Do you care about bike lanes? Do you want the streets of Eureka to be safer for bicyclists? Join us for a ride around Eureka to talk about bike infrastructure and give input on the Eureka Bike Plan.
We will be meeting at the Old Town Gazebo (2nd and F St.) at 5:30 pm and riding through the Eureka core, exploring current and proposed bike lanes/infrastructure and dreaming about what a bike-friendly Eureka of the future could look like. We will end at House of Nice (712 5th St.) for refreshments, to share ideas and give input to the City of Eureka about its Bike Plan.
This ride is intended for people who are at least somewhat comfortable riding on the streets of Eureka, but you don’t need to be an expert. You also don’t need to be an expert on infrastructure. If you can ride a bike and want the streets of Eureka to be safer and more comfortable for bicyclists, this ride is for you.
If you have questions or want to know more about the route, please contact Caroline at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This ride is intended not only for those who are curious about plants, but those who are curious about biking and maybe don’t do it as much as they’d like. We understand that not everyone is comfortable using bikes as transportation and it’s our goal to create spaces for folks to develop a cycling habit. It’s easier (and more fun!) if we do it together. Beginners are very welcome.
We will be meeting at Windsong Park in Arcata (Ariel Way near Lorelei Lane) and taking a leisurely ride through town, stopping at points along the way to learn about our plant relatives. The route is still being determined based on plant-identification in-progress, but we will most likely end at the NEC office (415 I St.) for refreshments.
If you indicate on the registration form that you don’t have a bike, we’ll be in touch beforehand to arrange to meet at an Arcata bikeshare station and rent you one. It’s on us.
