California Cyclists: Vote NO in the Recall Election
While CalBike doesn’t agree with Governor Newsom on every issue, his budgets have funded programs that make California’s streets safer for everyone who rides, skates, scoots, or walks.
Governor Newsom is also committed to addressing the Climate Emergency, and bikes are clearly part of the solution.
CalBike recommends you vote NO on the recall.
Please mail in your ballot ASAP.
Considering that even the California Republican Party chose to not endorse any of the challengers, we recommend leaving the second vote blank. None of these candidates would further our agenda of making California’s communities more prosperous, equitable, healthy, and joyful through bicycling.
Removing Newsom and replacing him with an untested and unprepared alternative who wouldn’t represent the values of most Californians would be a disaster. It would doom the state to months of political and bureaucratic dysfunction and economic uncertainty. And for what purpose?

“With the IPCC report on global climate recently confirming the global community is nowhere close to doing enough to mitigate the climate crisis, we cannot risk having a climate denier in the California Governor’s office at this crucial time…. A pro-polluter governor at the helm in California— the world’s fifth-largest economy— will wreak havoc on our environmental future.”
