Meeting Tonight: Help Get More Bike Parking for SoHo

Bicycling advocates: On the agenda of this evening’s Manhattan Community Board 2 transportation committee meeting is a plan to expand bike parking in SoHo. It would be very helpful to have a handful of people who live, work and visit SoHo on hand to make sure the committee knows how important parking is for bicyclists. Here are the details:

Tuesday, September 11, 6:30 pm
LGBT
Community Services Center
208 W. 13th St. bet. 7th & Greenwich
Aves.

The bike parking issue is the last item on the agenda so it is probably safe to show up around 7:30 or 8:00 pm.
