The Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition has completed the third phase of its efforts to create secure bike parking within the basin.

The coalition, with the help of a grant from Tahoe Fund and matching contributions from local businesses, purchased and installed 100 bike racks in high-priority spots near town centers and also added a bike repair station this summer, offering parking for 200 bikes.

In total, the coalition and Tahoe Fund have teamed to provide access to 450 bike racks at outdoor recreation locations, area businesses and community hotspots all around the lake since 2018, offering secure parking for up to 900 bikes.

“The bike coalition has consistently heard from members and supporters that the lack of bike racks is a barrier to getting people to make more trips by bike,” said Chris Mertens, Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition board member.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Hundreds of people who took to the streets of Louisville on Saturday ran to churches and other indoor spaces as curfew fell across the city on the fourth night of nationwide protests after a grand jury did not indict three police officers directly connected to Breonna Taylor’s death.

Smaller demonstrations also cropped up in Worcester, Massachusetts; Greenville, South Carolina; Poughkeepsie, New York; Akron, Ohio; and Daytona Beach, Florida. In Bristol, Pennsylvania, several dozen people held a candlelight vigil on the banks of the Delaware River.
