    Advocacy Alert! Upcoming meeting of the Friends of the Pacific Electric Trail

    WHO: interested cyclists, walkers, equestrians, and other trail advocates
    WHAT: Meeting of the Friends of the Pacific Electric Trail
    WHEN: Thursday, December 1, 2005 at 6 PM
    WHERE: The Goldy S. Lewis Community Center, 11200 Baseline Road, Rancho Cucamonga
    Map to event: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=11200+...&iwloc=A&hl=en
    WHY: get involved with a critical trail advocacy project

    Background Information:
    This is a rail-trail conversion project currently underway that will stretch from Claremont to Rialto along the old Pacific Electric Railway line. The purpose of the trail is to provide recreational opportunities for cyclists, pedestrians, runners and equestrians. Trail users would enjoy exercise, convenient access to jobs, public facilities and shopping, while exploring the history and culture of the area.

    When complete this will form an important transportation link for bicycle users in the Inland Empire. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help shape the way our community will look in 5, 10, 20 years. Rail Trails are good for our community, our health, economy, and our our environment. Your help is needed to make this dream a reality!

    For more information on this project, please see: http://www.ci.rancho-cucamonga.ca.us/govt/pet.htm

    Good heads up for a worthy cause. Bit more info here also: http://www.socaltrailriders.org/foru...opic.php?t=783

    I think the idea is awesome. It'll be a good chance for a lot of people to get introduced to riding an easy trail, which will hopefully spark a passion like we all have!

    A website has been created for this project to keep everyone up to speed. Pretty sparse now but I'll have more info up soon.

    The city of Rancho Cucamonga is close to putting the section between Haven and Archibald out for bid, so we may see some progress soon. Exciting news!

    Please visit the website for info on the next meeting and get involved.
