Berkeley Measure M Workshop: Repave Bikeways!

May 2, 2013 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Public workshop May 2

We have a great opportunity to get Berkeley pothole-ridden bikeways repaved and in the process encourage more people to take up bike commuting. With Bike to Work Day coming up May 9, now is the time to take advantage of the demand for better bike facilities in Berkeley. There are many bicycle boulevards in need of repaving, including Milvia St south of Blake, 9th St north of Allston, California in many spots, Heinz/Russell too. Please come to this informational workshop and show your support for prioritizing bikeways in how Berkeley spends its new repaving monies of Measure M.

If you can’t make this meeting, there will be two more workshops this Summer. We also encourage you to contact:


and let them know you want them to support repaving bikeways with Berkeley’s Measure M $$$. Thanks for your involvement.

What Do You Think of a Two-Way Cycle Track Around Cal Campus

What Do You Think of a Two-Way Cycle Track Around Cal Campus

SafeTREC has released the Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Strategies for UC Berkeley Campus and Periphery, a report that suggests the start of a two-way cycle track around the UC Berkeley campus, amongst other good improvements for bicycling and walking. We think it is a good idea-in fact, we first suggested it!

Two-way cycle tracks (also known as protected bike lanes, separated bikeways, and on-street bike paths) are physically separated cycle tracks that allow bicycle movement in both directions on one side of the road-in this case the campus side of Oxford St and Bancroft Way.  A two-way cycle track may be configured as a protected cycle track at street level with a parking lane or other barrier between the cycle track and the motor vehicle travel lane and/or as a raised cycle track to provide vertical separation from the adjacent motor vehicle lane.
