Berkeley Bikeways

Petition your support to make Berkeley’s the best bike plan in America.  

Sent every two weeks with info about rides, parties, and local bike advocacy.
Berkeley has completed a major update to its Bicycle Plan and now its time to get new bikeways into repaving projects.

Berkeley approved an innovative new bike plan on May 2 and is currently busy building two new bikeways that are high priorities in that plan–Hearst Avenue and Bancroft Way. Thanks to our effective advocacy, Berkeley will get to work next year on Milvia Street, the highest priority bikeway of the plan. Your 130+ emails to City Council and almost 30 speakers staying through the night in support on May 2 are what made the difference.
