To increase the number of safe cyclists with bikes meeting the state's night-riding requirements, the EBBC plans to give away and install bike lights at the August 4 screening of Ratatouille, a part of the waterfront summer movie series at Jack London Square. The EBBC encourages attendees to bike to the event so they can take advantage of the opportunity to equip their bikes for a safe, visible ride home that night after the screening. Secure bike parking will be provided at the event.
Golf legends Johnny Miller and Fred Bliss teamed up to design the course at Metropolitan Golf Links, and were rewarded with numerous accolades, such as the 2010 ELGA Chapter Award for Public Facilities from the GCSA of Northern California and Golf Digest. To achieve their links-style vision, the golf gurus incorporated the natural contours of the land and covered the terrain with omnipresent sand traps and modern turf hybrids. The result whisks golfers around a labyrinthine layout complete with straightaways, doglegs, and double doglegs, each made more difficult by heavy breezes that blow in from San Francisco Bay, which can disrupt shots and ground scorecard paper airplanes.
