Many thanks to East Bay Bike Coalition and Piedmont CONNECT for making this happen. Those interested in improving bike use in Piedmont should stay tuned - the city is beginning to develop a Bike Master Plan for Piedmont and we'll need input from residents. Attend the CONNECT meeting this Wednesday May 16 at Havens School to learn more.
