They are expecting over 400! People to attend so if you want to be there, get there early!  Hopefully someone will video tape it and put it on youtube when its over for those of us who can’t make it.

SHOW UP!  Make sure these people know that we care about these issues and that we want more and better bicycle infrastructure!

Here are three mayoral candidates views on biking from BCU:

Boston’s 12 mayoral candidates are in an all out sprint to determine which two hopefuls will stride past the primary election. Two weeks ago, 10 members of the bike community put 10 questions to them-and so far, three campaigns have answered. Does their timely response indicate the amount of priority they will give bicycles in their administration? You be the judge.

First to respond: Bill Walczak, Dorchester

Second to respond: John R. Connolly, West Roxbury

Third to respond: Felix G. Arroyo, Jamaica Plain

    Was there a reason BCU is forcing us to watch half an hour of video instead of just submitting a list of questions and the answers from the candidates?

    I mean really, would that have been hard?
