Bike the Boulevard Today at Noon
“Bicycling has a way of bringing more vibrancy to a city,” Beryl Forman aka Miss Boulevard, marketing manager for the El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association, told the Reader in February. “When you see a bunch of bikes in front of a business, it’s attractive, and it draws people in.”
Forman has organized several Bike the Boulevard rides since the beginning of this year, spotlighting the Boulevard’s thriving arts, music, and businesses. Get to know San Diego’s slice of old U.S. Route 80, which once connected the west coast to Savannah, Georgia, and was the site of the 1960 El Cajon Boulevard Riot.
Highlights from Today’s ride include a free BBQ, a stop at the new Tiger! Tiger! Tavern, and a happy hour with free pizza at Luigi’s.
