks were filled with tar, although new ones have since appeared. Wondering what is causing them, certainly not bikes.
