Ride highlights bicycle awareness along MacArthur



Vancouver Heights — Nearly 50 cyclists, joined by Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt, rode in a pack April 21 along MacArthur Boulevard to raise awareness of concerns that upcoming roadwork may make the thoroughfare more dangerous for bike traffic. The “Tour de Mac” was organized by Vancouver Bike Club member Jan Verrinder and local cycling advocate Madeleine von Laue. They and others are worried summer resurfacing and restriping work on MacArthur will remove dedicated bike lanes.
