As part of the the OCTA BikeShare program and the Habitat for Humanity of Orange County Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, residents from the Woodcrest neighborhood in south Fullerton will host the Woodcrest Bike Ride on July 25. The ride will begin at 10 a.m. and will take riders from the Fullerton Train Station to the Fullerton Arboretum.
Using bikes provided by the OCTA BikeShare program, ten residents will tour the city of Fullerton using Wilshire Blvd. and Acacia Ave. as a way to access the city in a more efficient way while also getting healthy. The Woodcrest neighborhood residents hope this program motivates local residents to get involved in the healthy achiever challenge, which challenges participants to get healthy.
The event, marks another step forward in the Habitat for Humanity of Orange County Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative which is a collaborative, grassroots effort to improve the Woodcrest neighborhood by altering the physical and social surroundings. In the past year, the neighborhood has come together to organize a community cleanup, revitalize three homes, form a resident leadership group, launch a healthy achiever challenge, perform a neighborhood survey, and create an emergency preparedness plan.
