Do you like to bicycle, skateboard, roller-skate, or walk? Central New York Bicyclists And Pedestrians(CNY-BAP), a proposed grassroots alliance focusing on active transportation in Utica, will hold its first meeting on Sunday, January 22nd from 2-4 pm at The Other Side, 2011 Genesee Street, Utica. (Across from The Uptown Theatre and next to Café Domenico).
The goal of the first meeting is to gauge interest in planning events for Spring, Summer, and Fall, 2012. Topics discussed will be Health & Fitness, Green Living, Neighborhood Safety, and Supporting Local Businesses through bicycle and foot traffic.
Plans for projects and events will also be discussed. Some possible volunteer-driven projects include the Tour d’Utica, themed bike rides and walks to appreciate local scenery, history and venues (such as a coffee tour of Utica!), Bike Parking, working with local craftspeople and artists to create eye-pleasing structures that will boost curb appeal and make it easier and safer to park in front of City venues, and Education and Advocacy, offering community-based, volunteer workshops to educate participants on safe biking and walking procedures, and to educate the public on rules of the road for bikers and walkers.
Bring Your Ideas. CNY-BAP is still in the planning stages and needs your help. Bring your thoughts, ideas, concerns, or just come see what it’s all about!
