Support the Saint Paul Bike Plan

Saint Paul released its draft Bike Plan. If you haven't already done so, you can download and read it at-- http://www.stpaul.gov/bikeplan

The heart of the plan is the "Figures and Maps" PDF but there are important descriptions in the text of the plan, particularly the last 10 or 15 pages. The city's Bike Planner, Reuben Collins wants your comments on the plan-- both suggested changes and which new routes you would prioritize for implementation. You can e-mail your comments to him. His e-mail is on the Bike Plan page, and you should CC those comments to your city council member. You can also post remarks on the Open Saint Paul forum, linked to on the Bike Plan page. We are also asking cyclists to attend presentations of the plan in their local districts. These are listed on the plan page but include:

March 10, 7pm, Como (District 10) Council at Historic Como Park Streetcar Station;

March 11, 7pm, Highland (District 15) Transportation Committee, Hillcrest Recreation Center, 1978 Ford Parkway;

March 17, Dayton's Bluff (District 4), time and location TBD;
