Our event for August is an informal social gathering/meeting at 5:30pm on Thursday 8th in the CPIT cafe, Rakaia Centre entrance, Main Polytechnic Building, Madras St. There are 2 reasons for this get together- you are welcome to come to come to the bits that interest you.
1) Frocks-meet-SCIRT Representative (30 minutes):
Sick of been treated like a 3rd class commuter when you are one your bike or walking around road works? There will be a short SCIRT (Strong Chch Infrastructure Recovery Team) presentation about walking and cycling access around rebuild road works. We want you feedback to help make things better for everyone. The more the SCIRT rep hears the same issues the more likely we will see change!
2) Update and Changes to the Ciclovia/Open Streets Festival (30 minutes):
The Ciclovia/Open Streets Festival has been rescheduled to 29th Sept. We can tweak things from the perspective of participating community groups such as Spokes/Living Streets/Frocks on Bikes/ICECycles. CCC staff involved in organising the event will also be invited.
One item worthy of discussion is the Fashion Parade and theme. 29th Sept is no longer Bastille Day so should we retain the French theme? Whatever we go with, let’s put our energies into making it really WOW!
For those who want to discuss other active transport issues, feel free to stay longer.
Note: The cafe’s food and drinks counter closes at 6:00pm but the sitting area remains open. So Buy Your Own beverages and comestibles before 6pm.
Reminder – 5:30pm Thursday 8th August in the CPIT cafe, Rakaia Centre entrance, Main Polytechnic Building, Madras St. I hope you will bike there! Bike parking is at the centre front of the building. When you come through the main doors the café area is just inside to the right. Don’t forget your lights and locks!
