Connect Telegraph Avenue

Sign up for Connect Telegraph updates!

Sent every two weeks with info about rides, parties, and local bike advocacy.
We have a vision for Telegraph Avenue: a safe, comfortable and continuous protected bikeway.

Telegraph is already a major bike route, and protected bikeways on Telegraph will invite and encourage even more people of all ages and backgrounds to visit local businesses, commute to work and school, visit friends, and enjoy all Oakland has to offer.

We are organizing to extend protected bike lanes and improve pedestrian safety north through Temescal, creating a continuous bikeway from Downtown to 57th Street.

Oakland City Council approved bike lanes all the way from downtown to 57th Street as part of the Telegraph Avenue Complete Streets Plan, and it’s our task now to make sure those bike lanes are what the community asked for–physically protected. For this, we need to rally voices of support and make sure we’re hearing any concerns from local businesses and neighborhoods along Telegraph.

Before the city repaves Telegraph in 2019, our outreach team will build relationships with business owners, attend neighborhood meetings, talk to people on the street, and distribute information. Volunteer your time and energy to make this fast-paced campaign a success. Sign up for volunteer updates and we will keep you posted on opportunities throughout the year.
