Basementeer Spotlight: Bike East Bay


ABOUT BIKE EAST BAY

Founded nearly 50 years ago, Bike East Bay promotes healthy, sustainable communities by making bicycling safe, fun, and accessible. With the support of their members, Bike East Bay advocates, organizes, and pushes the East Bay towards a safer, more sustainable future.


We achieve our mission in three core ways:

ADVOCACY

They support the development of an extensive and seamless network of bike facilities as part of a transportation system that serves people of all ages and abilities. Bike East Bay builds partnerships with groups and residents organizing around social justice and other community issues, including displacement, disinvestment, and health disparities, and cultivate a community-driven transportation planning process. See their recent campaigns!

EDUCATION

Their Bike Education program works to remove barriers to bicycling through programs that empower and educate East Bay residents. They work to provide abundant free and accessible bicycle education programs throughout the East Bay, including in-language and non-language specific materials and programming. Learn more about their free online and in-person classes.

COMMUNITY  EVENTS

Through strong, positive, collaborative relationships, Bike East Bay builds a collective and powerful voice for a more just and equitable transportation system. Their members, volunteers, community partners and staff keep the pedal-powered movement rolling forward.
