Berkeley Bikeways

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

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.

Your 130+ emails to City Council and almost 30 speakers staying through the night in support on May 2 are what made the difference.
