Bridging the Bay

Sign our petition in support of completing a bike lane across the Bay Bridge:

Sent every two weeks with info about rides, parties, and local bike advocacy.
The Alexander Zuckermann Bicycle & Pedestrian Path is open to Yerba Buena Island and over to Treasure Island. This milestone achievement for bike advocacy was achieved with support from thousands. However, our work is only half done. Regional Measure 3 has funds for Bay Trail projects and could fund final design costs for the West Span Path.

Richmond San Rafael Bridge

In recent months, the Executive Director of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission Steve Heminger has made good on his promise, along with supportive Commissioners like Amy Worth of Orinda, to open the Richmond San Rafael Bridge for bicycling. We have been part of discussions, along with our fellow advocates at the Marin County Bicycle Coalition, CalBike, Bay Trail and Trails for Richmond Action Committee (TRAC).

With the path will come a new protected bikeway on the north shoulder of the freeway providing safe access from Castro Street to Point Molate, as well as on the bridge, from Richmond to Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Marin. Completion of this path along with the approach from Richmond is currently estimated for October 2019. Sign up for updates on the bike path, ferry service, and connecting bikeways.

The Bay Bridge

The Bay Bridge is one of the most well known symbols of the East Bay. And now, you can bike on it. Named after Bike East Bay’s founder, Alexander Zuckermann, the Bay Bridge bike path is a beautiful ride. 

Since it’s been built, thousands of people have enjoyed walking and bicycling on the popular bike path extending from West Oakland. Bike East Bay has worked with Caltrans, Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), and the San Francisco County Transportation Authority to ensure timely completion of the bike path to Yerba Buena Island and safety improvements on the island. We also are working with these agencies on designs for the Bay Bridge West Span Pathway, as well as building a connection from West Oakland residential neighborhoods to the new East Span bike path.
