Community Bike Ride Saturday April 9th

The City of Oxnard Environmental Resources is celebrating Earth Day 2016 on Saturday the 9th. This is a link to the webpage http://publicworks.cityofoxnard.org/14/4/1057.

This is a great opportunity to enjoy a morning ride and then check out the various offerings of the Earth Day sponsors and vendors. Do not worry about your bike. The event is providing free bike valet parking.

There will be much activity that morning. I am moving the meeting place to B and 5th in front of Starbucks. If that turns out to be inaccessible, we’ll meet at the corner of A and 5th.

If you are using a vehicle to transport your bike, you may need to park further away than normal.

U.S. Bicycling Participation Benchmarking Report

How many Americans ride a bike? How often do they ride? Why do they ride?

Accurate information on bicycling participation is essential in evaluating our overall work and the effectiveness of our programs and key projects. Existing research on bicycling participation has been been limited to either recreational riding or transportation riding of certain types. This new participation research, commissioned by PeopleForBikes and conducted by Breakaway Research Group, is designed to address these limitations by standardizing how participation is bicycling of any kind, by any type of rider, is measured and tracked over time.

Topline results:

• Thirty-four percent of Americans ages 3+ rode a bicycle at least one day in the past year.
• Of those who rode a bicycle, 30% rode five days or fewer.
• Those who rode for transportation are much more likely to have done so to get to and from social, recreation, or leisure activities (70%) than to have commuted to and from work or school (46%).
• Forty-eight percent of adults in the U.S. don’t have access to an operational bicycle at home.
• Fifty-four percent of adults in the U.S. perceive bicycling as a convenient way to get from one place to another and 53% would like to ride more often. However, 52% worry about being hit by a car and 46% say they would be more likely to ride a bicycle if motor vehicles and bicycles were physically separated.
