(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA / May 25, 2016) – Despite getting caught in a brief rainstorm, Vice Mayor Pat Darlington enjoyed a tandem bicycle tour of Stillwater this past Monday with Bicyclist and Pedestrian Ad Hoc Committee member Keith Reed to get a sense of what it’s like to get around town on a bike.
These trips are some of the fun experiences BPAC members participate in. BPAC is an ad hoc citizen committee with open membership that focuses on the different modes of travel in Stillwater and brainstorms ways to advance travel opportunities for bicyclists, pedestrians and differently abled citizens in the community.
“We welcome all residents interested in these topics to participate in our meetings and join in the discussion,” Interim Transportation and Stormwater Services Director Sharla Lovern said.
The committee will next hold a bus tour of the Kameoka Trail Wednesday, May 25 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
All residents interested in participating are encouraged to arrive about 5:15 p.m. The bus will meet attendees on Scott Street north of the Oklahoma State University Multimodal Transportation Terminal.
The first level of the OSU parking garage on Hall of Fame and Monroe Street will be open for free parking to attendees. The bus is ADA accessible.
BPAC will meet again Thursday, June 2 from 5:45 – 7:15 p.m. at the City of Stillwater Community Center, 315 W. 8th Ave., to discuss bicycle safety tips from the League of American Bicyclists and plan future educational events. All are welcome to attend.
