Everyday Cyclist writer John Speare at last night’s Bicycle Master Plan meeting.

Bicycle democracy to be exact. Last night’s Spokane Bicycle Master Plan at the West Central Community Center was successful and well attended. A hundred or so folks got to see maps of proposed bike infrastructure and long network plans. City Planner Ken Pelton and Bicycle Advisory Board members Bob Lutz and John Speare eagerly fielded questions. WSDOT also presented on state bicycle plans and got an earful from Spokane City Council member Richard Rush, who asked for more state support of bike/ped projects. Councilman Steve Corker was also in attendance. If you haven’t crashed the Bicycle Master Plan party yet there’s still time. Read about it here:
