New advocacy group in Savannah, GA
On Monday, April 14 at 11 a.m., a press conference will be held in Downtown Savannah's Johnson Square to announce the launch of the Savannah Bicycle Campaign. The group was organized to work through the political, public policy, and citizen advocacy processes to develop more and better bicycle facilities in Savannah—improved bike lanes, racks, and signage—and to plan and initiate a public campaign to educate bicyclists and drivers about safe practices. More information is available on the Savannah Bicycle Campaign Web site:
In conjunction with the City of Savannah's Earth Day Festival, SBC is sponsoring an Earth Day Ride on Saturday, April 19. The ride leaves from Forsyth Park at 3 p.m. Savannah Mayor Otis Johnson and Chatham County Commission Chairman Pete Liakakis are leading the ride. More info here:
