Cal Park Tunnel Opening

From EBBC:

There will be a ribbon cutting for the Cal Park Hill Tunnel, a key component of Marin’s North-South Greenway. This Class I path will provide a safe and flat route for bicyclists and strollers between San Rafael and Larkspur’s Ferry Landing along the future SMART rail corridor.

From SFBC:

Join SF Bicycle Coalition Board Member David Baker for a ride to Fairfax for the Cal Park Tunnel opening. Bring $$ for ferry & lights as most likely pedaling to ferry in the dark and should be back to SF by 6pm.
