(Jason Roberts, Andy Clark – president of the League of American Bicyclists, Gail Spann – LAB Texas rep, Elizabeth Kiker – vp of LAB, and Amy Cowan)
The president and vice president of the League of American Bicyclists were in town from Washington D.C. to show support for the Dallas Bike Plan and stopped by Oak Cliff the following morning to talk with BFOC about the Better Block project, bicycle advocacy in Oak Cliff and Dallas, and more. Clark discussed the ongoing efforts of the LAB and how Dallas and other southern cities can help further bicycle initiatives. The two efforts that he felt were most inspirational nationally were the growing Ciclovia movement, and the Better Block projects. After meeting, the group toured the Bishop Arts District and stopped in at the Oak Cliff Bicycle Company to meet with local shop owner Ean Parsons.
