Thank you to everyone who contributed to making May a great Bike Month. We started strong at the Lodi City Council Meeting announcing our three Bike Friendly Business Award recipients (Flight Lounge Woodbridge, Kirsten Company and LangeTwins Family Winery and Vineyard) and accepting the Mayor's proclamation. We kicked off the bike valet season at the Downtown Street Faire, Farmers Market, and Zinfest. We then finished on a high note with close to 50 people attending our Bike to Work Day. Huge "thank you's" to Mary Pell, Anita Herman, Kandy Vaccarezza, Julia Tyack from Lodi Public Works and Kari McNickle from Dibs/SJBC. Your hard work paid off and the morning was a success.
Here's the scoop: Thursday, May 24, 2018 the City of Lodi, San Joaquin Council of Governments Dibs, and Bike Lodi are partnering to host Bike to Work Day. We’ll be in the pedestrian walkway adjacent to Woolworth Plaza (115 South School Street) from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. School House Grounds is generously donating coffee to go with home-baked goods and snacks. This event is open to all, so ride on by before school or work.
Lodi Farmer's Market
Leave your car at home and hop on your bicycle! Head down to the Lodi Farmer's Market on Thursday evenings and park your bike at the FREE Bike Lodi Valet located on the corner of Oak Street and School Street.
Bike Lodi had the privilege and honor to receive the Proclamation for Bike Month and Bike to Work Day from the City of Lodi at tonight's City Council Meeting. We were also able to honor the first three businesses with the Bike Lodi Bike Friendly Business Awards. Please join us in congratulating Flight Lounge Woodbridge, LangeTwins Family Winery and Vineyards and Kirsten Company, LLC. Each of these companies has provided support, encouragement, and commitment to our cycling community. We look forward to continuing to work with them to make Lodi an Exceptional Cycling Community.
