BACA- Updated

I'll be at the Bicycle Advocacy of Central Arkansas meeting tonight at 7:00 at the Oyster Bar and will try to have a report up later. Mayor Stodola is going to talk about how the sales tax plan will benefit trails in LR. Stay tuned.

Update: A packed house provided a friendly ear to the Mayor as he again touted the reasons to pass the sales taxes. Nothing new there. Ed Levy from the Bike Friendly Community Committee also spoke though about bike-friendly things in the works like: a few bike stations for LR, the trails from the Heights down to the River Trail, closing the loop (apparently there's a video showing the cantilevered cliff-hugging bridge around Dillard's that will be released soon), some organized rides in the works to build excitement about bikes, and so on and so forth.

The Clinton bridge is set to open at 11:00 on Friday, Sept 30. The big dog himself will be here to lead the dedication, and there's talk of a celebrity musician making an appearance too.

  1. Ed Levy is a goofball who is on record (in the DemGaz) saying that "bike lanes are scary". This is who is in chair of the Little Rock Bike Friendly Community Committee? Jeeze... don't look for things to improve while he's in charge. He's a stooge for the mayor who isn't about to rock any boats.
