Great turnout tonight, Seeya at the Capitol in the AM

Wow! What a great turnout out at the Candidate Forum tonight. Easily a 100+ cyclists. Interested in what happened? Check out the notes at Austin on Two Wheels. Marcus did a great job of taking them and uploading them right away. I was impressed that the candidates actually showed up at the forum - just goes to show that cyclists are gaining strength as a voting group. Most of the candidates ride often and are enthusiastic about making changes. Check out the crowd as well as the bikes parked outside. I'll post more thoughts about the issues and the candidates as time allows. Right now I gotta get ready for the House Transportation Committee's public hearing at 8AM. Please stop by if you can. Most likely we will be there all morning. You can also follow me on Twitter for updates as well as watch the live webcast if you can't make it.
