Next Friday, July 8th, is the dedication of the Two Rivers Park Bridge. The dedication happens at 11:30 and will be attended by United State Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood. It is uncertain that we will be able to ride across the bridge, they are recommending "Casual/Comfortable flat shoes." BACA is recommending that people carpool because parking would be at a premium.
So here's my idea:
Meet at the parking lot at Cajun's at 10:30 am for a group ride to the bridge to show our support to the city, local media and the Secretary of Transportation for bike friendly routes and the use of Federal Transportation dollars to construct them.
The ride would be very casual (hence the hour long time frame) all bike styles (road bikes, mountain bikes, cruisers, etc.) would be welcome. I only ask that to ride with the group you wear a helmet. It would also be cool if someone wanted to form a similar group to come from the North Little Rock side or maybe even a group coming from West Little Rock down River Mountain Road to all converge at the base of the bridge at the same time. I figure everyone makes their own way back.
Although the flyer below has an RSVP number, I just talked with Judge Villines office and was told that would be unecessary.
Let me know if you have questions, more information below...
