From page A6 | May 07, 2014 |

Rep. Mike Thompson, D-St. Helena, will lead a cycling infrastructure fact-finding tour to Davis on Saturday, hosted by the Napa County Bicycle Coalition.

The study tour aims to show participants “the benefits that first-rate bicycle facilities provide for the Davis community,” said Mike Costanzo, executive director of the coalition.

Representatives from the business, travel, real estate, health and education sectors will share their insights into how Davis’ bike lanes, paths and other safety amenities have improved the community.

The visitors will start with a bike forum in the Community Chambers at City Hall, then take a bike/bus tour of Davis’ bicycle infrastructure before walking to the Davis Farmers Market for lunch and a tour of the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame.

Local elected officials who will greet the delegation and participate in the tour include state Sen. Lois Wolk, Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, Mayor Joe Krovoza and Mayor Pro Tem Dan Wolk. On the Napa side, the delegation includes all members of the Napa County Board of Supervisors; the mayors of Calistoga, St. Helena, Yountville, Napa and American Canyon; and many Napa City Council members.

Other participants are Clay Gregory and Allison Simpson of Visit Napa Valley, Chuck McMinn of the Napa Valley Vine Trail Coalition, Karen Smith of the Napa County Health Department and Kate Miller of the Napa County Transportation and Planning Agency.

The event is being coordinated by Dave “DK” Kemp, Davis’ active transportation coordinator, and Costanzo.

    Davis had more people riding when it had less bike-specific infrastructure. Anyone remember the bike traffic jams from 1975-'85? The car parking lots (no parking towers) sat nearly empty while we fought for spaces to legally park our bikes. Of course we also had zero-tolerance traffic law enforcement (by cops who lived in town) and no tuition at the university, which brought fewer lazy offspring of wealthy people to campus.

    The Unitrans bus service, which all undergraduates are forced to buy a pass every quarter, takes a lot of 18-25 year olds who could very easily bicycle to campus off of their bikes and onto the bus. I live one-half mile from campus (on the B route). I see young college kids waiting at the bus stops along Sycamore for a ride to campus which they paid for with that bus pass which they were forced to buy.
