Get on your bikes and ride! David Clement

Hey Rose Parkians- Get on your bikes and ride! Let’s show our Rose Park team spirit and join our Belmont Hts and Alamitos Hts neighbors as we cruise the Vista Bike Blvd. and experience biking on 6th Street before work begins on the newest LBC Bike boulevard… 6th St.

We will ride 6 miles round trip through historic districts, including Rose Park South.  Plan on the event taking approximately 75 minutes. View future locations of round-abouts with bicycling enthusiast Allan Crawford and BIKEable Communities.
Also, we will enjoy interesting commentary from local leaders.
Thanks and see you either May 31 or June 28… Or both!
Meet at 6 p.m. at Marine Stadium Farmer’s Market.

It’s in the Grunion, it must be true!

After 3 years of community meetings, FB posts, discussions and crossed fingers the City of Long Beach will have its 6th Street Bike Boulevard, a 2.5 mile stretch from Bellflower Boulevard (CSULB) to Junipero Ave (Retro Row). Traveling through 3 great neighborhoods: Alamitos Heights, Belmont Heights and Rose Park South cyclists will be offered traffic calming at 12 intersections “traffic circles” plus other measures. Residents groups have already met to provide input on the landscaping and other elements of these needed neighborhood embellishments.

Stay tuned to this space for construction dates, related events and other 6th Street Boulevard info. RPNA thanks all who came out to provide input and considerations, and the huge effort by David Clement to keep this on our and the city’s radar.
