12/7 BPAC Meeting Thursday, December 8th, 2011

RBP was present at the Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee meeting last night at the RTC building on Sutro. I think it was a really productive meeting, we were updated on all the projects that were completed by the RTC in the last year to make the Truckee Meadows a better place for bikes. Last year RTC added 51 total miles of bike lanes in the area and next year they plan to strip another 32.7 miles of bike lanes! That’s a really big improvement that all of us can really feel when were on the road. Thanks RTC! Keep up the good work!
