Skinner, Pelz will recount Davis bike lanes’ history

From page A2 | April 12, 2012 |

Former Davis Mayor Maynard Skinner and retired Public Works Director Dave Pelz will present a special “Tireside Chat” at 4 p.m. Sunday about the creation of Davis’ bicycle lanes. They’ll speak at the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, 303 Third St. Admission is free.

Skinner was part of the “pro-bike lane” slate of City Council candidates elected in 1966 following years of citizen bike lane petitions. He will recount the decision by the City Council to direct the Public Works Department to research the creation of bicycle lanes in several local test locations.

Pelz will review how he and his staff dealt with the challenges of creating specifications for bike lanes that had never officially been included on California roadways.

The pair will revisit all of the challenges leading up to the planning for and the creation of Davis’ first official bicycle lanes in 1967. The city of Davis is honoring the 45th anniversary of bike lanes in 2012.

The bicycle and pedestrian bridge that spans Interstate 80 was named after Pelz following his 37-year career with the city of Davis. Skinner served on the council during parts of four decades.

The U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame is in the southwest corner of Central Park, at Third and B streets. For more information, email Eventinfo@usbhof.org or visit www.usbhof.org.
