Tired of Driving Places You’d Rather Bicycle or Walk to?
Jason Patton, Oakland’s Bicycle & Pedestrian program manager, will describe new pedestrian and non-auto alternatives in Rockridge, including Alcatraz Avenue bike lanes and Alcatraz pedestrian crossings, the College Avenue bike sharrows*, BART station bike parking improvements ($100,000 from the City’s Fourth Bore settlement), proposed Keith Avenue bike lanes, the status of Broadway bike lanes, and Safe Routes to Schools grant improvements.
* A shared-lane marking, or sharrow, is a symbol placed in the center of a travel lane to indicate its shared use by bicycles and autos.
How Safe is Cycling, Anyway?
The East Bay Bicycle Coalition (EBBC) has answers.
The coalition works for safe, convenient and enjoyable bicycling for all people in the east bay. Dave Campbell, EBBC Program Director, will tell us about his organization’s riding and safety programs and provide some perspective on Rockridge bicycle improvements, those proposed and those possible.
