Alert courtesy Marcia Jeffredo

The Orange County Transportation Authority is sponsoring a bike ride 7:30 p.m. Thursday from the Metrolink Station, 194 N. Atchison Street, in the City of Orange to the OCTA headquarters, 550 S. Main Street, Orange. You will be riding with local elected officials, so get your biking wish list ready.

This is part of its celebration of National Bike Month.

As you can read on this poster, OCTA writes it wants to show you the new bicycles and bicycle parking equipment being introduced by the OCTA for the new BikeLink System. Because Metrolink is offering free train rides to anyone boarding with a bike, you can jump aboard at any Metrolink station and arrive at the Orange station in time for the rally.


OC County Supervisor Nelson’s bike gathering canceled

An AIDS charity bicycle event scheduled at the Meridian Sports Center in Yorba Linda Sunday, April 7, was canceled after ticket sales were slow, according to any email shared with the Veggie Biker.

The author of the email is being contacted.

The Veggie Biker had ridden to the event, publicized in the newsletter of Orange County Superviser Shawn Nelson, but found no bike gathering. The event had been canceled after Supervisor Nelson’s newsletter was published, it appears.

The sports center staff said they had gotten phone calls but know nothing of any event.
