Input Needed on Oak Grove Bike Lanes
The Oak Grove bicycle lanes trial period is coming to an end and the City needs your feedback on next steps. The bike lane improvements were installed in September 2017 as part of a one-year trial period. The City is currently conducting an end-trial data analysis to make recommendations to the City Council on whether to install the treatments permanently, make any modifications to the trial design or convert the street segments back to their original layouts. Responses in the end-trial survey are anonymous and will help the City make informed recommendations. The  survey  is available through May 18, 2018

Bike to Work Day 2018
On Thursday May 10, 2018 nearly 100,000 of regular and first-time Bay Area residents biked to work for the 24th Annual Bike to Work Day, part of  National Bike Month . Most riders stopped to pick up treats and this year’s tote bag at one of 400 energizer stations staffed with dedicated volunteers from bike coalitions, local companies and governments.
