Our Vision for Oakland: 

We want every person who lives, plays, and works in Oakland to feel safe and comfortable walking and bicycling, and that they know how to make their neighborhood a better place to walk and bike.

What We Do:

  • Actively participate in local planning processes to ensure that full bicyclist and pedestrian accommodations are included in the planning process.
  • Design and launch key campaigns to push for the city to make good on the bicycle and pedestrian master plans.
  • Nurture a vibrant bicycling and walking community here in Oakland by organizing and hosting “pop-up” community events such as Oaklavia, Park(ing) Day, and Bike to Work Day, so you can experience the streets differently even for just a few hours at a time.

Our Mission:

WOBO is a membership-based, volunteer-driven non-profit organization whose mission is to improve neighborhood livability, vitality and sustainability by making walking and biking in Oakland safe, easy, accessible and fun.
