The final Tow your Tots event! The last two Wednesdays have been really beautiful days (in the middle of the rainy ones!)
Last week we had 6 join us! We’re getting bigger every time
Again the ride is mostly flat, takes under 30 minutes to bike from Mountain View Park to Patty’s Kitchen. If you haven’t gotten out on your bike yet, this is the perfect ride for you! Slow and easy, chatting along the way. Remember your helmets and trailer flags if you have them.
It’s been such a sucess for some of the Moms that we’re considering continuing past May.
Patty’s Kitchen is changing their 2 for 1 special day to Tuesdays so starting in June we’ll be riding to Patty’s on Tuesdays.
Also, if you are in need of a helmet and are financially unable to purchase one, Gritman Hospital has a program for free helmets for you!
If your little ones needs a helmet, on June ____ at the East-Side Marketplace you can get kids helmets for free at the Safety Event
Silent and live auctions and entertainment. Contact Nora Locken for more information.

Complete Streets is an effort to make streets safe and convenient for all users – pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. More info: http://www.completestreets.org/ and http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-584
The workshop will be held Thursday May 20 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. in the Moscow City Hall Chambers (2nd floor of City Hall).
- Learn about Safe Routes to School and how to develop Complete Streets that serve all users, including school children.
- Learn how community design and locations of schools can help create neighborhoods that reduce reliance on driving, are healthier for residents and offer more transportation choices for all users.
- Engage in the process of developing Complete Street policies by providing needed citizen input on the following elements of Complete Street policy:
- Share your vision for seamless, safe, integrated and connected transportation network for all Moscow citizens for all modes of transportation.
- Provide needed representation for all categories of transportation users – pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation riders, vehicle users, and persons of all ages and ability levels.
- Help identify barriers to safe, accessible, active travel in and around Moscow.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the third Tow your Tots event!
This week, (Wednesday May 12th) 4 of us biked from Moutainview Park to Patty’s Kitchen.
The weather was great, the trip was easy and even the kids enjoyed the ride!
We took these photos from Moutainview Park. If you haven’t been there, this gorgeous park is at the edge of town, if you head North on Moutainview Rd. the road turns a sharp right, then left and Mountainview park is on your left hand side.
Now all Patty’s needs is a huge bike rack for all us Moms when we arrive on Wednesdays!
Meet at NRS East parking lot (corner of Blaine St. and Troy Hwy). Stop for coffee at the Filling Station Cafe in Troy. 24 miles RT, about 3 hours.
