San Carlos weekend bike loop plan begins Saturday

in Community/Featured/Headline

San Carlos is set to launch its weekend-only bike loop plan on Saturday that aims to promote exercise while providing an alternative means to travel downtown.

The bike loop will run along streets including Cherry, Elm, St. Francis, and Cedar with intermediate connections to Arroyo, Brittan, and Howard, according to the city. The loops will connect to downtown, where the 600 and 700 blocks of Laurel Street are now temporarily closed to vehicular traffic to allow for extended outdoor dining and shopping.

While streets in the bike loop will continue to be open to vehicular traffic, street signage and changeable message boards situated along the route will notify community of the Bike Loop’s availability and advise motorists to share the road, the city said.

The bike loops will continue every Saturday and Sunday through the end of December. Additional bike racks will be available downtown.
