Family Bicycling Day 2016

Shasta Living Streets has organized Family Bicycling Day on Sequoia and Placer Streets in the Garden Tract in Redding CA on  Sunday, October 9, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.   Free to everyone.

Redding joins six California cities to host open street events in October:
San Diego CicloSDias, Berkeley Sunday Streets, CicLAvia in Los Angeles, San Francisco’s Sunday Streets, Open Streets Santa Cruz, and Fresno.

Six years ago, Redding was one of the first cities in the nation to host open street events.  When we started we were one of 50, now there are 133 cities in the nation with open street programs.

The main activity is you! It’s a people-powered parade and it’s not just about bikes – you can walk with friends, skate, roll or dance.  Throw a Frisbee.  Show off that special bicycle:  the lowrider cruiser, the cargo bike, the family bicycle train, or the fancy street bike.

Bring someone who does not ride often on city streets.  Decorate your bike.  Enjoy the people watching.
