Just a reminder that our November RAT ride is scheduled for this Saturday November 22. And the weather forecast looks pretty decent compared to last week. See you at Crankenstein at 1:00 PM. For this ride we'll go the length of Laurel (the top priority collector street project from the 2014 Bicycle Master Plan) and Mountain (the top priority arterial street project from that Plan). We'll use Loomis (top priority collector street project for 2015 from the Bicycle Master Plan) to ride between the two. The feedback we collect on these Corridors will go to FC Bikes and apply to these very timely projects. After the ride we'll RAT hole at Crankenstein to collect our thoughts and warm up. If you know of other riders who would be interested in joining us, please forward this message on to them. ...
