Strengthen the Alameda County Climate Action Plan

The Alameda County Climate Action Plan will come up for final adoption at the board of supervisors meeting next Tuesday (Dec. 21) at 2pm. According to the planning department, there has been very little support from the environmental, bicycle, transportation or green building community at recent meetings, resulting in significant weakening of key staff recommendations by the real estate, chamber of commerce and building industry who have been attending the meetings.

Here comes the rain...but you can still bike!


As part of our 1000 New Cyclists campaign, the Bicycle Coalition hosted its first Winter Riding workshop at Mike’s Bikes in Berkeley on Thursday, November 18th. Sandwich donation from La Note allowed us all to go into the clinic with full stomachs - thanks, La Note! The group was treated to a great presentation on safety and tips for riding at night/in the rain from one of our League of American Bicyclists certified instructors, and then Jonas Jackel of Mike’s Bikes spoke to the group about proper gear and dressing appropriately to ride both after dark and in wet weather. We’re planning on having some more of these clinics during the coming winter months, so please stay tuned!

For more tips on biking during the upcoming winter months, check out the Oakland North article, featuring an interview with EBBC Outreach Organizer Rebecca Stievater.
