Yesterday I bumped into Rock Miller again, this time at the Costa Mesa Bicycle Master Plan Update meeting. He’s everywhere these days.
Last night he was leading the discussion of bike paths and the opportunities for increasing the number of folks on bikes.
He was doing a good job, especially when it came to handling objections, like,
What do we do about scofflaw cyclists?
That can derail a meeting; I’ve seen it happen. Rock took it all in stride and handled the concern nicely; like many of us know, if you get 3-5x more people out on bikes there will be not so subtle pressure to fly right and obey traffic signals, for example.
Rock’s worked in Long Beach on the Green Sharrows in Belmont Shore and he’s part of the team working with Newport Beach on our Bicycle Master Plan.
