Yes, I’m still working on a guidebook – so in the meantime – here’s some news. Click the hyperlinks (bold and underlined text) to travel to those place.
Road at Doran Beach is done! This is terrific even though we won’t need it for the walk on November 16th. Click for the Parks page on that walk. Check the Regional Parks Calendar for other events.
If you’re interested in the Southeast Greenway (that open space that was almost a freeway), go to their newsletter for an update. The State has formally decided not to build a freeway. (After all these years!!) Click on to SE Greenway.
Hopefully, you know how popular (and fun) walking is. Groups are forming everywhere. There’s Walk San Francisco, kind of a save-the-pedestrian effort – not an easy task if you’ve heard the news lately.
As an article reports on the SFGate site, San Francisco ranked number two nationally (NYC was #1) in walkability. Of course, Ms. Gobets, the article’s author, indicates that a recent study shows 3 pedestrians a day are hit by vehicles. To check on 2,500 cities + neighborhoods go to Walk Score. They also rank cities on bike-friendly and transit-friendly.
My new favorite group is Walk Sitka. Who knew? But they won designation as a bronze-level Walk Friendly Communities. a national organization. They are active walkers and advocates for walking.
Do you know about Meet Ups? There’s a very active walking group in Santa Rosa. Click on Senior Walkabouters. Saturday one group is going to Gerstle Cove and one is joining a walk in the Laguna. Monday some are walking along the Santa Rosa Creek while others walk the Golden Gate Bridge and Crissy Field. And next Friday, it’s camping at Pinnacles National Park. There has to be some place for you to go.
