Let’s Celebrate Ellen Fletcher Together!
This year, Bike Palo Alto includes a community celebration at Fletcher Middle School honoring Ellen Fletcher, Palo Alto’s venerable bicycle advocate and City Councilwoman. Ellen’s efforts to make Palo Alto more bike-friendly paved the way (literally and figuratively) for so many of today’s students to choose to bike to school. Bike Palo Alto participants who wish to join the celebration can take the short detour marked on the Red Route.
At 2:30 there will be an informal gathering time in Fletcher’s triangle area with a few student-friendly displays about Ellen’s life. From 3:00 to 3:15 pm there will be an official welcome followed by brief remarks from dignitaries and people who knew Ellen.
