The city of Santa Clarita has launched a new website, BikeSantaClarita.com, to provide cyclists of all experience levels with information about area trails, trail classification, biking events, rider safety, and more in one convenient location.

The site was designed to be a comprehensive resource featuring cycling news, a clickable map with trails, news about upcoming biking events, and ways to get more involved with Santa Clarita’s biking community.

“Santa Clarita is one of Southern California’s most bike friendly communities,” said Mayor Frank Ferry. “On any given day it is common to see groups of people out enjoying a ride, families on our trails, and even residents biking to and from work. We’ve worked hard to develop a system of trails that connects our neighborhoods and we’ll continue to expand our bike and trail offerings in the coming years.”

Santa Clarita offers cyclists more than 70 miles of on and off street bike trails and bike lanes. These are part of the city’s Healthy Santa Clarita campaign, which is spearheaded by the Santa Clarita City Council and designed to promote outdoor sports and recreation for the benefit of residents of all ages.

The BikeSantaClarita.com website complements HikeSantaClarita.com, which was launched earlier this year and provides information about hiking trails, open space areas featuring trails, hiking events, safety tips and hiking news.

For more information about the city of Santa Clarita’s BikeSantaClarita.com website, contact Mark Patti with the City’s Environmental Services Division at (661) 286-4173.

    On the flat and vast areas of the Central Valley floor, it would appear that not much is in the way of the proposed train route - only the lives and property of some folks who may have worked years or even generations to have a home, business, farm or ranch make a small profit so that maybe, just maybe, their children will have it a little bit better than they had it.

    The Santa Clarita City Council will conduct a public hearing Tuesday on the proposed Laemmle Theatre project and the accompanying mixed-use development and parking structure in Old Town Newhall. The city and its former redevelopment agency purchased the square block at the southeast corner of Lyons Avenue and Main Street in 2008 for the purpose of redeveloping it with a theater, which had been in the council-approved plans for Newhall since 2005. Finally in 2013, the city solicited bids, and in July 2015, after hearing unanimous public testimony in support, the council voted to open exclusive negotiations with Laemmle and its developer partner.
