Bike for Life/Paradise Creek Bikes parade entry

Groups registered for the parade received a confirmation call this afternoon, with a special request: parade participants are asked to NOT wear a Santa costume.

Parade organizers want just the one and only official Santa to be the special feature in the parade to delight the children.

Check-in for the parade is at 6:00 in front of CJ’s (112 N. Main St.). The parade coordinator will be able to tell us our entry number and gathering location along Main Street.

The parade begins promptly at 7:00.

Be a Greenway Captain! Sign up by April 17th

Moscow’s Active Living Task Force is recruiting captains to help lead teams of community members on a round-trip walk on Saturday morning, April 21 to evaluate a proposed route for Moscow’s first Neighborhood Greenway.  Neighborhood greenways are streets with low traffic volume and speed where bicycles, pedestrians, and neighbors are given priority. Captains need to attend a training session at 4:00pm on April 19th which will included assessing one of the three legs of the proposed routes.  If you are interested in being a team captain, please contact Assistant to the City Supervisor Jen Pfiffner by April 17th (jpfiffner@ci.moscow.id.us, 208.883.7123).

Got studs?

Is bicycling a seasonal sport? Depends on who you ask. Here’s some excellent winter bike reading: http://www.bicyclinglife.com/Recreation/wintercycling.htm and http://www.icebike.org/ Another benefit is that the racks around town and on campus are nearly empty!
