13 neighbors want bike lanes down Claremont Ave in Oakland.

Many weekday mornings I see a woman who bikes with her two small children on the back of her bike up Claremont Ave to drop off her children at John Muir Elementary School near the intersection of Ashby Ave and Claremont Ave. I love seeing them, but am concerned about their safety. The automobile traffic moves quickly on this street which was originally designed for trolley cars.

Bike lanes would help make them safer, and open up the possibility for more families to cycle with their children to school.

Measure BB is a better version of 2012’s Measure B1, and retains a 4-fold increase in bike/ped funding in every city and unincorporated area of the County. Measure BB will build a connected network of safe and comfortable bikeways in your town, allowing you to ride safely and comfortably from your home to work, to school, to shopping centers and other important destinations, without worrying about cars. We like to think the BB’s are for ‘Better Bicycling’ but they also are for ‘Better BART,’ ‘Better Buses,’ ‘Better Boots’—walking, you get the idea. Our Yes on BB campaign is in high gear and we need your help to get out the vote.

We are seeking volunteers to help with phone-banking, outreach, and materials distribution. Sign up Today:

Hey Evan the next EBBC meeting is coming up later this month: Kick Off Campaign Meeting Wednesday Jan 30
Its focus is on areas south from Claremont, but it could be a good starting point to plant this idea. Keep us posted if you know of any updates.
