rideshareThe employees of Caltrans District 5 will host a complimentary “bike breakfast” on May 7 beginning at 7 a.m. for local residents who stop by on their way to work or school on a bike.

This event will take place as part of May’s Bike Month, a countywide series of events organized by San Luis Obispo Regional Rideshare. The Bike Breakfast is intended to feed, energize and encourage those who arrive by bike.

Bicycling is a fun, healthy, zero-polluting form of transportation that can reduce the cost of maintaining our state highway system. To learn more about Bike Month events visit: Rideshare. Caltrans wishes to thank Rideshare for sponsoring this bike breakfast.

When: Tuesday, May 7, 2013 from 7 am to 9 am.

Where: Caltrans District 5 Office, 50 Higuera Street, San Luis Obispo.

I bet their pancakes were overdone and lumpy…

Nobody is going to take their kids on some so called bike path on any road when all you have is a white painted line separating you from a 5000 pound car driven by a texting teenage girl. More people would bike if they had more Bob Jones bike paths connecting the local cities. Otherwise, a bike utopia is just a pipe dream and waste of tax payer effort.

I could understand the promo as well, if just a fraction of our state roads had bike lanes or even a shoulder.

Take a drive out the beautiful Hiway 58 sometime and image yourself peddling along and along comes a semi truck hauling materials out to the solar plants while swerving a bit through the curves. Where are you going to wind up? In the weeds or barbed wire fence…

Cal Trans needs to stop wasting time, and probably overtime, and just fix the roads

I find this to be a disingenuous publicity stunt. Cal trans is largely funded by our gas taxes and they are still behind in keeping with the risk growing on our State Highways. If they were to get more funding through the use of bicycles I’d understand the promo but the bicycles, although I agree a good personal choice, do not fund Caltrans and are a great liability to vehicular traffic as well as the highly competative Caltrans budget.
