Bike the Strike Day One
Late this morning, the Bicycle Coalition set up a bike corral and service station up at Dilworth Plaza (NW Corner of City Hall). The bike corral is not a valet bike station, so you do have to bring your own lock (although we will be nearby). Around 12:30, Mayor Nutter made a surprise appearance.
The Bicycle Coalition will be providing information and advice every day at the service station from 8AM to 6PM during the entire duration of the strike.
Simultaneously we will be conducting bike counts at select locations from 7:30 to 9:00 AM and from 4:30 t0 6:00 PM to document how the strike is impacting bike riding.
All of this is a huge drain on our staff and therefore we are looking for volunteers to give us a hand, if you can donate any time to help man the service station or count bikes please contact Max Rosen-Long via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the media which has been visiting us from time to time, Mayor Nutter stopped by to offer of his support and appreciation. We urge you to stop by.
An additional unmanned bike parking corral is located across the street at the Municipal Services Building.
