Group Ride to Support a Safer Hopkins

Saturday, January 21, 2023 - 12:00pm North Branch Library, 1170 The Alameda, Berkeley, CA 94707


While Berkeley City Council has approved adding protected bike lanes to Hopkins in two separate sessions, a group of opponents is trying to derail the final contract approval. They’re organizing to demand that pedestrians, cyclists, road safety, and climate action take a lesser role in the city’s priorities than preserving existing parking spaces and car priority.

On Saturday, January 21st at noon, meet at the Berkeley North Branch Library to join a bike ride in support of protected bike lanes. Our goal is to show support from cyclists of all ages and abilities—kids and families who bike to school, people who bike for fun, people who choose cycling to help fight climate change and make our city more livable.

We’ll show up at Gioia Pizza, helmets in hand, to show support for local businesses (and have some delicious pizza); we’ll ride the length of the project area and talk about the planned improvements; and we’ll rally to build community and make people aware that many across Berkeley want better support for active transportation. Please join—we hope to see you there! All ages welcome. (Write to for more information.)
