“Mostly sunny” is forecast for this Saturday’s Bay Trail opening for the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge and its approaches. Please see the attached invitation for details on the ribbon-cutting event at a Bay front bluff a little way up Stenmark Drive from the I-580 exit. Arriving by bike or on foot is encouraged due to limited parking on site (https://mtc.ca.gov/sites/default/files/RSR_BikePath_RibbonCutting_Invitation_v5.pdf). The trailhead at Castro St. & Tewksbury Avenue is 1.3 miles from the site.
Whether coming on foot or by bicycle, car or public transit, be sure to CLICK HERE for a detailed access map and information on trail distances and points of access on foot, bicycle and public transit. (http://www.pointrichmond.com/baytrail/pointsanpablo.htm)
If coming by bicycle, CLICK HERE for detailed instructions on riding to the RSR Bridge Bay Trail from Richmond BART station (https://bikeeastbay.org/news/getting-bridge). This has the bonus of allowing you to check out the Richmond Greenway and sparkling new cycle tracks just installed by the City of Richmond to connect the Greenway with Point Richmond and the RSR Bridge. Consider accepting Bike East Bay’s invitation to join them in riding from Richmond BART to the opening day ribbon-cutting, especially if you coming from points afar such as Alameda, San Francisco or eastern Contra Costa counties (https://bikeeastbay.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=1554).
Please share the attached invitation with your family and friends via email, social media and perhaps even handing them a printed a copy.
