Party on the PET / CRB in May...

Yes, May. I am giving plenty of notice. May is a big month for cycling events in these parts. We don't go quite as far as Santa Barbara with their annual cycleMAYnia, even so there are plenty of fun events. The Amgen Tour of California will make a local stop again this year, with racers competing along a route between Ontario and Mt. Baldy on May 19. The l'etape du California will again cover the same route as the professional racers, three weeks earlier, April 28. May is Bike to Work month, and you can expect to see the Bike Pit Stop at the depot again this year. New for this year will be a special celebration of the Pacific Electric Trail/Citrus Regional Bikeway. Planning is still in the beginning stages, but the City of Rancho Cucamonga will be hosting an event on May 12; Claremont will be doing likewise. Whether the other cities along the PET step up and do likewise remains to be seen. Montclair? Upland? Fontana? Rialto? Come on. Fill in the gaps and make it one big linear bike riding party.

Look for more information as the event draws closer. Just think, people from points further west can ride Metrolink into Claremont, disembark at the depot, ride the PET (some 50 miles round trip end to end) and take the train back home. Just something to think about.
