What? Praise from Gil Cedillo? It was April Fool’s Day. IMG_20150401_102707

The official unveiling of our city’s first Great Streets program comes tomorrow, but that didn’t stop infrastructure enthusiasts from getting a sneak peak.

Bikes for Bender had their 35 or 50 mile ride taking you from Pioneertown up the gravely roads up the San Bernardino Mountains:
