For a long time now people have dreamed about a safe bicycle route between Redding and Shasta College. —
Come celebrate the new bicycle lanes!
1:30 pm Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at Four Corners (Old Alturas Road at Old Oregon Trail). More information: East Redding Bike Lanes – Press Release
Please come out and bring a bicycle and a friend or two —– we need to show support for safe bicycling and walking infrastructure in our area. It was not long ago we heard a Redding city council member say there were only “200 people who ride bicycles” – his thinking was we should not fund such projects as it was a waste of money.
This crucial new section of bicycle lanes will be extended next year, with connections going to Columbia Elementary School and Big League Dreams. These lanes also have greatly improved connections between Palo Cedro and Redding by improving safety on one of the most dangerous sections on Old Alturas Road.
Bike lanes here used to be only a dream!
