Come celebrate another year of biking, camaraderie, and survival with BIKE JC, on Tuesday evening, December 11.
Raise a glass, and in the process give a little to the restoration of Liberty State Park, which was hit hard by Sandy. A portion of proceeds go to Friends of Liberty State Park. We use the paths, let's help rebuild them--over beers.
BIKE JC officers will be there to answer questions, provide policy updates, and even--if stars, moon, and bike wheels align--buy a round.

The next Bike JC general meeting is February 28, 8 pm, Zeppelin Hall.
We are working on Ward Tour 3. We have a date (click on notes to see what it is!) and would like *you* to come help!
We are also participating in the Saint Patrick's Day Parade on March 11, at 12 pm. It's a fun event and a great way to display cycling in JC pride and possibility. We have rolled through it for the past two years, fraternizing with the good folks at parade's end such as the Mardi Gras band, JC Food Coop, and the humane society. We will have more info on how to participate at/after the next meeting.

Here are some great animations from Commute Orlando that illustrate good on-road practices. Also see their section On the Road for some tips about courteous cycling. Remember, being on a bicycle is not a license to disobey traffic laws... Going the wrong way on one-way streets, using the sidewalk and not signaling turns are all too common behaviors that contribute to the idea that cyclists are 'jerks'.
