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.
New protected bike lanes are open on Hearst Avenue and Bancroft Way, with thousands enjoying them every day. Next up is Dana Street south of campus and Milvia Street downtown.

Berkeley set a standard when it dedicated two blocks of protected bike lanes on Fulton Street in 2016. Their 2017 innovative bike plan received much push back because it includes the public’s vision for better bicycling in Berkeley, a vision not shared by everyone. But this forward-looking plan is our basis for pushing for modern bikeways on streets such as Adeline, Hopkins, Oxford, Claremont, San Pablo Avenue and more.
