Gone Biking
With Rick somewhere in the plains states on his Fuller Center Tour, and Chris training for an IRonman, and Vern in parts unknown, it looks like no meeting in July either. Maybe August? Join the google group from this page or contact Corrie for information.


Master Bicycle Plan

The Bicycle Master Plan started it's 30 day public comment period today. The plan documents can be found at the following location along with instructions for submitting comments. You must submit comments no later than 26 MAY 2015. The entire bicycling community is encouraged to read through the plan and submit comments. This Plan will define the path forward for the next several years with regard to bicycle development in the LC Valley. Now is the time to submit your input

Comments on the draft plan are requested and will be accepted prior to or during the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) meeting on May 27, 2015, at 1:30 p.m. at 215 D Street, Lewiston, Idaho.   Comments will also be accepted in writing prior to the meeting by email to sgrow@cityoflewiston.org r by mail to: Lewis Clark Valley MPO, PO Box 759, Asotin, Washington, 99402.



LCBA’s appreciation for communication and teamwork is their strongest asset at the beginning of what will, hopefully, be a long presence in the area. Their membership currently accounts for around 40 people, but expects to attract cross-sectional representation across demographics as they present what they can offer to the community based on multiple survey responses collected from the public. With regular meetings on the third Thursday of every month, the organization looks to be well on its way to making positive change for residents and visitors alike.--Bicycle Paper

Where the Sidewalk Ends . . 

   


 Shel Silverstein discovered a world of fantasy and magic. Too often Lewis Clark Valley pedestrians and cyclists just find gravel, a pothole or two, and a feeling that you . . . 

. . . just can't get there from here.

If you would like to restore the magic, or even just extend the sidewalk, come join us.

    So what does a bicycle advocacy group do when the summer agenda looks sorta thin? We go biking, of course.

    That means the June meeting on the 18th has been cancelled and perhaps the July meeting as well. With Rick cycling across the entire USA with the Fuller Center, the rest of us just couldn't stand it. We've gone biking.

    June Saturday Farmers Market Bicycle Ride




    LCBA will sponsor another ride in conjunction with Beautiful Downtown Lewiston's Farmers Market on Saturday, June 20th.
    Every Saturday, June – September, visit the Lewiston Farmers Market in downtown Lewiston. The market runs from 5:00-8:00 p.m. in the D Street Parking Lot and Brackenbury Square.
    We will start and finish at Brackenbury Square on June 20th. We will plan a short ride of about 10 miles and share information about bike/walk advocacy in the valley.


    Our rides are meant for everyone
    . Beginners come learn about biking in the valley. Advanced cyclists come share your expertise and help build the cycling community.  Can you imagine a ciclovia on Main and D?

    Find a friend who'd like to get started riding and bring him/her along. Let's get those bikes out of the garages! But start training now, 'cause the Septermber ride will be a night ride. You'll want lights and flashing tailight.

    Not sure what biking in the valley is all about? Visit the Twin Rivers Cyclists and like them on Facebook. We noticed today the calendar has been updated and includes a Wednesday evening family ride led by Stehanie Goeckner on the Greenbelt.

    Rotary Rivers and Ridges Ride on September 26th. Family distances, a 50 and a 100 mile route. This is the second annual presentation of Rivers and Ridges and Riverfest. Put it on your calendar and start training today.
