Bike to the Movies at Alameda Theater

Andrew Casteel —

BikeAlameda welcomes the Alameda Theater to the growing list of Bike to Work Day supporters. On Sunday, May 16, the Alameda Theater teams up with BikeAlameda to create Bike To The Movies Day. Residents biking to the Alameda Theater to see any show starting between 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. can purchase a matinee ticket for $6.00. rather than the regular $7.75 admission. Iron Man 2 starts on May 7 so this is a great opportunity to see a first run movie at a great price.

As part of National Bike to Work Week, the local cycling group Bike Alameda has worked with local officials so that one traffic lane on the Fruitvale Miller-Sweeney Bridge will be reserved for riders on Thursday Bike to Work Day, during peak commuting hours. In addition, bikers can take advantage of free tuneups, refreshments, valet parking, discounts on movie tickets, cocktails and other treats around the Island as part of Bike to Work Week — starting Saturday.

Jump on Those Bicycles

Andrew Casteel —

In the next few weeks, Bay Area residents will be encouraged to get outside, hop on a bike and ride. There are plenty of benefits for those who choose to take the challenge. Alameda students started their Bike to School Week yesterday. Adults can participate in a Bike to Work Day next Thursday, May 13. Alamedans working in Oakland can join the celebration at Frank Ogawa Plaza next to Oakland City Hall. A pancake breakfast starts at 7 a.m., and a press conference at the event will feature local elected officials and a prize raffle at 8:30 a.m.

iBikeChallenge GPS coordintate gaps.

My usual ride is about 8.9 miles each way. The app logged 7.
When I looked at the log there were clearly GPS coordinate gaps (drop outs) toward the end of my ride. I was on the bay trail in Richmond with a clear view of the sky and it functioned perfectly to and from work yesterday.

My battery was about 20% when I finished the ride, could the alert at this interval screw up the app??

The time was accurate.

Just giving some feedback.

Please make this site easier to use.

Every person in the office has had trouble figuring out how to log their hours.

Some ideas......

Change "Create a riding log" to "Log Your Mileage" or something easier to identify, which takes you to a team page where you can view your mileage subtotals, team totals.....etc....

Also finding your team is a challenge as they are not listed alphabetically. I finally did a "search" and that worked.
