Social for the bike-minded will get you up to speed

There are a lot of people in the Dayton region working to improve bike friendliness in their communities.

If you want to get caught up on what everyone is doing, come to Bike Miami Valley’s Regional Advocacy Social on Wednesday, Sept. 9, at the Fox & Hound at the Fairfield Commons beginning at 7 p.m.

It’s a chance for folks to meet and talk over food and beverages and tell their stories about what they’ve been doing to promote bike friendliness in their communities.

The BMV Regional Advocacy Committee will start with a short presentation and then we’ll go around the room to let anyone who has something to say share what’s happening – or needs to happen – in their community.

Some of the topics the committee will talk about include:

  • We’ve got the Nation’s Largest Paved Trail Network! (and other trail updates)
  • Bike Miami Valley’s new bike rack consultation program
  • New bicycle friendly businesses
  • An overview of Bike Benefits for Members
  • An update on the Link Bike Share update
  • Upcoming events, including the Artemis Ride and volunteer opportunities
  • Chapter updates from Springfield & Piqua
  • What’s happening with new bike groups in Centerville and Kettering.

If you want to learn about the many programs and initiatives going on for people on bikes in the region, this is the place to be.
