I'm a 4- or 5-times a week commuter who lives in Durham, so you know I was happy to hear this.

The Durham NC Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC) is developing a comprehensive bicycle plan for the city and county of Durham. They've hired a consultant and will hold a series of open house public workshops.

To help start the discussion, they've posted a poll asking questions about cyclists and their cycling habits/wants/needs in and around Durham.

You can visit the poll, as well as get more information about the workshops and such, at http://www.bikewalkdurham.org.

Any of you from the area, please do your bit by completing the poll and then spreading the word to any other cyclists you know.
