The Ventura Bike Union gave the City Council and staff a sincere "thank you" at last week's Council meeting for continuing progress on the Bicycle Master Plan, including our new green lanes, bike/ped bridge connecting Community Park and restriping key corridors in Ventura -- Main Street, Thompson and Loma Vista.
