Interested Advocates,
The 2010 meeting of the KY Bicycling and Bikeways Commission is this Fri. Oct 29th and Saturday Oct 30th at Mammoth Cave National Park.
There will be a full day of activities and discussion Fri followed by a 6 mile ride to Sloan's Pond on the trail the Park installed last year.
Saturday's meetings will be followed by a 25-mile ride around park roads.
The meetings and discussion will be led by Bike Advocates from across the State including our own Keith Lovan (Rails to Trails) and Kenzie Gleason (LFUCG Bike Ped Coordinator) and maybe - it can hoped - the God-father of regional Bike Planning, Don Burrell, Bike/Ped Coordinator for the Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana Regional Planning organization in Cincinnati and former Lexington Bike planner, advocate, organizer, and rider.

Will be a chance to meet our new KY Bike/Ped Coordinator Felicia Harper - a bicycle planner from Louisville recently named to the position.

I am keeping an eye on the weather and plan to camp Fri night at the MC Campgrounds if pleasant enough.

This is another event where you can make your voice calling for more biking (and walking and livability) accommodations heard by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and Metropolitan Planning Orgs from across the state.

Sorry for the late notice but hope you can make plans to attend part of the meeting and maybe ride with other KY biking soldiers.
