Help Design the Best Ever Bike Lanes on Telegraph, 14th St, & Park Blvd. Kick Off Campaign Workshop Wednesday Jan 30 Your volunteer help is needed with three important outreach campaigns to get bike lanes built on major corridors in Oakland in 2013. Oakland has become one of the most popular cities in America for bicycling and the City needs to keep up with this exploding demand for safer bikeways. You and your friends should not have to fight traffic every time you want to bike for your everyday trips. On 3 key bike routes, Oakland is considering removing travel lanes to make room for new bike lanes. We want to make sure they design the type of comfortable, attractive bikeway you deserve. The streets are:
- Telegraph Ave, downtown to 51st St
- 14th St, Brush St (at 990) to Oak St
- Park Blvd, 18th St up to Leimert
Bike lanes on these three streets will link the neighborhoods of North Oakland, West Oakland and Central Oakland to Downtown and encourage many more people to trying bicycling. We expect opposition to the removal of travel lanes on these streets and that is why your help is critical. Members like you help us build the necessary support to convince City Council to move forward and make it safe for you to ride into and out of Downtown.
