A Year Since Bike Trails Ribbon Cutting (and Snow), There Are Now 30 Miles of Bike Routes in Big Bear Valley (and No Snow Expected This Memorial Day Weekend)

It was a year ago, on the eve of last Memorial Day weekend, that we received about an inch of snow in the Big Bear Valley, but the chilly temperatures didn’t discourage 111 cyclists, who participated in the Bike Ride for Ryan Hall that the Lighthouse Project and the Big Bear Valley Trails Coalition had planned to follow the official ribbon cutting for the new bike trails within Big Bear Lake. A year later, there are now 30 miles of Class 3 bike routes within the Big Bear Valley—and we can expect better biking weather this Memorial Day weekend, as sunny skies and temperatures in the high 60s are expected. The Big Bear Valley Trails Coalition has, also, in the last year, developed bike trails maps, which are available free of charge from a number of locations throughout Big Bear, including the Visitor Center on Bartlett Road, the Big Bear Discovery Center on the North Shore, and the studios of KBHR Radio in the airport terminal building in Big Bear City.

Though the snow had melted by the Saturday morning ride, cyclists bundled up for the Bike Ride for Ryan on May 24, 2008. All 111 who rode logged their miles in support of local Olympian Ryan Hall as part of the Move A Million Miles for Ryan Hall campaign prior to his Olympic marathon debut. (He placed 10th! "Run Ryan Run.")
