If you haven’t heard, there’s a class being offered at Harvey Mudd College called Bicycle Revolution, in which students ride to surrounding communities and explore the challenges and successes of creating bike-friendly cities.
Last Friday the Pomona Valley Bicycle Coalition had the pleasure of leading the Bicycle Revolution class from the Claremont Colleges down to Pomona. John Trendler of PVBC lead Professor Paul Steinberg and students west along Bonita, down Cambridge, across Vassar, down San Antonio and across 1st street where they met for discussion at Diamond Plaza (once known as Thomas Plaza).
The class was treated to engaging conversations about cycling in Pomona with Brad Johnson of the City of Pomona’s Development & Neighborhood Services Department, Officer Eric Hamilton of the Pomona Police Department who serves as the Bicycle Patrol Coordinator, Shelby Rusu of Western University of Health Sciences, local cyclist Francis Casteneda of Go Getter Delivery, Corey McCroskey of Coates Cyclery, and John from PVBC. After some question and answer time it was rime to get back in the saddle. On the return trip the class pedaled up Palomares St. and past Lincoln Park before cutting across San Bernadino Ave and up San Antonio.
It was a great day & we at PVBC look forward to working with educators, organizations and the public to help make cycling safer and more enjoyable in our region, thanks Professor Steinberg for the opportunity!
