Events: Bikeshare hack night, missing middle housing, and a JUMP happy hour

Tuesday, February 13: With five new dockless bikeshare systems joining Capital Bikeshare in DC, CaBi Hack Night is officially renamed Bikeshare Hack Night! Come out to the next meetup for a show and tell of apps and data visualizations about any of DC's bikesharing systems. Bikeshare Hack Night VII will be backstage at the Black Cat (1811 14th St NW ). Doors open at 6:30 pm, with speakers starting at 7 pm.

Tuesday, February 13: The DC region needs more "missing middle" housing for families making about $60-90,000, or 80-120 percent of the Area Median Income. To learn more about the "missing middle," head to the next Action Committee for Transit meeting with Pamela Lindstrom, former land use chair of Montgomery County Sierra Club. The event starts at 7:30 pm at the Silver Spring Civic Center (One Veterans Pl, Silver Spring). 

Thursday, February 15: A new book, "Suburban Remix: Creating the Next Generation of Urban Places," discusses ways that suburbs can evolve and thrive by investing in the design methods and approaches focused on a more human-scale, feel, and form. The book features excerpts from several other Washingtion region planners and advocates. Hear from planner Jason Beske, planner/urban designer David Dixon, and others at a book talk at 11:30 am at the National Building Museum. This is a paid event. 

Next Tuesday, February 20: JUMP Bikes, one of the new dockless bikeshare companies, is standing out of the crowd with electric-assist pedaling and a built-in bike lock. Have you gotten a chance to try one? Join the Coalition for Smarter Growth and JUMP Bikes for a happy hour at 6:30 pm at Bar Roubaix (1400 Irving St NW), DC's newest bicycling-themed bar, to meet the JUMP Bikes team, mingle with the CSG team and fellow smart growth supporters, and test out one of JUMP's bright coral electric assist bikes!
