The Arlington Bicycle Advisory Committee's (ABAC) annual winter social is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, at Common Ground, Arlington Center.
This year's event will feature a lively and interactive forum to discuss transportation-related issues among cyclists, pedestrians and motorists sharing both the roadways and multiuse paths, such as the Minuteman Bikeway.
Representatives from LivableStreets Alliance, WalkBoston, Metropolitan Area Planning Council, the local bicycling community and Arlington police plan to participate in ABAC's forum discussion, which will be moderated by Town Manager Adam Chapdelaine.
The public is invited to attend and join the conversation.
Whether it's for a healthier lifestyle, financial savings, environmental sustainability or sheer convenience, more people are walking and bicycling to get around town these days. This progress is sometimes diminished by friction among roadway and path users, especially in a densely populated town like Arlington.
The winter social forum will address common courtesy, community safety and traffic laws.
The event will be held in Common Ground's event room, 319 Broadway. Ask for the bicycling social and the event room when you enter.
A cash bar and light refreshments will be available.
