Breaking News! 

We received a communication from Councilmember Mike Karbassi who is requesting that the previously scheduled Day of Remembrance press conference at noon at City Hall be changed to Woodward Park in order to announce major changes that will be brought about due to recent pedestrian and bicycle deaths there.

The Day of Remembrance commemoration will now be held on Thursday February 10, 2022 at the Friant Rd and Ft. Washington Rd entrance to Woodward Park at 12:30 pm instead. Due to changes in the time and location, the ride to City Hall with police escort has been canceled.

Instead, two rides are planned, the regular Fresno Cycling Club" Tuesday-Thursday Ride" lead by Ken Herrington from Herndon and Armstrong in Clovis at 9 am, and another from Manchester Center at 11 am.

The 11 AM Manchester Center Ride will be lead by Fresno Cycling Club President Dennis Ball from the Manchester Transit Center (Blackstone just north of Shields, in the former Sears parking lot) to Woodward Park for the 12:30 pm event. A Fresno Cycling Club ride waiver is available for non-FCC members to complete if you wish to be covered for the event:  https://fresnocycling.com/event-3347389

The resolution to commemorate the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims at the City of Fresno Council Meeting on Thursday February 10, 2022 is now scheduled for 9:10 am in Council Chambers.

Scheduled Speakers include:

Mike Karbassi

Aly Geller, Vision Zero Engagement Manager

Destiny Rodriguez, City of Fresno BPAC 

Susan Smith, City of Fresno BPAC member, representing members of the Moore Family
