Hello everyone, it's been a few months since we've emailed you and we hope you're all doing well and enjoying the new year. January 25th saw our first board meeting of 2009 which lasted a whopping 3 hours! We discussed quite a bit and we're looking forward to a great 2009! Before we get to Events we're happy to announce that TBAG has renewed its membership with the League of American Bicyclists, has become a member of the Thunderhead Alliance for Biking & Walking, is in the process of becoming a member of the Coalition of Arizona Bicyclists and has also entered into a Joint Partnership Agreement with Maricopa Assoc. of Govt.s (MAG) and Regional Public Transportation Authority (RPTA) which will, among other things, allow us bulk purchasing power of safety equipment such as helmets and advocacy materials.
On to Events, here's a quick rundown of what's in store (so far) for the first half of 2009:
As always, please stay tuned to the blog for updates as we're certain other events will pop up here and there. The blog will soon have a new events and rides calendar. We also plan to send a monthly newsletter around the 1st of each month to keep you up to date on TBAG happenings. If you haven't done so, please remember to visit the Forums and if you're on Twitter, follow us for daily musing about bicycles, blog post notifications, last minute events and both local and global bicycle related news!
