WA Bikes to Merge with Cascade Bicycle Club!

The boards of these two organizations are seeking input from cyclists regarding the proposed merger. Please read the message from WA Bikes and give your response. Yes, even if you live in Idaho!

Master Bicycle Plan

The Bicycle Master Plan started it's 30 day public comment period today. The plan documents can be found at the following location along with instructions for submitting comments. You must submit comments no later than 26 MAY 2015. The entire bicycling community is encouraged to read through the plan and submit comments. This Plan will define the path forward for the next several years with regard to bicycle development in the LC Valley. 

, Asotin, Washington, 99402.



LCBA’s appreciation for communication and teamwork is their strongest asset at the beginning of what will, hopefully, be a long presence in the area. Their membership currently accounts for around 40 people, but expects to attract cross-sectional representation across demographics as they present what they can offer to the community based on multiple survey responses collected from the public. With regular meetings on the third Thursday of every month, the organization looks to be well on its way to making positive change for residents and visitors alike.--Bicycle Paper


Next Meeting


Thursday, Nov., 19th 5:30 pm
Bell building 215 D Street  Conference Room upstairs.

Where the Sidewalk Ends . . 

   


 Shel Silverstein discovered a world of fantasy and magic. Too often Lewis Clark Valley pedestrians and cyclists just find gravel, a pothole or two, and a feeling that you . . . 

. . . just can't get there from here.

If you would like to restore the magic, or even just extend the sidewalk, come join us.

  • WAbikes letter to bike clubs and partners

    Cascade Bicycle Club and Washington Bikes have merged to form a more coherent and unified mission. How will that impact bicyclists on the east side of Washignton State, North Eastern Idaho? That will depend upon how active we become. This letter represents an explicit request to participate in setting up how WAbikes can provide support at the local level. And no, I don't think it matters that most of our rides are actually in Idaho. We can help shape this discussion.

    ==========================================================


    December 19, 2015

     

    Dear local clubs and partners –

     

    On Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015, the Washington Bikes Board of Directors voted to merge with Cascade Bicycle Club. We are proud to join forces to become the nation’s largest statewide bicycle nonprofit and are confident the merger will result in greater capacity to work with you in the future. Engagement with local clubs and advocacy groups will continue to be a priority of the merged organization.

     

    We believe this merger will allow our mission to thrive and grow for several reasons.

     

    • Two incredible and very dedicated leaders of Washington Bikes, Barb Chamberlain and Blake Trask, will join Cascade as staff to lead policy, advocacy, communications, and strategic partnerships for both Washington Bikes and Cascade Bicycle Club.

    • The Washington Bikes Board voted to approve the 2016 legislative agenda, previously reviewed with the Legislative and Statewide Issues Committee. Blake will continue to engage the committee in implementing this agenda and will work with all the strategic partners who have helped make us successful in Olympia. (Watch for a blog post coming soon that you can share with your members.)

    • Barb will lead the planning of the 2016 Bike Summit, which will include sessions and activities focused on collaboration and partnership with local clubs, along with statewide outreach and development of our work in bike travel/tourism. Save the date and plan to attend: March 21-22 at the Tacoma Convention Center. Registration will open early in 2016.

    • Current Washington Bikes Board members will participate in the development of a new strategic plan for the organization in March-April 2016. This plan will articulate how Cascade Bicycle Club/Washington Bikes will support local policy and advocacy, local clubs and advocacy groups, your rides and events, and outreach and education. You and other stakeholders will be invited to participate through meetings and other engagement opportunities. Please continue to be a part of shaping our collective future.

    • Three current members of the Washington Bikes board of directors—John Pope (Anacortes), Ted Inkley (Seattle), and Marie Dymkoski (Pullman)will join the board of the merged organization for a one-year appointment effective January 1, 2016. These members bring to the board a commitment to statewide work, a historical perspective on our mission, and geographic diversity.

     

    We know the merger is a big step for the organization—one we are confident qllows for growth of bicycling statewide.When you look at the values and principles adopted by both boards to guide the negotiations (linked in the merger update post 11/13/15 and reaffirmed in the final board resolutions), you’ll recognize values and principles you helped us form as we grew over the years: partnership, collaboration, inclusion, and representation of all kinds of riders.

     

    We hope you will continue to engage with and support our mission in 2016 and beyond.

     

    Sincerely.

     

    Washington Bikes Board of Directors

  • Comment on LTIP by Dec. 7



    Transportation infrastructure turns out to be expensive. Duh! Lots of projects that need to be done, but the dollars aren't there to do them all. Where to start? How about with an itemized list which can be prioritized? Good idea. Now who should set the priorities? The engineers, the city councilors? How about the road users?

    That's right. The annual open comment period for the Lewiston Transportation Plan is here. You will find bicycling issues highlighted so that you can easilly find them. Might be a good idea to cross-reference these with the Master Bicycle Plan and point out the double weighting.

    Send your comments to:

    Written comments are encouraged and may be mailed to Public Works, P O Box 617, Lewiston, ID 83501 or emailed to publicworks@cityoflewiston.org no later than 12:00 p.m. on December 7, 2015. Comments may also be provided at the Public Hearing before City Council on December 14, 2015, typically at 6:00 p.m. in the auditorium at the Lewis-Clark State College (LCSC) Library Building, 508 8th Avenue, Lewiston, ID. Please visit the City’s website calendar for an agenda with the exact meeting time and location (www.cityoflewiston.org).
