In recent months he has made good on that promise, along with supportive Commissioners like Amy Worth of Orinda. We have been part of discussions, along with our fellow advocates at the Marin County Bicycle Coalition, CalBike, Bay Trail and TRAC.
With the path will come a new protected path on the north shoulder of the freeway providing safe access to Point Molate, as well as the bridge, from Richmond. Completion of this path along with the approach from Richmond is currently estimated for 2017.
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 is now working with Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and other major stakeholders to ensure timely completion of the bike path to Yerba Buena Island and onward to San Francisco, as well as building a connection from West Oakland residential neighborhoods to the new East Span bike path.
