Traffic Safety Coalition launches "I GIVE 3 FT" safety campaign.
   
California’s new bike-passing law takes effect Tuesday, Sept. 16 and is designed to reduce car-versus-bicycle crashes.  It also provides a way for law enforcement to enforce safe passing.
   
When the new law takes effect, violators will face a $35 base fine, ($233 when penalty assessments are added). If there is a collision, the base fine goes up
to $220 ($959 with assessments.) Where a violation results in a collision that injures a bicyclist, the law provides a way for law enforcement to cite the driver for unsafe passing.  Bicyclists are still urged to use caution at all times while riding on any roadway with or without bike lanes.

Walk Yourself Fit has helped me transform my life

By ERIN WALDNER


I started walking with Walk Yourself Fit last summer. I had put on a lot of weight over the previous year. I was hoping WYF would help me lose weight, plus I was looking for more things to do outside of work. 

 

I've gotten everything I hoped to get out of WYF, and more. I have made some awesome new friends. It's something fun to do away from the office. And it's helped me shed weight. I've lost roughly 70 pounds and have gone from a size 20/22 to a size 10/12 (give or take).

 

Walking briskly on a regular basis is a big reason for this weight loss. I walk with WYF almost every Saturday. I rarely miss a Saturday. In addition, I meet with two other ladies from WYF (Tina Kundig and Rose Cummings) before work. On average, I'd say we meet 3 times a week and walk 5 miles each time, or close to it. We walk pretty fast. And when I walk on my own, I try to do some hill work. Center Street, San Mateo, Cajon and Terracina are good for that.

 

In addition to walking, I do cardio workouts at the gym and have started bike riding. I like having variety in my exercise regimen because I think I'm working different muscles and it breaks up the monotony of doing the same thing, day after day.

 

Because of the weight loss and because I'm more physically fit, my self esteem has gone up. I hated the way I looked a year ago. But more importantly, a lot of the health problems I was experiencing have gone away or eased up. My lower back no longer hurts. The plantar fasciitis I was dealing with has disappeared. And I feel better emotionally.

 

In a nutshell, WYF has helped me transform my life and I am forever grateful.

RYF has introducing a new program for our regular bi-weekly Saturday rides.  The 10 mile routes are orientation rides lead by Dr. Steve Wilson. These orientation rides are open to all riders who wish to ride a slow, easy pace, those who are all new and or inexperienced riders, those who have new bikes that are not familiar with shifting or any other operation of the bike, those wishing to learn group and street riding skills, bicycling etiquette, and those who are starting a conditioning program.  All riders are welcome no matter what type of bike or riding gear that have.  Helmets are mandatory for all riders.  For those more experienced riders who wish to ride a shorter route at a social/touring pace, a 15+ route has been added to each of our bi-weekly rides. 



That's right people, a bike kitchen in the IE. For those of you that don't know what a bike kitchen is:  The Redlands Bike BBQ (Kitchen) is a space where you can learn to work on your own bike. It is entirely FREE, organized by volunteers and meant to help encourage sharing cycling related knowledge, skills, and tools between people in the community.

We can be found at our permanent space behind Augies Coffee Shop (off Redlands Blvd.) and weekly at the Redlands Market Night (near Ed Hales Park). We are open Tues-Thurs 6-8pm and Sat 12-3pm.

Donations are always welcomed. We are looking for anything bike related.
