There will be LIMITED ACCESS TO TECHSHOP MENLO PARK on Sunday, July 22nd from 6 AM to 7 PM due to a bicycle race near TechShop Menlo Park.
We will be open for business, but some special access rules to the Bohannon Industrial Park area will be necessary for the day. The organizers will be working hard to minimize the impact to TechShop members during the race period. This is not a TechShop event, but your access to TechShop Menlo Park is impacted due to the race.
Please note the following details regarding access:
Road closures: INDEPENDENCE DRIVE, Jefferson Drive and Constitution Drive WILL BE CLOSED TO VEHICLES, but pedestrian access is open; these are the roads used to access TechShop Menlo Park. Course marshals and motorcycle police will be stationed around the course to direct vehicles that need to be on the course to enter or exit our parking lot. They will bring cars onto the course immediately after the pack has ridden by -- only when it is safe to do so -- which means it may take several minutes to get to the TechShop Menlo Park parking lot. You will be able to park in designated areas near Chilco.
For the safety of the racers, please follow the directions of the police and course marshals.
Parking: The Menlo Park Police Department encourage drivers to park outside the course boundaries, in a designated event parking area.
Please remember that on-street parking is not allowed at all during the event, and any vehicles parked on the street will be towed.
