After 8:00 am on Sunday - - no vehicles will be allowed inside. Once inside the venue, any cars parked inside will not be able to leave until after the last race of the day is over. There will be a loading zone near the venue gate for gear drop off/pick-ups.

There have been A LOT of car break-ins at PIR over the year. PLEASE do not leave valuables in your vehicle (or team tents overnight). Also, if you see anything suspicious, please alert the Cyclocross Crusade crew or an OBRA official immediately.

DO NOT RIDE YOUR BICYCLE IN THE PARKING LOT. You will get a flat due to the large number of goat heads!

Chip Timing Info.

 1. Bring your numbers from Bridge City and Washougal. If you did not pick up a number at one of those races you will need a new one.

 2. If you pre-register you will pick up your number bib, then proceed to the chip tent to pick up the chip that corresponds with your bib.

 3. You can register at the race. The waiver will be done via a computer on-site so a paper waiver is not needed. The process has been very smooth the last 2 races.

This from former Spokane Bicycle Advisory Board member and chair and Baddlands Member, and nowThe Washington State Department of Transportation has just released a draft of Part 2 of the state active transportation plan for public review and comment, available in an online open house.
These chapters provide a brief recap of the work completed in Part 1 (published May 2021) and highlight the performance metrics and strategies needed to move forward. The deadline for public comments is Friday, Oct. 29.
The online open house and a series of webinars provide opportunities to learn more about the draft of Part 2 and to provide comments.
Active Transportation Plan online open house information
  • When: Monday, Sept. 13, to midnight Friday, Oct. 29, 2021

Local and regional plan inventory: What's missing?

Your review of your community's plan links will help improve and complete this inventory. Go to the online open house, review the document, and check Appendix G. The comment survey form includes a space for you to provide additional plans that should be added or corrected links.
Active transportation safety report
WSDOT publishes an annual Active Transportation Safety Report in the Gray Notebook along with other performance analysis and reporting. The latest issue is now available online. The new phase of the state active transportation plan comes during a time when motor vehicle crashes resulting in the deaths of people walking or bicycling are occurring at a higher rate than the averages for 2010-2019. These fatal crashes made up 22% of all traffic deaths in the state in 2020.
Early in the pandemic walking and bicycling soared, and WSDOT's multimodal transportation dashboard continues to show higher use of active transportation than in 2019.
Thanks for your help spreading the word about the plan by forwarding this email or including a mention in social media (tag #WSDOTactive) and other spaces. Barb Chamberlain
