THREE TWO-WHEELERS Bicyclist Dirk Spits, center, passed through Arcata Monday, Dec. 9 during his “99% Ride,” a journey from Alaska to Argentina.
The purpose of the ride is fundraising for philanthropic projects throughout Central and South America. While pausing on the Plaza for a photo, who should happen along, separately and coincidentally, but two of Arcata’s most dedicated bicyclists!
Melanie Williams, left, is chair of the Transportation Safety Committee and teaches bicycle safety, while Bob Ornelas, right, is always biking hither and yon for good causes, most notably his annual AIDS Lifecycle Ride.
