The Sitka Cycling Club’s monthly bike ride for July takes place at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 27.

Cyclists should meet at the Sitka Farmers Market, which runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at the Alaska Native Brotherhood Founders Hall (235 Katlian Street). Cyclists will pedal about eight miles to the Blue Lake rest area, take a break, then ride back downtown for a 16-mile round trip.

The Sitka Local Foods Network farm stand at the Sitka Farmers Market is a new member of the Bicycle Benefits program, so people who ride their bikes to the market and show their Bicycle Benefits helmet stickers at the SLFN farm stand receive a 20 percent discount on fresh, local produce.

The Sitka Cycling Club (formerly known as the Sitka Bicycle Friendly Community Coalition) will hold its monthly meeting from noon to 1 p.m. on Friday, July 19, at the Fisheye Organic Café. This meeting is open to all interested folks.

The monthly meeting is open to everyone interested in making Sitka an even better town for cyclists of all ages. Topics include brainstorming ideas on how to grow our Sitka Cycling Club; a discussion about what we can do to make Sitka more bicycle friendly (such as the installation of a new FixIt bike repair station downtown in August, donated to Sitka by CRW Engineering Group of Anchorage); a discussion of monthly club bike rides later this summer; a discussion of the inaugural Sitka Half-Century (a 50-mile bike ride on Aug. 24); the launch of a bike co-op/school; and other topics. Also, don’t forget the Fisheye Organic Café is one of the Bicycle Benefits business in Sitka, so ride your bike and bring your helmet into the restaurant to get a 20-percent discount.

For more information, call Doug Osborne at 747-0373 or Holly Marban at 966-8938.
