PACE needs walkers

Pedestrian Advocates of the Coastal Empire will conduct a crosswalk action tomorrow (March 7) at 11:30 a.m. at the intersection of Bay and Jefferson streets. The group invites members of the community to participate. What’s a crosswalk action?

A crosswalk action is an organized event in which a group of pedestrians repeatedly crosses a street in marked and/or unmarked crosswalks in a legal fashion, so as to communicate messages to drivers, pedestrians, media representatives and other observers. Members of the organized group carry signs with educational and advocacy messages.

In case of rain this event will be canceled. For more information, call Alison at 691-7445.

Savannah Bicycle Campaign launches Web site

As I write this, the newly organized Savannah Bicycle Campaign is holding its second meeting. I’m sorry I can’t be there. Here’s what the SBC hopes to achieve:

Our objectives are to work through the political process to develop more and better bicycle facilities for Savannah—improved bike lanes, racks, and signage—and to develop a public campaign to educate bicyclists and drivers about safe practices on and off the roadways. Ultimately, we hope to foster an inclusive approach to make our communities more livable, connected, and safe.

The Savannah Bicycle Campaign welcomes members from all sectors of the cycling community. Recreational, transportational and competitive cyclists are all invited to get involved. If you ride for environmental, economic or health reasons — or just for the fun of it — the door’s open. Find out how to get involved here.
