Covina Bicycle News
The City of Covina was recently awarded over $800,000 in funding for bicycle lanes on Citrus Avenue, Second Avenue, Badillo Street and Azusa Avenue in the 2011 MTA Call for Projects. The City also received funding from this grant for a second Bikestation in Downtown Covina. This money will be available to the City of Covina for construction in 2015 and will help to fill a missing segment of a regional bicycle lane that will one day connect the San Gabriel River Bike Path with the Pacific Electric Bicycle Trail in Claremont that leads to the Inland Empire city of Rialto.
Secure bike storage for Metrolink commuters.
