In 2016 The Bike Campaign organized 27 events in Yolo County, including a Kidical Mass Family Bike Ride, 8 Free Bike Clinics at schools and residential complexes, a 5-week elementary school Bike Club, valet bike parking for a Brewfest & May is Bike Month events.
Volunteers at The Bike Garage repaired and recycled over 200 bikes. 50 Bikes were given free to individuals and families in need of reliable transportation along with training, helmets/locks & lights
We put on the 1st Annual UCD Leadership Bike Tour, 1st Annual Davis Leadership Bike Tour to welcome Davis Joint Unified’s new Superintendent Dr. John Bowes, and the 1st Annual Woodland Leadership Bike Tour to celebrate the installation of the first secure bike racks at the Yolo County Fairgrounds.
We rode in the Davis Picnic Day Parade, displayed beautiful bikes at several businesses in Woodland (thank you Mojo’s, Blue Note Brewing, Sweet Potato Pie, Corner Drug), and taught 25 children and adults how to ride a bike.
We provided training, support and bike helmets for a group of 50 refugees in Sacramento, and started our Family-Friendly Bike/accessory Lending Library. Together with the City of Woodland’s Parks & Rec. department we participated in the Commit2Fit program and put on the BIGGEST 4th of July bike parade in Northern California – over 500 bikes rolled down Main Street, Woodland.
