A few newsy items

Now that the weather appears to be warming up slowly and cycling season is about to begin, it's time for some news items:

1. There is a meeting of the Steering Committee (actually anyone interested in getting involved) for the Cycling Coalition. This meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 1st @ 6:30 in the Board Room of the Parksville City Hall. At this meeting we hope to plan for the first general public meeting of the Coalition in about 4 - 6 weeks plus plan activities for the first few months of this year. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to me - Jim Swanson via e-mail at

2.There are Cycling Coalitions that are also being formed in Campbell River and the Cowichan Valley. So, it appears that the entire East side of the Island will be represented by affiliates of the BC Cycling Coalition.
