Rad Massaker Alleycat

What is Rad Massaker Alleycat?

Well, the 2009 Rad Massaker Alleycat is a bicycle race/fundraiser for Cycles of Change.

An “Alleycat” is a race in which participants are given a list of checkpoints spread across the city at the start and must determine the best route on their own as opposed to following a set course. Originated by bike messengers in the 1980's, alleycats are meant to simulate the types of daily challenges they faced on the job.

Starting line at:
Mosswood Park

Save Your Bus! Take AC Transit's Survey

Save Your Bus! Take AC Transit's Survey

Like other public transit agencies, AC Transit is undergoing severe budget problems. With the elimination of state assistance for operations like salaries, maintenance, and gas they are looking at 15% service cuts just to stay afloat. They are asking riders to take a short survey to help them prioritize routes and to decide how and where to cut. This survey was also given out at the recent series of community meetings on service reductions.
