This week, #DamienTalks with David Diaz with Day One and BikeSGV about the Mulhall Bike Park that is under construction in El Monte. The Bike Park is literally designed to do exactly what it says: be a space for people to practice their bicycling skills in a closed, safe setting.

This project is truly community driven, being led by community organizations, being next to a community center, and being in a community park. In fact, it’s even being community built. The second of two Mulhall Bike Park Build Days is this Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.(Facebook Event)  If you don’t know where the park is, you can find it on most mapping program and apps at 10900 Mulhall Street in El Monte.

A quick programming note…we’ll be wrapping up our 2017 schedule with a pair of “look ahead, look back” podcasts over the next couple of weeks. Currently, all the Streetsblogs are doing their end of the year fundraising drives.
