Huntsville, Alabama's mayor sent his staff to Louisville for the cycling conference. Lots more "Share the Road" signs going up around town; more things to follow.

I got that email as well, though I didn't go to a meeting. The closest one was in Smyrna which I didn't have time to ride to on a weeknight. I took the online survey, though.

right now the survey is enough. the meeting explained the whys and whats but the end results come from the input from the survey.
