When: 7pm
Where 20 child st, JP

Greetings all,

As you may know, JP bikes has been in the works for a while. The time has come to start pulling together resources to make this happen. We will have our first meeting at the AGGASIZ school in Jamaica Plain (which is located: 20 Child St, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130) at 7:00PM SHARP! Please bring snacks, a pen, a notebook, and an open mind as we will be brainstorming, planning and acquiescing on some crucial topics facing Jamaica Plain bicyclists (of which we number some 900!!). We’re looking for people to head a steering committee to get things in order, so if you know a friend or relative who has the fortitude to help lead us into the next year, please bring them. We will keep the duration of the meeting reasonable and keep the things moving.

If you need more information, you can reach me, Rajen Bhatt at this email address: [email protected]

Let’s make this happen.

Regards-
Rajen
