*FCC FACEBOOK WEEKLY WRAP-UP* *(An anti-social media compendium for our non-Facebook members)*
*EQUINOX CLEAN UP RIDE REPORT*Six people – Greg, Steve, Dave, Hank, Tom, and Eric – came out to help with the post Equinox Marathon Clean Up Ride on Sunday. They got to get out for a ride on a gorgeous day and help out a tremendous community event.
We broke the route up into segments and collected signs, sometimes working solo, sometimes in pairs. Greg, Steve, and Eric transported signs using the “peacock method,” popularized by Greg last year. The method requires a rear rack and a bungee or two. It works best if the “tail” remains relatively closed rather than fanning out. And so, no women were wooed, which was probably for the best.
Put the post Equinox ride on your calendar for next year. It’s a great way to get it a fun ride, help a community event, and earn a bit for the club (the Equinox donates something to FCC for the effort).
*DENALI PARK WORKAROUND*The Denali Park Road may be closed to automobiles past the Pretty Rocks landslide, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get around it on bike. Check out this blog post from Jay Cable!
*AK LONG-RANGE PLAN SEEKING COMMENT*The Alaska Draft Long-Range Transportation Plan and Freight Plan is ready for public comment and review. This is a good time for cycling advocates to speak up so that cycling is viewed as an equal form of transportation.
View Virtual Public Meeting #3 to learn about the draft plans’ goals and actions and how they will guide transportation in Alaska for the next 25 years: arcg.is/15vmm2
Then submit comments about the draft plans by October 31. The project team will review the comments and develop final plans, which will be made available following approval.
