With the recent opening of the Arana Gulch Multi-Use Trail and the addition of the green lanes on Laurel Street, Santa Cruz is really starting to live up to that “bicycle friendly” town we all know and love. These two long-awaited additions set the stage for one of the biggest bike parties yet!
This past weekend People Power & Green Ways to School put on “Light Up The Night”, a bike ride and bike light giveaway geared toward promoting well-illuminated night bicycling. The event featured bike decorating, bike art, spoke card making as well as free helmet and bike light giveaway. The event culminated with a group bike ride of over 200 participants from children and dogs to avid cyclists and even organizers from the San Jose Bike Party!
Santa Cruz Bike Party happens every second Friday of the month! 7:00pm starting at the Bike Church on Spruce Street. Everyone is welcome! See you there, bring your lights!
“Light up the Night” was sponsored by Bell Sports, MonkeyLectric, Zackees, Light & Motion Bike Lights and the Santa Cruz County Traffic Safety Coalition.
