Bike To Work
August 28, 2008 · Updated 10:12 AM
Mayor Dennis Kendall and City Councilmember John Soriano led a group of bicycling citizens and city employees to the Bike to Work Day Celebration Station in Comeford Park. Their 7:30 a.m. ride on Bike to Work Day Friday, May 18 started from the Marysville Library. The event was part of a countywide and nationwide effort to promote more bicycling as a safe and healthy way to commute to and from work. More than 500 people participated in Bike to Work Day across Snohomish County last year. Marysville stepped up its participation this year in light of the ongoing Marysville Healthy Communities Project that is promoting a more walkable, bikeable Marysville, encouraging healthier eating with the focus on fruits and vegetables, and creating more low-cost and no-cost recreational opportunities. The Celebration Station was co-sponsored by Naval Station Everett, Marysville Parks and Recreation, and Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop. Community Transit is the lead agency of Bike to Work in Snohomish County, and Mayor Kendall is Vice-President on the CT Board of Directors.
