Bike East Bay needs you to attend Berkeley’s City Council meeting on March 15.
Mayor Tom Bates has stepped up and will ask Berkeley City Council to support striping a Fulton Street bike lane by Bike to Work Day, May 12. Councilmember Jesse Arreguin is co-sponsoring this proposal. Come show your support and be part of a wake up call to the City of Berkeley to start building a network of protected bike lanes to keep residents safe.
When: Tuesday, March 15, 7:00pm
Where: Berkeley Unified School District Board Room 1231 Addison St at Bonar
Why: To call for Fulton Street bike lanes to be comleted by May 12 and to show the City of Berkeley that long delays in completing bike lanes is no longer acceptable, especially when these delays endanger bicyclists.
