Better Bike Beverly Hills want to bring to your attention to this meeting between the Beverly Hills ad-hoc Bike Plan Update Committee and bike advocates. This meeting should indicate whether the city is committed to bike safety, or to “continuing a cynical effort to merely kick the can down the road” according to Better Bike BH’s Mark Elliot.  More info HERE
