Pioneers at the California Transportation Commission's Technical Advisory Committee

One week ago Matt Turner, Chair of the Alameda County Transportation Commission’s Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee, and Craig Davis, Founder of www.CyclistVideoEvidence.com, presented to the California Transportation Commission’s Technical Advisory Committee on “Criminal Near Miss Data for Inclusion in ATP Safety Scoring Rubric.” Currently, only collision data is explicitly requested in the Active Transportation Program funding grants. We believe that collisions are a lagging indicator of safety: when a collision occurs it signifies the failure of all of the forces arrayed for public safety. We believe that criminal near misses are a leading safety indicator that can identify, educate and in some cases prosecute egregiously dangerous drivers, before collisions occur. 

Consistent with Craig's recent presentation at the National Bike Summit in Washington D.C., no one in the room had ever heard of the term criminal near miss, or of a driver being charged with assault or reckless driving, actual criminal near misses, using cyclist video evidence, as in our Glendale and Castro Valley legal precedents. Audible gasps could be heard when we showed this condensed version of our California cyclists’ video evidence of criminal near misses. 

After our presentation a key TAC member called us pioneers in this work.

There was a great deal of audience interest, and we successfully introduced these important concepts, but we have significant work ahead of us to get criminal near miss data explicitly included in the ATP grant safety scoring rubric. In the mean time, we have been told that CNM data can be included in ATP grants. 

All cyclists need to keep submitting their criminal near miss incident reports to our free Incident Management System for their own safety, the safety of their cycling community and to generate criminal near miss data to fund local road safety improvements without requiring collisions. CNM data, combined with objective cyclist video evidence, also provides government agencies with the most accurate picture of the experienced and perceived risks causing cyclists to stop cycling and preventing others from cycling. 

We need to work with the CTC to make sure all government agencies are aware of the critical concept of criminal near misses and to promote these legal precedents for the safety of all California cyclists.

moderated SAVE THE DATE: Walt's 87th Birthday - The Thursday Morning Coffee Ride Celebrates!

Lori Sommer
 

Hello FFBC Members,
It is that time of year again.  I just updated the ride calendar to add Walt's Birthday Ride for Thursday September 13th (next week, not this Thursday).

WhenThu, September 13, 9:00am – 1:30pm
WhereVisitor Center, 2 Marshlands Rd, Fremont, CA 94555, USA (map)
Description
Miles: 27
Elevation Gain: 530ft

Walt is turning 87! He continues to inspire us and will make his annual birthday trek up "Nike Hill". The climb is optional for everyone else. This year we will keep the celebration simple.  

https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28516017

Meet at the large parking lot (left at the stop sign on Marshlands at the top of the hill, don't descend to the Dumbarton Bridge) above the Don Edward Visitor Center (restrooms) for helmet ribbons and lots of pictures. Then we will head to Coyote Hills to get the hard part done early as per Walt's request before taking the Alameda Creek trail to Isherwood, then the streets into Niles with a few regroups along the way. We will grab some ice cream, coffee and snacks at various locations and regroup at the Niles Plaza to relax and enjoy the day. There two choices for ice cream (a micro-creamery and a more traditional shop), a pour-over coffee shop and a taco truck. With so many sweets available we will forgo cake (no worries, he will have one at the Tour de Fuzz potluck).

I sure hope you can come celebrate with Walt!

moderated Special Offer: Cycling in Japan This Oct - Fall Adventures Await

Rob McManmon
 

Hi Freewheelers,


Hope you all are doing well! I wanted to reach out, in case any riders out there are itching for a cycling get-away.


As you might know, I lead small groups of riders on cycling tours in Japan each year, and we are getting ready to start our fall season next week. One of our trips just had a group of 4 riders drop from our Tour of the North Alps due to family reasons, and we are hoping to fill their spots asap. The trip dates are Oct 21-28, 2018, and I encourage you to check out the detailed itinerary on our site to make sure the trip is a good fit for your ride level. Keep in mind there are plenty of options to add distance and climbs throughouthttps://biketourjapan.com/north-3/ 


If there is a group of 4+ that is interested, I’d be happy to offer $500 off per rider, as this is an unusual circumstance and a last-minute departure. The price of the 8-day trip will be $3950 (includes all meals/snacks/bike rental/sag/taxes/fees/tips) and single supplement is $750. This is the lowest price we have ever been able to offer for this trip, and we can't wait to introduce new guests to this spectacular corner of Japan--it's absolutely amazing for riders who enjoy scenic climbs/descents on quiet roads, excellent food, and unbelievable nature. We would like to confirm bike sizes, dietary preferences, allergies, and other travel details as soon as possible. We are planning to lock in our ryokan hotel reservations on 9/16, so please confirm with me by Sept 15 if you are interested in joining us on this epic cycling adventure. Thanks, and hope to ride with you all soon! Don't hesitate to reach out with any immediate questions or concerns.  


All the best,

Rob

Happy Labor Day weekend!  Today, I rode up Calaveras Rd with the intent to ride up to the false summit from Felter Rd.  Calaveras Rd is currently closed at the Alameda County border to the false summit through next week.  According to the work crew, they are repaving the road ONLY on the Alameda County side.  They also advised that Calaveras Road will be completely open to vehicle traffic on schedule, October 1st (Monday).

moderated E-Bike for sale, Flashbike v1

West Kurihara
 

Hello, FFBC members.  It seems that not everyone is using the subgroups on this email list so I am sending this to the general info list.  So far, there are only 6 people subscribing to the forsale@ffbc.groups.io list.  If you want to take advantage of the subgroups that have been created, forsale, offers, discussion, you can sign up for these specific groups at:


If we don't take advantage of these subgroups, then everyone will simple send all messages to the broader info group and we will all simply get a lot of messages we aren't interested in reading....

Anyhow, enough with the public service part of the message....

I am selling an E-Bike that I purchased about 9 months ago.  It has probably less than 200 miles and is like new complete with a fender kit.  It's a perfect city commuter bike complete with integrated lights, fenders and a rugged and reliable rear motor drive.  The bike has an integrated cellular modem with bluetooth communications with a Flashbike phone app, which reports GPS position, battery state, etc, much like a Tesla App for tesla vehicles.  Being a MTB type layout with flat bars, the bike can fit people from between about 5'4" to 6'2".

Battery range is from 24 to 60 miles per charge depending upon power setting and terrain and rider effort.


Info and Specs here: 

I am asking for $1000 or best reasonable offer.  Please contact me at my personal email:
