Local bicyclists prepare ‘Bike to Work’ event

Ahhh springtime – and the sun sure feels good. The warmer weather has brought out more than the flowers and budding trees. Many more cyclists, pedestrians and yes – cars can be seen plying the highways and byways around Tahoe. Along with them comes the reminder of the traffic yet to come and the fact that alternative commuting around Tahoe can become a dangerous game of roulette.

Tahoe Region Advocates for Cycling, a growing group formed to represent the interests of cyclists through advocacy and education, will meet at 6 p.m. May 8 at the Timber Cove Lodge, 3411 Lake Tahoe Blvd. Along with updates on current projects TRAC is planning a “Bike to Work” event in conjunction with the California Bike Commute Week 2001 May 14 through 18.

One voice can move ideas – many voices can move mountains. In this case the mountains that must be conquered are monolithic regulations, EIRs, EIPs, deadlines, attitudes and the like. Let your voice be heard. Anyone who has an interest in seeing cycling in the Tahoe region become safer and more enjoyable should plan to attend and bring a friend.
