This activity is open to everyone, but participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and must wear a bicycle helmet as required by state law. If you do not have a working bicycle, contact Bike East Bay Advocacy Director Robert ([email protected]) to arrange for a loaner bike and helmet.

Most of the ride is along off-street paved trails, except for the half mile along 66th Avenue where we will be sharing the road with drivers past the 880 interchange. We will ride through together as a group to keep everyone safe and supported.

About the bay trail equity strategy

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission is partnering with Bike East bay to learn how the Bay Trail can be a place for everyone, of all ages and abilities. We invite you to offer your feedback during our MLK Regional Shoreline ride!

The MTC has developed a platform to center equity in its planning, investment, design, engagement, communications, marketing, evaluation and project delivery efforts. As a result, the Bay Trail Equity Strategy will help to inform all future work related to the Bay Trail.
