Fairfield residents are invited to join a “library to library” bike tour trial route ride Sunday, April 19th, 2015 at 2 pm starting at Sherman Green. Hosted by the Fairfield Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee, the bike tour also kicks off the town’s Earth Day Celebration culminating April 25th at Fairfield Warde High School. The cycling tour is part of the Committee’s efforts to add more designated bike routes linking Fairfield residential neighborhoods to town business centers.
The tour is approximately 8.5 miles round trip linking the main Fairfield Public Library on Old Post Road to the Fairfield Woods Branch Library on Fairfield Woods Road. Cyclists will gather at the Sherman Green Gazebo at 2 pm on Sunday, April 19, to hear brief remarks on the route and an update on progress implementing the town’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan before the tour officially starts.
Participants will receive a map, turn directions and a one page survey form to help evaluate the proposed bike route’s features. Refreshments will be served at the end of the ride at Sherman Green. In the event of bad weather, the tour will be rescheduled for Sunday, April 26 at 2 pm.
Approved bike helmets are required on the tour, and participating cyclists must be 14 or older.
