notable projects and programs which we can use as models, and 1 day on

As always, CM meets near Charles and Redwood streets. We start to gather at 5:30 p.m. We typically start a little after 6:00 p.m.
btw, Beth W. has made a pretty kick-ass flyer. Interested parties should contact her to get copies of it to spread around town.

extremely varied group of people strung together to impress our city
representatives as to the support bicycle issues have.
nyone interested in giving a \"testimonial\" is welcome to do so.
I haven\'t made the necessary appointments with the city yet, but that is
usually not as hard or time consuming as gathering statements.
All are welcome to express intelligible, truthful, and sincere opinions on
