Want to Get Involved? This Thursday – Training, Intro, Meet & Greet

from the email:

The rally last week was amazing! With more than 175 of us gathering on City Hall lawn, we sent a clear message that Cambridge needs to do a lot more to make its streets safe for those biking and walking. But there’s a lot more work to do to make this a reality.

If you’re feeling energized by the rally, or if you had to miss it but want to get involved in pushing for a safe and equitable transportation system in Cambridge, we are holding a fun introductory event this week that you don’t want to miss: “CBS 101”. Come meet others pushing for safe streets, learn about Cambridge Bike Safety’s history and current efforts, and find out how you can get involved in ways large and small.

What: CBS 101 – Intro, Training, and Meet & Greet
When: This Thursday, Oct 25, 7-8:30pm
Where: The Democracy Center, 45 Mount Auburn St in Cambridge

RSVP on the Facebook event and share it with friends who might be interested.

Sincerely,
CBS Core

P.S. Check out coverage of the rally in the Cambridge Chronicle and Cambridge Day.

Help MassBike Train Police Officers

This is amazing, and highly useful, way to go MassBike!

——————-

We’re Crowdsourcing The State!

Help us capture the best of Massachusetts biking in video! MassBike is in the midst of producing a new police training video, working with the Boston Police Department and several other police departments. We’ve been busy filming the actual training scenarios, but we could use some help from every corner of Massachusetts to lend a statewide flavor to the production. We want ocean, mountains, historic buildings, and more recognizable Massachusetts places.

?

What we need:

  • Very short video clips of bicyclists passing iconic places all over MA
  • More short clips of cyclists passing the “Entering …” signs outside Massachusetts cities and towns
  • Shots can be first-person (on-bike) or third-person perspective

Technical specs: We’re using GoPro 1080p, 60fps, medium FOV. Try to keep each clip to no more than 10-15 seconds.

?

How to get involved: Email david@massbike.org and let me know what you plan to shoot. We’ll figure out the best way to get the files to us.

?

We can’t promise we’ll use everyone’s clips, but if we do we’ll credit you in the training video!
