Dear Readers:

I owe you all a big apology for allowing my lazy nature to take over for the past 2 weeks and taking a long siesta from writing. I’ll try to make it up to you today with several posts.


On Tuesday evening, Rich Maine of the Caffe Racers, Dave Burrell of the AV High Desert Cyclists, and I went to the Final Community Workshop for Lancaster’s Master Plan of Bikeways and Trails which was held at Lancaster City Hall.

The final draft of the plan has been completed. In the next few weeks, City Staff will upload all 600+ pages of the plan to the City of Lancaster website for citizen review.
