good idea Rob. I already commited to a team a couple of weeks ago otherwise I'd love to do it.

Is anybody participating in the everybody bikes event this May? I would like to join a team--or start one. We talk the talk, now it's time to bike the walk.

If you are a bike commuter, let's form a Transition Whatcom team--or two-as a way to draw attention to the activity of bike commuting and also the Transition movement!

Wednesday, April 28th
6:30pm
RE Sources' Sustainable Living Center, 2309 Meridian Street, Bellingham
Free

The results are in! As a community, we're making more of our trips by walking, bicycling and riding the bus. Join Whatcom Smart Trips for a presentation followed by small group discussions of survey data showing changes in Bellingham residents' travel habits from 2004 to 2009.

Survey data will be presented by Werner Brög, Managing Director of Socialdata (the firm that completed the survey research) and an international expert in travel behavior. The data shows remarkable differences in the trips of Bellingham residents-depending on which side of the freeway they live on. Following the presentation will be a brainstorming session: how can we help residents overcome obstacles to making more Smart Trips?

This event is co-sponsored by RE Sources.

I can go that evening, I have commented at a city council meeting but not a county one, if anybody has some tips or advice on doing this let me know, like do you have to provide anything ahead of time etc.. let me know directly if you don't want to clog up the wall

It would be a good idea for at least some of this group to show up for that. I see drivers being ignorant or driving dangerously around bikes too often.
