A list of issues raised Wednes- day includes the following: sup- porting enforcement of dog con- trol laws; inattentive driving; pavement quality, including poor riding conditions on Plantations Road; need for more facilities at shoppng centers and in small towns; better eduction of tourists/visitors; promoting events to increase bicycle acceptance/ awareness; supporting bike units in police departments; and in- creased enforcement of wrong- way riders.
