Due to Caltrans delays, the bike/pedestrian path will not be finished by October 2nd. Thus the bike/walk previously planned from the Big Lots parking lot to Turtle Bay has been cancelled. However, all Bike Rodeo events will still take place in the Big Lots parking lot off Hilltop Drive as planned. In the parking lot, check out the Caltrans booth and take part in the Bicycle Rodeo, featuring helmet fitting, a bicycle safety check, obstacle course, and much more.

Walk This Way at Turtle Bay’s majors sponsors include Mercy Medical Center Redding, Shasta County Public Health, The McConnell Foundation and Turtle Bay Exploration Park.
