Hello Bicycle Access Council members,
Here's a news flash that should not be missed!
The Bicycle Access Council hosted the Third Annual Pennsylvania Bike Club Conference March 26 in York, PA. Eleven bike clubs participated to discuss "Best Practices" and networking with other club officers. Was your club there?
Just a reminder of the April 3 time change to Daylight Saving Time. We wouldn't want any BAC members to show up late for those Sunday club rides. Clocks move forward--Spring Ahead!

IT'S ALMOST HERE...Bike Month and Bike-to-Work Week/Day.

Rack 'em Up...
The Bicycle Access Council will help York's rabbittransit(tm) company roll out a bus bike rack promotion next month.
