DRBC August 2018 Meeting Minutes
Members Present: Dan, Michael, Brian
Meeting called to order at 6:00
The most recent secretaries report: Dan moved to approve Brian seconded. Motion passed.
Protected Bike Lane: Carolyn asked us we wanted to set up the demo protected bike lane during Open Streets. (at the time we won’t sure if she meant setup and /or manning it). Problem is DRBC folks may be busy (for example — Dan will be manning registration, and some of us may be leading rides). We don’t think we will have the people.
Bike racks: The Bus Barn will be getting one, so they don’t need ours. River City Hobbies and King Street Kitchen are two businesses that have expressed interest in getting a rack (or two). We should talk to Robbie (at Coulee Bike Company) to see if he knows of anyone who needs one.
We discussed Bike repair stations and where they are currently located.
Fifth Member: After Bike Fest Dan will give it some thought.
We discussed events. Thinking 5 or 6 a year – mentioned insurance. Talked about how we can work with ORA. With Bike Fest changes could they bring music in the afternoon so people on rides have incentive to stay. Dan mentioned small groups and talking with their leaders. Talked about shorter / less intimidating rides to get folks started.
Meeting adjourned at 6:40 to beat the rain (personal note – I didn’t make it)
