According to the Land Conservancy, Feature-Project_Barn_resize“In addition becoming the new trailhead for the Bob Jones City-to-Sea Trail, plans are underway to transform the formerly private site into a public amenity with the fully restored Barn as the keystone element.”

Bike to Work Day!

Can Every Day Be Bike to Work Day?

While we’d love to see every day be Bike to Work Day, this Friday, May 15th 2015 is in fact Bike to Work Day all over SLO County.

diana400What is Bike to Work Day? It’s a national celebration to encourage people to try bicycle commuting as a healthy and safe alternative to driving. Participants of Bike to Work Day are encouraged to make stops at locations around SLO County that will provide them with the fuel they need to complete their commutes!

This year there will be special Bike to Work Day events in Atascadero, Grover Beach, Morro Bay, Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo sponsored by Rideshare’s Back ‘N’ Forth Club. The Back ‘N’ Forth Club is the region’s employer commute program. To learn more about the Back ‘N’ Forth Club visit iRideshare.org
