Metro Bicycle Roundtable

Metro is convening a series of Bicycle Roundtable meetings in
2010, and we welcome your participation! Doug Failing, Metro’s Executive
Director of Highway Programs and Interim Chief Planning Officer, was active in
the Caltrans Bicycle Advisory Committee. He will kick-off the first Metro
Bicycle Roundtable meeting.

The purpose of the first meeting is to initiate a dialogue
and identify issues of importance to cyclists in Los Angeles County.
This will lead to a vision for enhancing Metro’s current program. The
outcome of the first meeting will determine the frequency, next steps, and
agendas of future meetings.

The first Metro Bicycle Roundtable meeting
is scheduled for:
