In today’s edition of Oakland Local, I wrote up yesterday’s Oaklavía festival. What a great ride!

I met several wonderful volunteers there, many of whom stationed themselves along the two-mile route to educate kids on safe bike riding. Did any of you G’view kiddos roll through the “Kids Bike Town”? Children and adults alike chalked traffic lanes in a mini-street scene along Broadway.

Chane, an organizer from Cycles of Change, spoke about her work and the ways of the road in Bike Town:

Cycles for Change recently helped escort kids from Glenview Elementary and Edna Brewer Middle schools to class on Bike 2 School Day. They also offer programs and information about safe road riding on their Web site. Check it out, have fun and be safe out there!
