Quotes from Downtown Business Owners

We are glad to see the bike lanes in Downtown Redding and are looking forward to seeing more bike racks to make it easier for people to park their bikes safely. We encourage people to ride their bicycles to our restaurant – We look forward to seeing you!”   – Steven and Barbara Berger, Café Paradisio.

“I’m buying a bicycle now because the bike lanes make it possible for me to ride from my house to work!” –Alex Gaxiola, Co-Owner, Vintage Wine Bar and Restaurant

“I’m really excited there are these new improvements now and I can feel good about my kids riding around downtown.”—Janis Logan, Co-Owner, Vintage Wine Bar and Restaurant

“I’m really jazzed” about the bike repair station, “you don’t have to carry tools. There’s a pump. … Sometimes I sit out here. I see people passing by, and they have a flat ride. This is something where they can stop by and fix their bike.”  – Jim Koenigsaecker, Chief Executive officer of Innovations Housing, owner of Coffee Bar.
