    Hello Joe,

    Just wondering if you had heard that Metrolink is planning service work/maintenance on the Antelope Valley line which runs through Santa Clarita up through to Lancaster this Sunday — when CicLAvia is happening. Santa Clarita Valley Bicycle Coalition was planning on bringing a group of riders on Metrolink. The substitute is obviously not going to work — which is to use the Bus system to get over the Newhall pass into the valley on their way to downtown. Why are the north county residents being left out of participating in this event with the exception if they decide to drive to the event? The sustainable decision is not an option due to poor planning on behalf of Metrolink? What kind of maintenance/service work is being done this weekend? Seems like a good topic for a special article — since the impact is large and unnecessary — move the service/maintenance back a week?

    Anyways, any help or thoughts that you may have to offer (or get by seeking information) would be great for those residents who want to travel sustainably by Metrolink to and from the event. Thank you and have a great day.
