Help us reach new and existing bikers and connect them with our advocate community! Here are the happenings and how you can get involved:
Pedal Pools are not only an active way to commute as a group, but Oaklanders have a history of riding with City Council Members on Bike to Work Day. Council Members are invited to ride with constituents from their Districts to the celebration in front of City Hall.
WOBO volunteers will run 3 energizer stations at from 7:00-9:00 am on May 9th. This year’s locations are:
- 27th St and Broadway
- Arizmendi Bakery at 3265 Lakeshore Ave
- Frank Ogawa Plaza by City Hall
Ride by to receive giveaway bags, snacks and information about bikeways and parklets.
Lend us a hand!
Our Bike to Work Day volunteer meeting is Thursday, April 25th from 6:00-7:00 pm at 436 14th St, 2nd floor conference room. Volunteer tasks include:
