Big Bear Valley Trails Coalition

February 26th, 2008

Big Bear Valley Trails Coalition logo 2I’m excited to have been asked to serve on the Big Bear Valley Trails Coalition and look forward to helping develop and promote responsible use of our Valley’s incredible trails. The Coalition benefits from a variety of stakeholder members, including the City of Big Bear Lake, the County of San Bernardino, the US Forest Service, Caltrans, and SANBAG. Current successes include 26 new “Share the Road” signs around the Valley, an updated bike route system within the City of Big Bear Lake, and a cross-city bike route in the East end of the Valley. To the right is a little logo I designed for the Coalition.

Moving a Million Miles for Ryan Hall

Ryan HallBig Bear’s Lighthouse Project has launched a community spirit initiative, “Move A Million Miles for Ryan Hall,” which challenges the community surrounding Big Bear Lake, California to get up and out, and “move a million miles” between now and Big-Bear-native Ryan Hall’s August 24 marathon race date in Beijing, China during the 2008 Summer Olympic games. I’ve been helping out with the campaign, and even had a chance to meet and run with Ryan and his wife Sara. Support the campaign and report your miles here.
