Telegraph Ave bikeway

Telegraph Ave bikeway

Alexia Underwood nails it when she reports in Oakland North about her initial bicycle commute on Telegraph Ave as follows, “the experience was more harrowing than I had expected (See: Lanesplitting). She concluded, “maybe I should do a little more investigating before taking the city’s bike route maps at face value.”

Rad Massaker Alleycat

What is Rad Massaker Alleycat?

Well, the 2009 Rad Massaker Alleycat is a bicycle race/fundraiser for Cycles of Change.

An “Alleycat” is a race in which participants are given a list of checkpoints spread across the city at the start and must determine the best route on their own as opposed to following a set course. Originated by bike messengers in the 1980's, alleycats are meant to simulate the types of daily challenges they faced on the job.

Starting line at:
Mosswood Park

Save Your Bus! Take AC Transit's Survey

Save Your Bus! Take AC Transit's Survey

Like other public transit agencies, AC Transit is undergoing severe budget problems. With the elimination of state assistance for operations like salaries, maintenance, and gas they are looking at 15% service cuts just to stay afloat. They are asking riders to take a short survey to help them prioritize routes and to decide how and where to cut. This survey was also given out at the recent series of community meetings on service reductions.

Montgomery at John

Assigned to:Unassigned
Created:girlwithglasses at May 23, 2009 - 7:48am
Status: (other / Priority major)
Case ID:: -3387


pothole or pavement cracks




Travelling downhill (southwest) on Montgomery, there is a hidden dip in the road about 10 meters from the junction with John. If you go over it at low speed, it will jolt you out of your saddle; if you are lucky enough to hit it at a higher speed, it will send you flying over the handlebars. It isn't visible as you are cycling along as the road surface looks uniform; it was probably caused by a heavy truck going over a weak patch in the road and making a depression in the surface that wasn't deep enough to turn into a pothole, but was deep enough to be a danger to cyclists.
