Too many bicyclists have been killed by drivers in Anchorage in the last year. Enough to make riders reconsider using our streets. We’ll host a community discussion on bike safety. As more people are using bicycles for transportation, are we taking the right steps to keep the roads safe for all travelers? Join us with your questions and comments.
