UCSC Bike Plan is up for review next Friday (11/7/2006)

Hi Folks,

There will be a public review of the UCSC bike plan next Friday November 17th from 4-6 pm. Details are at the end of this message. I’m planning to attend.

This is a great plan since UCSC has made provisions for LEGAL off road single track trails in Section 2.

If you haven’t done so already, please make comments on the plan to UCSCbikeplan at ppc.ucsc.edu.

Some talking points:

* Express your support for the provision of recreational off-road bicycling in the current plan.

* Willingness to help with trail design, construction and maintenance of the trails.

* Willingness to serve on the Campus Bicycle Committee (CBC) to oversee bicycling issues.

This recreational trails part of the plan is a great concession to the mountain biking community. I hope we can work together to make it work.

Thanks for your support,
