Bike Bakersfield Celebrates 10 Years

Bike Bakersfield says it’s going to lobby the city and Kern County for more bicycle paths over the next 10 years.

Executive director Jason Cater says the group has accomplished a lot during its first decade, including helping out with pair of bicycle path master plans.

“One with the county of Kern, the other with city of Bakersfield – we’ve helped get over 40 miles of bicycle infrastructure installed in our community,” he said.

About 100 people celebrated the group’s 10th anniversary during a fundraiser dinner at the Bakersfield Museum of Art on Thursday.
