In response to the recent death of San Francisco activist Kirsten
Brydum, New Orleans area cyclists have proposed the idea of
implementing a “bike buddy” program. Cyclists in need of a fellow
cyclist to accompany them to their destination would call a dispatch
hotline, and in turn, the hotline operator would dispatch the “bike
buddy” on duty for the night. We can also use the help of people with
cars, as well as those who can help patch tires.
If you are interested in helping to plan this program, whether as a
bike buddy or dispatcher, please attend our first meeting this Sunday,
October 12th at 1:00 pm, at the Iron Rail, 511 Marigny, New Orleans.
