Bicycle enthusiasts encouraged to attend meeting


There may still be snow on the ground but bicycling season will soon be here. For a few die-hards who can be seen bicycling throughout the winter snow is no excuse not to ride. But most of us will wait for warmer weather and clear roads and paths.

Tahoe Region Advocates for Cycling has been formed to represent the interests of all cyclists. The organization’s mission statement reads: To promote and enhance all aspects of cycling in the Tahoe Region, to be a clearinghouse for information and an advocate for issues that affect all cyclists, and to foster community support and involvement in promoting cycling as a viable transportation alternative, which improves environmental and lifestyle quality.

With these goals in mind TRAC will conduct monthly meetings currently scheduled to take place on the second Tuesday of each month. The March 13 meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the Kahle Community Center Rubicon Room, 236 Kingsbury Grade. Committees will be formed on everything from bicycle commuting to BMX to safety and education. Input is needed by everyone who is a cyclist – recreational, professional or commuter – no matter if it be road mountain, BMX or any other human powered cycle. Public and private transportation agency representatives are encouraged to attend. TRAC is looking forward to working together to make cycling a safe and viable transportation alternative.

At 6 p.m. on March 8 Douglas County Parks and Recreation will discuss bike paths as the first item on its agenda. The meeting will take place at Kahle Community Center.
