Sustainability Cruise

After several weeks of discussion amongst all those involved, CSULB Cyclists and Friends of Colorado Lagoon (FoCL) are ecstatic to announce our next monthly ride, the Sustainability Cruise.

Join us as we visit a number of wetlands sites around Long Beach to hear experts talk about land use issues and how you can help. This short ride will give you an insiders look at a world which is fast disappearing.

With luck maybe you will catch a glimpse of a snowy egret or woolly mammoth!

When: The morning of April 5th at 10:00am
Where: Colorado Lagoon

Bike Tips in the Union (newspaper)

I am in the early stages of getting a weekly spot in the Union (our other school newspaper) devoted to cycling tips. One example is to ask people not to ride on sidewalks. Another one is to offer suggestions on locking up bikes. Locking up one quick release wheel is not good practice.
This is not guaranteed by any means, but everyone could start thinking of some brief tips to print.
