Fair Share for Bikes: public workshop on Measure B Reauthorization in San Leandro

From EBBC:

In our Summer newsletter, we asked you to ‘imagine bicycling from Fremont to Oakland on a continuous, separated bike path known as the East Bay Greenway, or imagine a Bike Station at every BART Station with secure bike parking for hundreds of bikes, or imagine bicycling to work from Oakland to San Francisco across the Bay Bridge Pathway.’ We need you to attend an upcoming public workshop and ask the county complete the Countywide Bicycle Plan.

You can help.
