Riding in Salt Lake

The City of Salt Lake has a "Mayors Bicycling Advisory Committee" that meets monthly. The meetings are on the second Wednesday of every month from 5-7 pm in the Canon Room on the 3rd floor of the City and County building at 451 South State Street. For additional information contact Lisa Romney at 801-535-7704.
