Huntington Beach to Renew Bicycle Friendly Status

Stephan Clark of the League of American Bicyclists will be visiting Huntington Beach on Wednesday, January 15.  The City, assisted by HuBBA, will be hosting him with a full day of Bicycle Friendly Community focused discussions and activities.

If you are interested, and can squeeze it into your busy schedule, you are invited to attend a  briefing by Mr. Clark on what it takes to be a bicycle friendly community and hear a summary of his take on HB.  The Briefing and discussions will begin at 4PM, in City Hall, Room B8.

This is an important event because Huntington Beach plans to apply to the League for renewal of its Bicycle Friendly Community award, hopefully at an elevated level. Our current award, at the Bronze level, expires in July 2014.  I anticipate that what Steve shares with us will  have an impact on how we implement our newly approved Bicycle Master Plan and how we approach bicycling improvements in the near future.

This could be a very interesting hour.
