Detroit Avenue Green Lanes – The Party!

The green bike lanes on Detroit Avenue have been installed for several months, but their official ribbon cutting was celebrated the last Saturday of September.  Many neighborhood and community organizations were represented: First Five Contra Costa, Central County Regional Group, Monument Impact, Contra Costa Health Services, Healthy and Active Before 5, and the City of Concord. True to the spirit of healthy living,  Zumba dance class participants demonstrated their moves and information about healthy cooking and nutrition was provided throughout the event – even bicycle powered smoothies! Monument Impact provided free, delicious and healthful food for all participants.  Bike Concord provided free bike repair, and Bike East Bay in partnership with County Health Services, staffed the bike rodeo for young riders.  Bike East Bay also staffed a booth promoting Measure X on November’s ballot, which if passed, will raise millions of dollars in transportation revenue.  Extensive work done by Bike Concord and Bike East Bay has secured a portion of those funds for active transportation projects. With significant funding in place, we can begin to make popular projects like the Detroit Avenue green lanes possible throughout Concord.
