Program on Aging, Health, and Bicycling

By John Kaufmann | Saratoga Springs Politics

[JK: I received this from Ed Lindner of Bikeatoga]

Hi All:  Now that we're done digging out from the big snowstorm, we can go right back to thinking about getting out on our bikes and urging city officials to make Saratoga Springs a more bike-friendly community! 

One point that's often overlooked when we talk about building good quality sidewalks and bike lanes is that these investments in Complete Streets are an investment in public health - particularly for seniors.  As AARP says, "a bike-friendly community is an age-friendly community."  

If you're looking to stay healthy and active as you grow older, come join us for a free panel presentation at the Saratoga Springs Public Library on Wednesday, March 27th at 7:00 PM.

Our panelists:

· Jill VanKuren, CEO Saratoga Hospital

· Scott Clark, CEO Saratoga Regional YMCA

· Robyn Haberman, Associate State Director AARP New York

· Michael King, Transportation Planner. Owner, TrafficCalmer.com

We'll explore the resources available at Saratoga Hospital and the Saratoga Regional YMCA to support seniors who want to stay physically active and independent.  AARP representative Robyn Haberman will discuss how public investments in sidewalks and bike lanes can help make Saratoga Springs an “AARP Livable Community."  Mike King will talk about our city's Complete Streets plan and the things that we can do better.   

We hope to see you on March 27, 2024. The program will run from 7 to 8:45PM in the Harry Dutcher Community Room at the Saratoga Springs Public Library. - Ed
