Berkeley Bikeways

Petition your support to make Berkeley’s the best bike plan in America.  

Sent every two weeks with info about rides, parties, and local bike advocacy.
Berkeley is nearing completion of a major update to its Bicycle Plan and there are still many ways for you to get involved and help us hold Berkeley to its promise to have the best bicycle plan in the nation.

New Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin stated on Bike to Work Day 2016 that “every bike lane in Berkeley should be like Fulton Street’s new protected bike lane.” We agree. Berkeley’s draft bicycle plan includes twenty protected bike lanes, 9 protected intersections downtown, new bicycle boulevards, and many new HAWK bike traffic signals at boulevard crossings of busy streets. The bike plan goes to Council in late March 2017 for approval.
