Bicyclists of all ages will enjoy four city blocks of fun during the free Downtown Hayward Bike Festival and Cyclepath Vintage BMX Show and Street Jam from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 14.
More than a dozen organizations will participate in this second annual event, including a kids’ obstacle course by the CHP, safety and skills classes by Bike East Bay, free bike repair by Tri-Valley Bike Doctors, BMX trick riding exhibitions arranged by Cyclepath, live music, food and more. All of the events are free and some exhibitors will offer free bikes, helmets and equipment.

The Hayward Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has endorsed incumbents Elisa Marquez, Al Mendall and Francisco Zermeno along with Hayward planning commissioner and business owner Brian Schott for seats on the Hayward City Council in the June 2016 election.
The board emphasized its highest priority was to elect candidates committed to economic and community growth. The board’s vote came at its March 31 meeting and was based on recommendations of the chamber’s 16-member Government Relations Council of community and business leaders.
“The Government Relations Council spent two days in interviews with candidates,” said Kim Huggett, president and CEO of the chamber. “They recommended four with a vision for the future of Hayward, experience in public policy and economic development, and a history of leadership and coalition-building.”
