Bridge the Bay Fundraiser a huge success

EBBC Board Member Fast Freddie Rodriguez and
Executive Director Renee Rivera


This past rainy Thursday night the David Brower Center in Berkeley was filled with elected officials, bike racers, everyday cyclists, recreational riders, transportation consultants and people of all ages, mingling, enjoying good food and drink and competing for great deals on bikes, tours and bike art. Everyone had one thing in common and that is the vision of a Bay Bridge with a world-class bikeway the length of the bridge, connecting our East Bay communities with jobs and destinations in San Francisco.

The East Bay Bicycle Coalition would like to send out a great big bike-friendly Thank You to all who came out to our February 24th Bridge the Bay Fundraiser to build support for a continuous path on the Bay Bridge connecting Oakland and San Francisco.

Oakland–There’s an unspoken camaraderie among cyclists who cross the San Francisco Bay. Some depend on a combination of public transit and bikeways. Some pedal from shore to shore. Bridge commuting, similar to cyclocross racing, involves hoisting bikes up and down stairs, or on and off buses. Transitioning from trails and bikeways to frontage roads and surface streets, cyclists negotiate swiftly changing terrain, sometimes on foot and sometimes in the saddle. Fresh air fetishists, rule-bending pathfinders, all-terrain trailblazers, explorers, navigators, they are everything that SUVs claim to be, but are not.
