EBBC Annual Retreat

Saturday, January 23, 2010 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

Ready to make 2010 the best year ever for bicycling in the East Bay? Please join us for the East Bay Bicycle Coalition’s Annual Retreat at Jack London Aquatic Center in Oakland. On January 23rd, EBBC staff, board, members and coalition partners will gather to discuss our campaigns and strategies for the coming year. Attending the annual retreat is a great way to get an in-depth look at our advocacy efforts, share your ideas for the future direction of EBBC, strengthen your ties to the bicycling community, and find out how you can get involved in making bicycling better in your town.

Please RSVP to Carrie Harvilla, 510-533-7433 or carrie (dot) harvilla (at) ebbc (dot) org by January 20th.
