Working for The Bike Campaign and Bike Garage has been very rewarding. I’ve gotten to know Maria Contreras Tebbutt, learned lots about the benefits of biking and worked on projects that are making a difference in Yolo County.
The most recent project we’ve completed is the Davis Transportation Guide and Bike Map. There’s nothing else in town quite like it. The guide side, that I designed with the help of Maria and Russell Reagan, is a compilation of some of the most important information that will make biking more appealing for UCD students, Davis residents and visitors, and the map side, that was created by Russell, was designed specifically with bicyclists in mind.
The guide emphasizes how convenient biking can be as a primary mode of transportation. Why drive when there are trains and buses that can transport you and your bike? Why own a vehicle when the corners of town and even Yolo county can be reached by more environmentally friendly transportation?
The guide also offers help for those unfamiliar with urban biking. One can find tips and explanations that cover some of the most common predicaments bicyclists will encounter, and the guide helps bikers learn more about The Davis Bike Loop and what other resources are available to become a more avid bicyclist.
