MayorMimMcConnellLeadsGroupOutOfParkAbout 50-75 Sitka residents participated in the Sitka Community Bike Ride and Cookout held Saturday, May 23, as part of Sitka’s National Bike Month festivities and was co-hosted by the Sitka Conservation Society and the Sitka Bicycle Friendly Community Coalition.

The festivities started with free bike mechanic checks, then reflective safety vests were distributed and Mayor Mim McConnell led cyclists on a short bike parade from the Crescent Harbor Shelter to Sitka National Historical Park and back (due to police staffing issues, our route was changed from the original plan to ride through downtown on Lincoln Street).

After giving out some prizes for the best decorated bikes, the cyclists then headed out to Halibut Point Recreation Area State Park for a cookout of rockfish, hot dogs and veggie burgers. Scenes from the Sitka Community Bike Ride and Cookout are in the slideshow below.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Sitka Community Bike Ride and Cookout is the perfect way to celebrate the spring and National Bike Month in May.

Join us on Saturday, May 23, outside of Harrigan Centennial Hall as we host a short kid-friendly bike parade through downtown starting at 3 p.m. (get there early for quick bike tune-up and for contest judging for the best decorated bikes). After our parade through downtown and some contest awards at Harrigan Centennial Hall, we’ll bike out to Halibut Point Recreation Area starting at 3:45 p.m. for a cookout about 4:30 p.m.

Our bike maintenance specialists will be available to assist cyclists from 1:30-3 p.m. outside Harrigan Centennial Hall. They will be able to check chains, brakes, tire pressure and other minor maintenance needs.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAt the cookout we will have hamburgers, hot dogs, fish, and other items to grill, but feel free to bring other food to share in case we have a big crowd. We held a community bike ride a few years ago that had about 300-350 cyclists, so let’s see if we can top that crowd.

Since we will be on busy city streets for this event, we encourage everybody to wear helmets and bright clothing for safety reasons. All cyclists should ride on the right side of the road (with traffic) and ride in a predictable manner. We ask drivers to be aware there will be a lot of cyclists out on May 23 and to please slow down and give them a safe space to ride. Thanks.

SAFETY ASSESSMENT: Top photo: Sitka Parks and Recreation Manager Lynne Brandon, left, and Paul Wistrand of the Federal Highway Authority’s Juneau office, second from left, get set to lead a group of cyclists down Halibut Point Road on Thursday, May 7. The tour was part of a safety assessment conducted through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s “Safer People, Safer Streets” initiative. U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx mandated federal, state and local communities do walking and cycling safety assessments, and Wistrand said they chose Sitka for Alaska’s first safety assessments. In addition to the cycling safety assessment, walking tours were held from downtown to the Alaska Raptor Center on Thursday and along Katlian Street on Wednesday, May 6.
