Will the Bike Safety Cmte get its charter renewed? It will be interesting to follow this story. Meanwhile there are a lot of good things happening bike-wise: Huntington Beach is reviewing the 1st Draft of their Bicycle Master Plan and Newport Beach staff is busy drafting an RFP as we commence our own Master Plan. Also noteworthy: the City has extended the 3:1 match for the Bicycle Safety Improvement Fund which has already raised close to $80,000 – how much is that after the 3:1 match? A lot. And maybe lastly, I'm observing first hand and hearing from several others, too – the Sharrows on Coast Hwy thru CdM are having the desired affect: motorists are driving more cordially, there's less confrontation between bike and car. (Can't resist: "Told you it would!") I tell my friends: we are entering the Golden Age of Bicycle Advocacy, and Newport Beach is a leader.

Cyclists still running red lights and stop signs. That's progress.
