Eleven East Bay Schools Ready to Build $5.7 Million in Safe Routes to School Projects

Eleven East Bay Schools Ready to Build $5.7 Million in Safe Routes to School Projects

We are happy to report that the California Department of Transportation has awarded 11 Safe Routes to School grants to schools in the East Bay. Is your kid’s school on the list below? A total of $5.7 million in funds have been awarded in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. These projects include new bikeways on Farm Bureau Rd in Concord, Canal Rd in Pittsburg and Blacow Rd in Fremont. Alameda County schools in particular did well to receive so many grants, which is a testimony to the great work of Transform, Cycles of Change, and our supportive local cities and their staff to get more kids walking and bicycling to school. Good habits start early! On Bike to School Day this past May, bicycling rates to many schools tripled, and the numbers are only growing. It’s is great to see cities working hard to keep up with this surging demand. It is also encouraging to know that thanks to our successful advocacy work, the regional Safe Routes to School Program is intact and fully funded for the next 4 years. We are also working to ensure that the State does not take any of these monies in the future for other roadway projects. Your help may be needed for this. Stay tuned.

Berkeley REI presentation: One Family’s Cross-Country Ride of Passage by Bike

August 9, 2012 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Five years ago Matt Biers-Ariel and his family set out on a physical rite/ride of passage, a cross country cycling trip to celebrate computer game-loving son Yonah’s 13th birthday, after he refused to have a bar mitzvah.

Berkeley’s rocky relationship between paving and bikes

When Israeli neuroscientist Shlomo Bentin died after a bicycle accident last Friday, many of the commenters on Berkeleyside were convinced they knew the culprit: the poor state of the pavement on Bancroft Way. “The pavement quality going down Bancroft is in absolutely atrocious condition,” wrote one commenter. “The reason this could have a bearing on this accident is that cyclists often must deviate from an ideal line in order to avoid htting a huge crater, pothole or logitudinal fissure thereby forcing them to swerve more into the line of traffic.”

Progress! Berkeley Transportation Commission Backs Hearst Avenue Bikeway Project

July 19, 2012 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm

Thanks to one of the largest showings of our members and supporters seen in years, the proposed new bike lanes and road diet on Hearst Avenue received strong backing from the Berkeley Transportation Commission at Thursday’s meeting. 31 supportive EBBC members and volunteers, local residents, and staff and students of UC Berkeley in attendance all supported the project and want to see it implemented as soon as possible. So do we! And so do hundreds of other concerned people who signed our petition and sent emails to the City in support. Thanks everyone for rallying around this great project.

Next, the lead design firm of Fehr & Peers will finalize the traffic analysis and prepare the project for final approval by City Council, which we hope will occur in early 2013. The timing is good as Berkeley will soon be discussing which projects to fund for the One Bay Area Grant Program, and this project would be perfect. In addition, when voters approve Measure B this November 6, there will be sufficient money to fully implement the project. So, remind your friends who ride to vote for Measure B if they want to see more green bike lanes and advance stop boxes like the ones part of the Hearst Avenue Bikeway.
