  • Wednesday  Higher Targets for Reducing Emissions from Driving. The California Air Resources Board is exploring higher targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from driving. Achieving the desired 18 percent per-capita reductions means planning for growth closer to transit and a further shift in investment toward non-automobile travel modes.

  • Thursday Oakland Bicyclist and Pedestrian Advisory Commission.

  • Thursday  Wildlife of Tamalpais at the Marin Museum of Bicycling.

Meet Janet Klein (MMWD) Lisette Arellano (One Tam) and Gina Farr (Project Coyote) and find out. These three presenters will share updates about One Tam’s work to study and support wildlife, insights from the Wildlife Camera project, and tips on living alongside coyotes and our other wild neighbors.

  • Saturday Girls Riding Club New Year’s Ride. Rides are for 4th to 9th graders and this one will wind through the Presidio following a trail of clues, puzzles, games, crafts, and even a mad lib. The club will provide bikes (and helmets, if needed) for all riders. Girls Riding Club (GRC) started in 2015 to get more girls riding and exploring by bike. It’s a chance to meet other enthusiastic bikers and have a good time. Saturday, Jan. 20, 10-2 p.m., Presidio Community YMCA Letterman Gym, 1152 Gorgas Ave. Please RSVP to by Wednesday, Jan. 17.
  • Sunday Community Cruise: Protected Lanes.
