More and more cities want to facilitate safe biking by installing protected bike lanes, but this new-to-California design is still much too rare in California’s bike plans and projects. A CalBike webinar on July 13th aims to help change that.
“The Why and How of Protected Bike Lanes” will explore the supportive research, technical design, and organizing efforts around the many kinds of protected bike lanes. From advocacy to execution, we’ll cover the ins-and-outs of creating bike-friendly routes through protected lanes and equip you with the tools you need to make your community safer. Register Here.
Bikeways separated from traffic with physical barriers, known officially as “class 4 separated bikeways” are approved for use in California thanks to the Protected Bikeways Act of 2015, a legislative campaign of the California Bicycle Coalition.

The webinar is part of a series of training and outreach efforts focused on disadvantaged communities by the Active Transportation Resource Team, a four-organization collaboration including the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, the California Bicycle Coalition, California Walks and the Local Government Commission. It is funded by The California Endowment.
