Cecily will have portable CATA rack at Lion Bash to teach folks how to use it
Bicycle Education & Enforcement “BEEP” Because university they can lower fine cost and also go to online bike ed course and get fee waived first time.
“Limited Bike Zone” on campus because you can’t ride on sidewalk unless you yield to pedestrians. Bike lanes on Garner St etc history is there wasn’t room on both sides of road, they are called “climb lanes”

October 3 is next Bike Safety 101 and Paul can’t do this one, so Brian is doing it.

How many locations? Was discussed. HUB, IST/West Gate, Allen Gates didn’t have much so top of Shortlidge was suggested, Sunset Park was suggested.
Paul asked about light coupons for that night and Jean suggested membership forms to give out w/ lights
Matt said they are working on Cranksgiving (scavenger hunt/food drive/race all in one) and it will benefit Youth Service Bureau rather than Food Bank because the latter doesn’t need it.
