    The Orinda Traffic Safety Advisory Committee and Orinda City Council sponsored Orinda’s first bicycle safety education program on May 11 on the blacktop at Wagner Ranch Elementary School. The fun-filled event, open to children and their parents, was taught by Bike East Bay and came on the heels of Bike to Work Day.
