This Week: Bike Lights, Carlson Boulevard, Holiday Lights

Here are this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Tuesday Light up the Night. The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition’s Light up the Night is an annual bike-light distribution campaign done in conjunction with Bay Area Bicycle Law. Volunteers install hundreds of white front lights and red back lights on bicycles for people riding in the dark. To make sure that the bicycle lights go to those who need them the most, we keep the distribution locations a secret. Volunteers need to sign up here and then they’ll be told where to go. Tuesday, Dec. 20, 5:30-7:30 pm., S.F.
  • Tuesday Carlson Boulevard Project Goes to City Council. The City of Richmond has designed and secured funding for a street redesign project on Carlson Boulevard. From Bayview to Broadway, the “Carlson Crosstown Connection” will transform Carlson from a fast arterial to a neighborhood connector. The project features a road diet and buffered bike lanes. Bike East Bay and other advocacy groups want turnout in support of this project. Tuesday, Dec. 20, 7 pm., Richmond City Hall – Council Chambers, 440 Civic Center Plaza, Richmond.
  • Saturday 3rd Annual Scraper Bike Team Holiday Lights Ride in Oakland. Join the Original Scraper Bike Team for this annual holiday lights bike ride around East Oakland, including the beautiful “Friendship Lights” display on Picardy Drive. Saturday, Dec. 24, 4 pm. Meet at the Martin Luther King Jr Branch Library, 6833 International Blvd, Oakland. RSVP requested.
  • Sunday Bicycle Advisory Committee Meeting. The committee meets monthly to consider bicycle transportation projects and policies to make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors, the SFMTA, and other City and County agencies.

    The SF Bicycle Advisory Committee won’t be meeting on Christmas Day. I don’t think Scrooge rides a bike.
