It was a Bad Day for RSR Bridge Advocates

RSR Bridge and Ferry

Public access by ferry over the Bay was severed soon after dedication of the Richmond San Rafael Bridge in 1957. Now Caltrans is blocking a plan to continue the Bay Trail across the RSR Bridge.

In an unexpected maneuver, Caltrans rejected the preferred proposal to accommodate bicyclists, along with a third traffic lane, on the RSR Bridge at the February 13, 2008 Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) meeting.

New Year's Day on Diablo

What could be a better start to the New Year than to join the traditional ride up Mt Diablo? There really is no single organized ride. Weather permitting, there will be hundreds of friends representing all East Bay bicycling organizations at the summit. Pick a good partner to chat with during the climb, and bring plenty of protection for the chilly descent. Beware that State Park police ticket bicyclists for speeding.

I-80 San Pablo Dam Road Interchange Project (AKA "I-80 Bikeway)

The signed I-80 Bikeway extends from near El Cerrito del Norte BART to Rodeo. However, there is no legal way for southbound bicyclists to make a left turn from San Pablo Dam Rd onto Amador Street. For over a decade EBBC members have spoken out in support of improving this critical gap. Now you can share your opinions on the proposed improvement plans!
