March 4th - Arlington Bicycling Winter Social: 

Sharing our roads and pathways more respectfully

Join the Arlington Bicycle Advisory Committee (ABAC) for their annual indoor Winter Bicycling Social get-together on Wednesday, March 4, 7:00-9:00 p.m., at the Common Ground Bar & Grill in Arlington Center.

 This year's ABAC Winter Social will feature a lively and interactive forum to discuss transportation-related issues among cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists sharing both the roadways and multi-use paths like the Minuteman Bikeway.  Whether it's for a healthier lifestyle, financial savings, environmental sustainability, or sheer convenience, more and more people are walking and bicycling to get around town these days.  This progress, however, is sometimes diminished by friction among roadway and path users, especially in a densely populated town like Arlington. ABAC’s Winter Social forum will address common courtesy, community safety, and traffic laws.

Representatives from LivableStreets Alliance, WalkBoston, Metropolitan Area Planning Council, the local bicycling community, and the Arlington Police Department plan to participate in ABAC's forum discussion, which will be moderated by Arlington Town Manager Adam Chapdelaine. You are invited to attend and join the conversation.

 ABAC's Winter Social will be held in the Common Ground Bar & Grill's Event Room, 319 Broadway, in Arlington Center. Ask for the Bicycling Social and the Event Room when you enter on Wednesday evening, March 4.  A cash bar and light refreshments will be available.  ABAC's website is available at www.abac.arlington.ma.us.
