Join Us This Saturday (April 28th) for the Provo River Trail Grand Opening

Gather your family, friends and neighbors and  join Mayor John Curtis for a spring bike ride to celebrate the re-opening of the Provo River Trail. Experience the reconstructed, lighted tunnel under the freeway, completed six months ahead of schedule as part of UDOT’s I-15 Corridor Expansion (I-15 CORE). All riders are welcome. Refreshments provided.

Come for the whole ride, or choose the ride length that best works for you and your family. We’ll start at 11:00 a.m at the mouth of Provo Canyon, will ride by 2230 N. and University Ave at 11:15 a.m. and will be at Paul Ream Park on the trail for the Grand Opening Event at 11:30 a.m. Come out to support bikes and projects like this in Provo! Can’t wait to see you there!

IMPORTANT: This Tuesday (April 10th) Help Create the Provo Bike Plan

For the last six months or so, Provo has been working on creating a comprehensive bike plan that will have a huge impact on our city’s bikability. On Tuesday night, they’ll be presenting the draft of the bike plan at a public open house.

The proposed plan is expected to include many new trail designations, rail / trail paths, and other really exciting elements. Please come and make your support known!

When: Tuesday, April 10th, 2012, 4:30-7pm (drop by when you can)
