Bici Holiday Party!
Happy Holidays from Bici Bicycle Cooperative! Come celebrate the holidays with us at the shop, and meet the 2014 Bici Board.
We’ll have beer (so much better than milk), maybe some mulled wine, and cookies. There will be plenty of booze, but help out the cookie count and bring some to share.
7:00pm at the coop, 1211 28th St. S. Off of Highland Ave, up the hill from Rhodes park.
This Saturday, November 23! Come support those in need by riding your bike and having some beer.
Start and finish is at Good People Brewing.Registration at noon, ride at 1:00. You will receive a manifest at registration. No cost to enter, you just need money to buy non-perishable food items along the route. All food will be collected at the finish and donated to the Community Food bank of Central Alabama.
There will be prizes, donated by Good People and Finer Grind Coffee Roasters, for first person back (must go to each stop) and person to bring back the most food items. So be sure to bring at back pack, messenger bag, or something to carry lots of canned food items.
ALSO, Good People is donating $1 of every beer purchased between noon and 5pm to the Food Bank.
This is tonight! Try to get friends who don’t already ride to come out. We need people who don’t own bikes to be interested, as they are the people who would benefit from this more an those of us who already ride all the time.

Make it happen!
“[The Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham] wants to know from residents and business owners between downtown Birmingham and Irondale, Leeds and Trussville what is working for or against transportation, access and economic development along the dual corridor.
The planning commission has scheduled a series of meetings this month — two with residents, one with businesses — to get public input as the group begins the U.S. 11/U.S. 78 East Corridor Study, a comprehensive look at the present and future along those routes.”
Bici folks are planning to attend to voice our want for more bike lanes and general bike infrastructure in the area. Please consider joining us to make the cyclists’ opinions and wishes heard! We must speak up if we want any chance of improving cycling in Birmingham.
