Advocacy Campaigns

Bike East Bay is committed to improving bicycling for all residents in all cities of the East Bay. As a whole, these campaigns have a big impact on increasing ridership, helping us reach out to more diverse communities, and take advantage of an opportunity to catalyze improvements beyond our immediate efforts.

Current priority campaigns include:

Multimodal San Pablo Ave: Envision a protected bikeway on San Pablo Avenue from Oakland all the way north to the Carquinez Bridge.

Bridging the Bay: Bicycle and pedestrian bridges across waterways and freeways, reconnecting our communities.

East Bay Greenway: A corridor of protected bike lanes and trails connecting from Oakland to Fremont, and every BART station along the way.

Lake Merritt Loop: A fully protected and continuous 2-way cycletrack loop around Lake Merritt in Oakland.

Green Mobility Ambassadors (GMAs) is an innovative training program Bike East Bay began in 2023. These trainings prepare individuals to engage in grassroots community organizing and education on transportation projects and programs in their communities. GMAs develop skills and knowledge to communicate with their neighbors about the project planning and implementation process, identify and report construction issues, and develop robust stakeholder relationships.

A variety of topics are covered at multiple training sessions and include the following:

Bike Civics: All About Bikeways
Bike Civics: Make Yourself Heard
Bike East Bay Education Classes
Hazard Reporting: Potholes & More
Environmental & Mobility Justice Training

Population(s) Served

The overarching goal of our bike education program is to remove barriers to bicycling through programs that empower and educate East Bay residents, with a priority on people of color, people with fewer resources, immigrants, families, and communities suffering health disparities.

Bike East Bays education program offers 100% free on-bike, webinar, and classroom bike education in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Since 2011 our education program has served over 25,000 individuals through partnerships with community based organizations that are focused on youth and marginalized communities. Our youth programming includes Family Cycling Rodeos, often part of community, sustainability and youth focused events, and Family Cycling Workshops. Other on-bike workshops include Adult Learn-to-Ride, which serves a high number of immigrants and women, and Urban Cycling.

Each year, we celebrate the entire month of May as Bike Month with a special day during the month designated as Bike to Wherever Day. Bike East Bay organizes more than 100 energizer stations throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, hubs for bicycle riders and all folks on wheels participating in the day.

Pre-pandemic, Bike to Work Day (BTWD) was a celebration of bicycles as a fun and healthy way to get to work, as well as an opportunity for those who don't usually bike commute to try it out. Its also a time to advocate for improved bicycle infrastructure and safety.

During the pandemic and over the last couple of years, the event evolved into Bike to Wherever Days to encourage riders to get out and pedal to do errands, meet friends outdoors, and for some to get to work safely and easily.

Now, we embrace both events and encourage the community to pedal to do errands, visit friends and family, commute to work, and ride recreationally.

Data

  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
