|This is our Transportation Planner Eve at
last year’s Summer Parkway event. We
thought Winter Parkways was a more
accurate name due to the cold weather.
It may only be Thursday but, due to a busy schedule, I’ve already got next week all planned out! So, if you
want to keep up with what we’re doing, you’ll come to the Bicycle Advisory Board meeting at 6 p.m. at Spokane City Hall on Tuesday, June 17, then the Spokane Summer Parkways event on Wednesday, June 18.
We’ll be talking to folks at both venues about the new Bike Map that we’re just now putting the finishing touches on. Want to check it out? You gotta wait until our grand unveiling next week, it’s not quite ready. If you come to the Advisory Board meeting, I’ll be showing the group how the interactive map works and where it can be found online.
The following night, our GIS guy who helped build the map, Kevin, and one of our Transportation Planners, Ryan, will be at Spokane Summer Parkways, also showing people how the map works, where they can find it, but also giving out paper copies that Spokane County’s Commute Trip Reduction Program had made.
There are a lot of other reasons to come out and play though at Spokane Summer Parkways though besides getting your copy of the map. There will be lots of things going on, tons of fun activities, vendors and how often do you get to ride, walk, skateboard, etc. on roads that are completely free of traffic? This year’s even is in the Comstock/Manito neighborhood from 6-9 p.m. More info and a route map can be found here.
