On Thursday, January 18 VELO Bloomfield presented and sponsored the inaugural Essex People for Bikes DRAFT! People, Bikes, and Beer at Montclair’s Tierney Tavern in collaboration with Bike Walk Montclair with great entertainment from Palmarosa.
Guests Clarence Eckerson of Streetfilms and Gary Toth of Project for People for Public Spaces and moderator Debra Kagan of Bike & Walk Montclair did a great job discussing what Complete Streets can look like and mapping out the paths to get us there.
It was networking, a panel, a band, and beer with bicycles and complete streets as the focus.
We had over 65 people!
For those who came and helped to promote –thank you.
