Eleven East Bay Schools Ready to Build $5.7 Million in Safe Routes to School Projects

Eleven East Bay Schools Ready to Build $5.7 Million in Safe Routes to School Projects

We are happy to report that the California Department of Transportation has awarded 11 Safe Routes to School grants to schools in the East Bay. Is your kid’s school on the list below? A total of $5.7 million in funds have been awarded in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. These projects include new bikeways on Farm Bureau Rd in Concord, Canal Rd in Pittsburg and Blacow Rd in Fremont. Alameda County schools in particular did well to receive so many grants, which is a testimony to the great work of Transform, Cycles of Change, and our supportive local cities and their staff to get more kids walking and bicycling to school. Good habits start early! On Bike to School Day this past May, bicycling rates to many schools tripled, and the numbers are only growing. It’s is great to see cities working hard to keep up with this surging demand. It is also encouraging to know that thanks to our successful advocacy work, the regional Safe Routes to School Program is intact and fully funded for the next 4 years. We are also working to ensure that the State does not take any of these monies in the future for other roadway projects. Your help may be needed for this. Stay tuned.

2500 Cinderellas on the Road

2500 Cinderellas on the Road

Bonnie Powers has promoted and ridden the Cinderalla Classic for 33 years. She was in good spirits on April 4 as the “Prince Charmings” in the Valley Spokemen put on a tremendous event that attacts thousands of female riders to the Livermore and San Ramon Valleys. The women- and girls-only metric-century kicks-off the ride season each year and pre-registration again reached the 2500 limit well before the day of the event.

Among the riders was EBBC Board Member Mary Norton, joined by her daughter who made the Cinderalla part of her spring break visit from her senior year in college.

Costumed riders add to the festivity and seem to get more creative every year. Check out the photos of Kimberly’s jester outfit and coordinated message pinned to her back. She stopped by the EBBC table to chat with Ricardo and Robert after “a great ride on a beautiful day,” sharing that she only began regularly riding a bicycle two years ago during Bike to Work Day!

It is a 2006 Specialized Hardrock Pro Bike. It is the black/gray colored bicycle. Had a small pouch under the seat for storing stuff from Livermore cyclery. Had a water bottle holder, a holder for a small air pump and it had a spedometer on the handle bars. It was very dusty as it had just been ridden up the Plesanton ridge.
