By choosing to walk, bike, carpool, or take public transit on September 21, you will see how easy it is to use alternative transportation and how enjoyable it is to minimize traffic congestion.

WHY:   To raise awareness of the need to reduce traffic congestion and create a greener environment.

CAR FREE SFV RIDE AND REFRESH, A FAMILY-FRIENDLY BIKE RIDE (hosted by the LA County Bike Coalition):

Time: 10:00 A.M.

Place: Orange Line Bus Station at 6060 Van Nuys Blvd.

Ride Description: A 10 mile ride along the Orange Line Bike Path from Van Nuys Blvd. to Balboa Park.  We’ll take a loop around the park, stop at the R/C airplanes and miniature airport.  The ride will finish at MacLeod’s Ale Brewing Company, the first microbrewery in the San Fernando Valley.  We’ll get a tour of the Brewery, and LA County Bike Coalition members showing their membership card get 15% off drinks and merchandise.
