An impromtu bike tour: more Downtown Phoenix murals & the Bicycle Initiative Subcommittee meeting

Bob asked me to do a little office party Christmas shopping for him today, to which I happily agreed as it would give me a chance to visit a few places on Roosevelt Row that I've been curious about.  As it happened several murals were also nearby so I decided to take a few extra minutes to pedal around and capture them for your viewing pleasure.

I'll just add that when you're in a car it's much harder to just stop and admire them, what with having to hunt around for a place to park and all. 

As you can see traveling by bike allows the view a more up-close and personal art experience. 

Maybe I'll get the chance to mention that tomorrow afternoon when I attend the City of Phoenix's Bicycle Initiative Subcommittee meeting.  It's open to the public so if you are a Valley resident and would like to let your representatives (both elected and appointed) know that you think bike lanes, multi-use paths, bike corrals and other helpful bike infrastructure are worthwhile use of funds, please come on down. 

The meeting (rescheduled from November) is from 4:30 - 6 p.m. at Phoenix City Hall, 200 W. Washington St., downtown Phoenix.  The purpose of the meeting is to get Valley residents on bikes "by making biking safer, easier and more comfortable."  Sounds like a great idea to me.

Hope to see you at City Hall tomorrow night!
