Dot Bike Summer Meeting, Jul. 27

Celebrate warm, "bikey" weather with an enjoyable evening of bike talk and mingling! DotBike will hold their Summer Meeting on Wednesday, July 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. There's a number of hot topics for updates, and of course the more informal chatting the better. DotBike has been involved in various projects and is excited to share updates and discuss. Additionally, the group needs your help with some important tasks. If you've never been to a Dot Bike event before, all the more reason to come and learn! Refreshments will be provided.

Please RSVP for the event on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=209258019122485) or the DotBike website (http://dotbike.org/events/dot-bike-summer-meeting). Contact Sally Sharrow for details (513.652.2490; sally.sharrow@gmail.com). Continue on for meeting agenda after the break.

Agenda:
New improved outreach kit - DotBike has been working on a great set of posters and flyers to make it easy to both set up and have key information on-hand for "tabling" at events. Take a look at materials, suggest/provide additional resources, and talk about where DotBike can set up in order to meet more Dorchester bikers and those interested in biking, as well as provide outreach about bike routes, safety, etc.

Dot Ave update - Where are those lanes and sharrows?

Fold-a-map! Did you know that the Boston Bike Map information is available En Español? Em Português? In Vietnamese? Dot Bike has joined other neighborhood bike advocates and community volunteers to get the very useful Bike Map text translated. Help us fold and clip the translations for distribution. Do you have suggestions on where to distribute particular translations? Can you help with additional translations, especially Haitian Creole? DotBike would especially love to see or hear from you!

Neighborhoods on two wheels: Our next door neighbor bike groups, JP Bikes, Rozzie Bikes, Allston-Brighton Bikes, and other similar groups are involved in all manner of interesting events and advocacy. Hear some highlights about what these groups are up to and how we adapt, or heck, steal their great ideas, and continue to collaborate with them. Is there a project you've been itching to work on or a biking issue you think needs to be addressed? This is your forum for discussion. And, help plan for upcoming events -neighborhood rides, Moving Planet, and more.
