Join us for our next EBBC General Meeting. This month, you’ll hear about one of our latest projects: a collaboration with AC transit to train bus drivers and cyclists alike on safely sharing the road with each other. We’ll spend time flexing our advocacy muscles in preparation for the Bay Area Toll Authority Meeting meeting on Jan. 27th, where we’ll be advancing our campaign for the Bay Bridge West Span Bicycle-Pedestrian-Maintenance Pathway. And we’ll travel to South America and back again, (virtually) looking at inspiring Sunday Streets-type events in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Bogota, Columbia… and some events a little closer to home, too. EBBC General Meetings are one of the best ways to find out the latest and greatest in bicycling around the East Bay.
