Bicycling enthusiast extraordinaire Mari Lynch's helping promote an exciting event coming to Salinas soon.
There's been five successful Ciclovías in Los Angeles -- they call it CicLAvias down there, just to be cute -- and everyone reports they're way fun. Basically, people get together to ride their bikes among city streets to make them safer and promote better communities and neighborhoods.
There's already a Bike Party, so Ciclovia sounds like a natural next step. And organizers are looking for a youth intern! Deadline to apply is June 15.
The first Ciclovía Salinas is tentatively scheduled for August 25, 2013. For more information or an application, click here.
