In support of the cycling community in the Santa Clarita Valley, the city is launching a bike safety campaign, to remind all vehicles to share the road and be aware of their surroundings to avoid collisions.
The newly formed Santa Clarita Valley Bicycle Coalition, the local chapter of the Los Angeles County Coalition, supports safer conditions for cyclists in the SCV and is supporting the city's 11th annual Bike to Work Day Challenge on Thursday.
Santa Clarita is serving as a host city for two stages of the 2014 Amgen Tour of California, and several major road closures are planned beginning on Thursday and ending Saturday, city of Santa Clarita officials announced.
In less than a month, the Amgen Tour of California will ride into the Santa Clarita Valley. In the week leading up to the race, the city has several family-friendly cycling events planned, including a community bike ride and the annual Bike to Work Day.
