Bike Law and Bike Plan Meetings Tuesday

It's been a couple of years since Ray Thomas was last in town for a legal clinic.

Tuesday night he will be at the Salem Bicycle Club's general meeting. It will be in the Carrier Room at the First United Methodist Church on the corner of State and Church Streets. Social half-hour begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by the meeting at 7:00 p.m.

The talk will be a great refresher on bikes and the law. And if you haven't been to a bike club meeting and would like to learn more about the club, it would be an excellent and especially useful introduction!

You can also download a free copy of Pedal Power, a Legal Guide for Oregon Cyclists. It's over 150 pages of useful analysis and discussion of the law and the way it relates to bicycling.

Tuesday night will also bring the final Stakeholder Advisory Committee meeting for the bike plan update. They'll be discussing the penultimate draft of the plan, and laying out the path for adoption, including a joint session of the Planning Commission and City Council Meeting on Monday, October 24th, 5:30 PM, in the Anderson Room at the Salem Library.

The Tuesday meeting (agenda here) will be at 6:30 in Pringle Hall, 606 Church Street SE.
