Signs Installed For New Countywide Bicycle Wayfinding Program

Press release from Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission:

Oct. 9, 2020

As part of the new Santa Cruz County Bicycle Route Signage Program, the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) recently completed the installation of bicycle wayfinding signage at 303 locations throughout the county. The signs, part of an effort to increase bicycle ridership and safety in the county, will assist all types of bicycle riders – commuters, families, recreational riders and visitors – in finding and accessing major destinations throughout the county. The revised routing of the long-distance Pacific Coast Route has also been signed.

Previously, there were few and inconsistent bicycle wayfinding signs in Santa Cruz County, so the RTC worked with community partners to identify and sign preferred routes that have connectivity to bicycle lanes or paths. The new signage will improve traffic safety by leading cyclists to better routes. The preferred routes include fully

Seattle’s Elephant Car Wash to shutter, sign to be saved

SEATTLE (AP) – Denny Triangle’s iconic pink elephant soon will have a new home.

The Elephant Car Wash on Battery Street near Denny Way will close permanently, the company announced in a news release Thursday, after rumors swirled surrounding a demolition permit for the site filed Wednesday.

The pink elephant sign – designed by Seattle’s “Queen of Neon,” Beatrice Haverfield – will be donated to the Museum of History and Industry in South Lake Union, which boasts an already-impressive collection of neon signage from other defunct and departed Seattle businesses, including the original Rainier Brewery ‘R,’ the 26-foot-tall Washington Natural Gas blue flame and many more.

In the post-World War II era when neon began adorning Seattle businesses, it “represented sophistication, a little bit of glamor,” MOHAI director Leonard Garfield told The Seattle Times. “Particularly after the war, Seattle was beginning to fill the role of a city on the

Three people in a stolen vehicle died after the driver sped away from police, officers pursued and the vehicle crashed in Minneapolis early Monday, according to police.

They were 13- to 16-years-old, relatives told local television stations.

Officers saw a vehicle, which was stolen with force during a carjacking Sunday morning, about 1:45 a.m. in the area of Dowling and Logan avenues.

They tried to pull the vehicle over, but “the driver attempted to elude the officers and fled at a high rate of speed,” police said in a statement. “During this pursuit, the suspect vehicle got substantially ahead of the pursuing squads.”

Officers saw the driver lose control of the vehicle about 2 miles away, in the area of Emerson and 18th avenues, and the vehicle rolled. Three people in the vehicle died in the single-vehicle crash.

Bicycle Crunch Proper Form: Here’s How to Nail It

When it comes to working the oblique muscles, trainers love turning to the bicycle crunch exercise. The variation of the OG crunch gets you bendy across your core, which leads to that satisfying soreness along your sides once you’re done. But if you’re not doing the bicycle crunch properly, your obliques aren’t going to benefit one bit.

To make sure that you’re not doing all of that crisscrossing for nothing, Nike master trainer Traci Copeland is spilling the most common mistakes she sees in bicycle crunch form (also known as “yogi bicycles,” she says). In this week’s episode of The Right Way, Well+Good’s YouTube series that dives into exercise move fundamentals, Copeland reveals the four major form mistakes that she sees people make in the staple core move, all of which sabotage your ab work.

How gas car phaseout boosts beyond-gasoline movement

Last month, Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered California’s Air Resources Board to issue regulations requiring all new cars to be emission-free by 2035. The order creates powerful opportunities to accelerate the transition beyond polluting gasoline. It communicates to automakers, the oil industry, and drivers that the gas-car era has an end date, and that further investment in it will not be profitable. It signals to utilities, landlords, and the private sector that investments in electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure will be rewarded with high utilization by many millions of EVs.

The directive builds momentum for other states to sunset sales of new gas cars. In Washington state, a bill was introduced this year requiring 100% of new cars to be electric by 2030, and a growing coalition of environmental, health, business, labor, and community organizations is supporting its passage in 2021. Hawaii and Massachusetts are considering similar bills, and each additional

Two LA County Nonprofits Get Grants for Community Transportation Assessments

Share this article:

Two nonprofits in El Monte and Pomona are recipients of $50,00 grants for community transportation needs assessments in those communities.

A total of 24 California nonprofits, local governments, transit agencies and Native American tribes in under-resourced communities were awarded up to $50,000 each by the Clean Mobility Options Voucher Pilot Program to conduct assessments that will help them to identify — and eventually address — transportation challenges.

The two grant recipients in the Southland are ActiveSGV, a project of Community Partners, which will assess transportation needs in El Monte and South El Monte, and CHERP-Locally Grown Power, a project of the Community Home Energy Retrofit Project licensed to produce solar panels in a nonprofit assembly factory in Pomona.

Garmany fled when Williams arrived on the scene and was found hiding in a dark corner before making a gesture with his right hand, in which Garmany was holding a dark-colored cellphone.

Electric bicycle sales are higher than ever, but it’s created a new problem

While the COVID-19 pandemic shook the world and the e-bike industry with it, the pandemic also led to a huge surge in electric bicycle sales.

Nearly every company that offered electric bicycles soon found themselves with empty shelves and warehouses.

Between people being at home with more time on their hands, riders exiting lockdowns and itching to spend more time outdoors, and commuters looking for socially distant ways to get to work while avoiding public transportation, e-bike sales have never been higher.

But now that’s created a new problem in the industry: supporting all of those customers.

Large e-bike companies who count their customer base in the thousands and tens of thousands were already tasked with managing a carefully orchestrated customer service balance.

But now those systems have been pushed past the breaking point as countless new riders receive bike boxes at their doorstep, a small portion of which inevitably
