Bike Lanes for Downtown Walnut Creek

Sign our petition in support of bike lanes on California Blvd, Mt. Diablo Blvd, and Olympic Blvd

Sent every two weeks with info about rides, parties, and local bike advocacy.
Walnut Creek is planning new bikeways and pedestrian improvements on several key streets and Bike East Bay is working with Bike Walnut Creek to ensure great bikeways are included.

As part of the West Downtown Area Plan, Walnut Creek is redesigning California Blvd, Mt. Diablo Blvd, and Olympic Blvd, and all three streets can include comfortable, low-stress bikeways that are protected from traffic.

In addition, Walnut Creek is working with the County and with Lafayette, to study a pathway connection between the Iron Horse Trail and the Lafayette-Moraga Trail. We are pushing for a modern two-way cycle track to be included as part of this project.
