From VT Bike/Ped
The VBPC's 3rd Annual Bike/Ped Forum brought together enthusiasts from a variety of sectors including bike shops, advocacy groups, bike clubs, state government, chambers of commerce, and regional planning commissions. In the photo above, participants listen as Deputy Secretary of Transportation, Sue Minter, describes the impacts of Tropical Storm Irene on Vermont's infrastructure. The Forum, through six breakout sessions, provided an important opportunity for individuals with a stake in bike/ped issues to meet one another and explore ways to work together. The Coalition is grateful to the 2011 major sponsors, the Department of Tourism and Marketing, Bike Vermont, Onion River Sports, and the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce, who made it possible for the Forum to expand to include so many additional voices. Please mark your calendar now for the 2012 Forum which will be held on Wednesday, October 24 and lend your voice to these important discussions. Thank you.
