    The City of Fresno has announced plans for this year’s “Bike Through History,” which will be held on Saturday, Nov. 8, from 9 a.m. to noon. The event will feature a 6-mile round-trip ride along Huntington Boulevard and down through the South Van Ness Industrial District.

    Bike Through History is co-sponsored by the City of Fresno, Fresno County Bicycle Coalition, the Cal Alumni Group of Fresno and the Valley Air District.

    The ride will begin at the 1894 Old Fresno Water Tower (HP#001/National Register of Historic Places), 2444 Fresno Street. From the Water Tower groups of 20 will be led on a route which will include stops at several historic buildings. Stops along the way include a tour of the first home constructed on Huntington Boulevard, the Dr. Oliver Howard Home (1914), a brief tour through the offices of the Fresno Brewing Company (1907), a photo op at the Van Ness Gate Entrance (1925) and a final stop and optional walking tour at several buildings at “Five Corners” (Cherry and Los Angeles). Volunteer docents and/or property owners will be available at each location to give a brief history of the site.

    The ride is intended for participants 10 and up (with 16 and under accompanied by a parent). Children in bike trailers are ok. Participants need to have a bike in good working condition and a helmet. The event is free, but pre-registration is strongly encouraged.

    For more information or to volunteer for the event, please contact Karana Hattersley-Drayton, the City of Fresno’s Historic Preservation Project Manager, at 621-8520.
