For the Bicycle Riders in Joaquin Neighborhood

We used to live in Draper, Utah, where almost every day, rain or shine, I would see person after person either sweating or freezing to death in skintight clothes as they toiled up one of the largest hills I have ever had the privilege to live on. Who were these crazy people (with amazing calf muscles)? Bikers, of course!

At our last neighborhood meeting we had Aaron Skabelund from the Provo Bicycle Committee chat with us for a few minutes about the new Provo Bicycle Plan and it's impact it would have on our neighborhood. Take a minute to read it! I'm excited about it because it will not only connect bike lanes in the city so bikers can get where they need to go safely, but it will make certain streets in our neighborhood more pedestrian-friendly for those of us who like to walk.

I also learned about two fun weekly events that start at Joaquin Park here in our neighborhood:

Monday Night: Night Ride, starts at 9 p.m.: a moonlit jaunt around our fair city, and

Thursday Food Truck Ride, starts at 7: a family-friendly bike ride to the Food Truck Roundup at 560 S. 100 W.

If you want more specifics, search for bikeprovo.org on Facebook, or contact Aaron Skabelund at a.skabelund@gmail.com. He is chairman of the Provo Bicycle Committee and can get you connected with other bikers in our community!
