Bike friendly

Posted By on Mon, Mar 17, 2008 at 8:38 AM

Bicycle Advocacy of Central Arkansas ">has begun an awards program to recognize people and agencies that encourage biking and environmentally friendly practices. Central Arkansas Transit, for example, has been honored for installing bike racks on all its buses. The Department of Environmental Quality has been cited for encouraging bike use through bike racks, loaner bikes and showers and changing areas.

If the subject interests you, you might join BACA for a meeting at 7 p.m. April 3 at the Oyster Bar. The group will pay tribute to the people who led the fight to stop the extension of Rebsamen Park Road to Interstate 430 in 1991 and lawyers who participated in that fight will provide some behind-the-scenes insight on the successful battle, which was critical to the further development of the River Trail for bikes and pedestrians.

The issue is worth remembering 17 years later because there are still forces that would like to extend Rebsamen. Eternal vigilance and all.
