Dear Motherlode Bicycle Coalition Members,
Thanks for being a member!
We hope this newsletter finds you safe, outside, riding and healthy. The MLBC Board Members are optimistic about the new year. We are committed to making our roads safe for bike riding and being a public partner in all Caltrans District 10 and county public work road projects.
Our 2021 scheduled bike ride plans include Covid safety procedures in place and a continued commitment to exploring the Gold Rush Towns in the Motherlode.
The new year is looking better than March 2020 when all things bike related were cancelled: RideandWalk4Art, Monthly Pop Up bike rides in Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties and MLBC in person board meetings.
We did meet as a Board using Zoom to discuss advocacy actions that would support safe bike routes. Also, we shared our collective voice with Caltrans and county transportation agencies.
Active Transportation Plans were updated with your comments and suggestions.
We held our holiday party on Zoom which included a presentation from Youth Bike America. Our special guests included SFUSD Teacher Andy Padlo, a Senior Projects Teacher from the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts and three recent graduates: Emmet Forde, Dasha Yurkevich and Julian Jordan. They shared their Bike Ride Across America during the summer of 2020!
Provided comments to improve the Active Transportation Plans in Calaveras and Tuolumne Counties.
