Castroville Bike Bridge Grand Opening – Thursday, May 31 at 10am

A ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the new Castroville Pedestrian/Bicycle Railroad Overcrossing is this Thursday, May 31st at 10am.

Velo Club members have all been invited to the opening ceremony which will be held on the East side of the new bridge. Many of you have probably crossed those tracks dozens of times over the years so Thursday is your chance to bid them a fond farewell.

There is a group of us who are riding to the event that morning. We’ll be leaving promptly at 8:30 from the Monterey Wharf to ride the 16 miles to Castroville. Show up a few minutes early so we can leave on time.

The bridge won’t be open on our way out, so we’ll all get one last chance to “hike-a-bike” across the tracks. But we’ll pedal back in grand fashion as we cross the new bridge from high above. Be sure to proudly wear your Velo Club Monterey kit.
