18 neighbors want bike lanes on 14th Street in Oakland.

Progress

Lake Merritt is getting some excellent new bike lanes right now. When they're finished, people will be shuttled around our beautiful waterway and into a dangerous, crowded, congested pathway for seven blocks until they get back to Downtown. I propose removing the outer traffic lanes and replacing them with green painted bicycle lanes!

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: bikeeastbay.org/YesOnBB

I'm up for pitching in on spray chalking some lanes, or doing some signage. Check out this project from New Orleans - guerrilla bike signs for when bike lanes end, change, etc. handbook.neighborland.com/good...

Are there any new ideas worth discussing on this site? How do people feel about a flyer campaign? Or chalking some guerrilla bike lanes? Maybe we could declare a 14th Street Bike Lanes Day? September 14 is a Friday - it could be good timing.
