Planner's Pub: Advisory Bike Lanes with Michael Williams

Michael Williams is a graduate student in the Civil Engineering Department at PSU, studying transportation with an emphasis on pedestrian and bicycle facilities. 

"Despite being used successfully for decades in Europe, Advisory Bike Lanes are an emerging facility type in North America and can be an effective tool for communities wishing to provide bicycle lanes on streets that are otherwise too narrow to accommodate them. This talk will introduce the concept and operation of advisory bike lanes and look at some lessons learned from the early installations of this facility in the U.S. and Canada."

Michael Williams holds a BS in Computer Engineering, an MS in Electrical Engineering and an MS in Civil Engineering. Michael holds over ten domestic and international patents. He has worked in the biomedical engineering, public works construction and active transportation fields. He concentrates on the planning and design of multimodal transportation facilities. He specializes in advisory bike lanes, protected intersections, and road diets with roundabouts. 

Join LiveMove and Michael Williams in a discussion about advisory bike lanes!

Bicycle/ Race with Dr. Adonia Lugo:

6:00 PM18:00

Bicycle/ Race with Dr. Adonia Lugo:

Join LiveMove and Dr. Adonia Lugo to discuss her upcoming book:
“Bicycle/Race: Transportation, Culture, and Resistance”. 

"Bicycle / Race paints an unforgettable picture of Los Angeles—and the United States—from the perspective of two wheels. This is a book of borderlands and intersections, a cautionary tale about the dangers of putting infrastructure before culture, and a coming-of-age story about power and identity. The colonial history of southern California is interwoven through Adonia Lugo's story of growing up Chicana in Orange County, becoming a bicycle anthropologist, and co-founding Los Angeles's hallmark open streets cycling event, CicLAvia, along the way. When she takes on racism in the world of national bicycle advocacy in Washington, DC, she finds her voice and heads back to LA to organize the movement for environmental justice in active transportation."

There will be a presentation Wednesday May 9th from 6-8pm at Sam Bond’s Foundry.

Additionally, there will be a community ride Thursday May 10th.

Volunteer with Safe Routes to School on National Walk and Roll Day

This is from an email from Safe Routes to School 4J Coordinator, Sarah Mazze:

"We're holding a fun event this year for Walk & Roll to School Day on May 9th for which we'll need a lot of volunteers: the morning buses for several 4J elementary schools will be stopping a short distance from school and dropping participating students off to walk in a massive chaperoned group, or "walking school bus!" We're looking for volunteers to be stationed along the route to help students cross intersections safely, stay on the sidewalk and be mindful of driveways. Some volunteers will walk on the sidewalk with the students. Volunteers will meet between 7:15 and 7:45, depending on the school. Please contact Sarah Mazze at mazze_s@4j.lane.edu to sign up!"

This is a great event nationally and would be awesome if we had a bunch of LiveMovers supporting the children in our community.
