Breakout 1

From Research to Toxic Tours, the Youth who Formed ROAR in West Long Beach

Ride On All Roads (ROAR) was developed by youth leaders to address the lack of bike infrastructure and safe passageways for folks who depend on their bikes to get around. These rides spurred residents to conduct their own community-based research on some of the environmental justice issues they saw in their neighborhoods helping lead to the creation of our newest annual bike mobilization: The West Long Beach Bike Toxic Tour. This panel will discuss the history and narrative behind these formative movements in hopes of inspiring other community members to harness their power and create actions that center their stories.

Whitney Amaya; Javier Garay; Jan Victor Andasan; Julius Calacsan, East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice; Taylor Thomas, Research and Policy Analyst, East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice
Tue 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Replace your Elected Officials (maybe with yourself)!

TBD

Sometimes decision makers can't be convinced; they have to be replaced. This workshop is for everyone who is or wants to be involved in electoral politics: whether as a candidate or an activist supporting a candidate.

The Active Transportation Program and Innovation

TBD

California's primary funding source for biking and walking has provided over $1 billion to over 700 project in its six years of existence. This panel will look forward to the program's potential to fund projects that serve as a junction for community needs and model active transportation projects. Are transformative projects more likely to increase walking and biking?

Laurie Waters, California Transportation Commission; Esther Rivera, California Walks; Linda Khamoushian, California Bicycle Coalition; Project Implementer TBD (invited)
Tue 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Breakout 2

Caltrans District Active Transportation Plans are Underway

TBD

Caltrans has just begun to develop an active transportation plan for each of its 12 districts. Each district's plan will identify active transportation improvements needed on, across or parallel to the State Highway System, with an objective of connecting to local active transportation networks. Throughout the study process and as part of each plan, there will be an emphasis on social equity. The presentation will include an overview of the statewide process and district level experience with the public engagement process.

Tue 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Economic Development and Safer Streets through Bicycle Tourism

TBD

Bicycle tourism is a big business. When business leaders understand that, they develop a new incentive to make bicycling a safe and easy thing to do in their community. Plus, bike tourists with credit cards can be a huge economic boost to depressed rural communities. Hear from the experts in bike tourism about what you can do to take advantage of the bike tourist economy.

How to Integrate Equity into Bike and Pedestrian Advocacy

TBD

Equity is often tossed around these days as a buzz word that many advocacy orgs use to bolster their credibility, but many do not fully understand what equity means or do not grasp how to integrate it fully into their activities. Equity is more than just saying you represent a community, it is how you integrate that community into your activities and how your organization builds trust and relationships within those communities. Through real world examples, we will illustrate several campaigns that successfully integrate equity as a core tenet and work with attendees to reshape their own campaigns to better integrate equitable principles.

Kevin Shin, Walk Bike Long Beach; Danny Gamboa, Healthy Active Streets (invited); Sumire Gant, Sumire Gant Consulting (invited)
Tue 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Leveraging the League's Bicycle-Friendly Communities Program

TBD

Over the last 25 years, the League of American Bicyclists’ Bicycle Friendly Communities program has provided the recognition for success, organizing framework, and roadmap of actions for communities to make bicycling safe, comfortable, and open to all. This session will feature the League's program leaders and local leaders discussing how to get the most out of the BFC program to build your healthy, active community.

Ken McLeod, League of American Bicyclists. Local leaders TBD.

Tue 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Breakout 3

Build It Quickly Part One: From Pop-up to Permanent

TBD

Low-stress networks with protected bikeways and intersections will transform our communities, but it will be decades to build them, with current processes. Can't we do it faster? Part One of this two-part workshop series looks at how San Jose went from a week-long pop-up protected bikeway to a two-year quick-build network of protected bikeways and intersections - all using inexpensive materials. It also looks at the “Go Human” program of the Southern California Association of Governments which has implemented 36 tactical urbanism projects as official advocacy for safer street infrastructure. Learn from their successes and mistakes so your city can avoid them, as well as how the quick-build project led to a successful grant application to make the quick-build “paint and plastic” facilities permanent with hardscape improvements.

Tue 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm

Creating Grassroots Bicycle Advocacy by and for Women

TBD

Women account for approximately one-fifth of everyday bicycle users in most of California. What can we do to make bicycling more accessible to women? This workshop will discuss networks of women-led bicycle advocacy groups, with perspective from Women on Bikes Culver City and Monique Trammell, Founder of the American Women's Cycling Network.

Mary Daval, Women on Bikes Culver City; Monique Trammel, Women's Cycling Network; Black Girls Do Bike (invited)
Tue 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm

Grassroots Bike Shops that Build Community

TBD

Every community needs a bike shop, but many (including most low-income communities) are "bike shop deserts" Community bike shops can be the oasis for residents who need a bike shop within walking distance, and can help build community and create jobs for neighbors. Learn from Oakland’s proposal to put community bike shops in neighborhood branch libraries, and from leaders in community bike shop development around the state.

Ade Neff, Ride On bike shop in Leimert Park (invited); Representative, Rich City Rides (TBD); Jared Sanchez, CalBike; Jimmy Lizama, Relampgo Wheelery (invited); Danny Gamboa, Healthy Active Streets (invited); Rio Oxas & Adonia Lugo, People for Mobility Justice (invited).
Tue 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm

Breakout 4

Bike Advocacy and the Housing Crisis

TBD

California's new home construction is falling short of demand by nearly 100,000 homes each year. We know that new housing next to transit is critical to meet the housing shortage and reduce the need for driving, yet new construction meets opposition for many reasons, chief of them concerns about gentrification and increased traffic. How does this intersect with bicycling advocacy, and what can we do about?

Ann Fryman, Senator Scott Wiener's office; CA YIMBYs (invited); LA-based anti-gentrification activists (invited)
Tue 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm

Build It Quickly Part Two: The Network is the Project

TBD

In this session, we look at the political and technical tools behind two additional strategies cities have used to build whole bikeway networks quickly. First, we look at  New Orleans, Louisiana and Fremont, California, where leaders have decided to consider the bikeway network itself as the (single) bike project instead of the eventual result of scores of separate projects. Then, we look at San Francisco's landmark "Quick Build" policy that has resulted in protected bike lanes being constructed within weeks of the decision to do it.

Equitable Community Outreach and Partnership Models in Oakland and San Jose

TBD

For Oakland's 2019 Bicycle Plan and San Jose's Bike Plan 2020, planners tossed out the old playbook on public involvement. Oakland officials identified five community organization partners and added them to the project consultant team, based on their geographic focus and deep knowledge and experience with transportation, housing, equity, and other social justice issues within these underserved areas of Oakland. San Jose planners used community partnerships, social media, and innovative strategies to reach their 1.1 million diverse residents. This workshop will discuss the hits and misses and lessons learned from these intentional efforts to engage communities whose voices have historically been overlooked.

7:30 Breakfast Plenary

Buffet breakfast is served from 7:30 a.m.-8:30 a.m. in the courtyard.

The New Urban Mobility

The promise of the new urban mobility is the ubiquitous availability of affordable, lightweight, and low-impact transportation devices for short trips. Shared bikes, e-bikes, scooters, and whatever-is-next present an unprecedented opportunity to transform urban transportation by replacing cars for most short trips.

But this opportunity has existed with bikes for a century already; is this opportunity really different? The profit motive of automobile companies propelled the dominance of cars in our cities a century ago; Will the profit motive of the micromobility companies propel the success of micromobility this time around? What does it matter that Lyft and Uber own the country's largest bike share operators? Can public institutions leverage this moment to ensure access and inclusion for everyone, instead of enhanced mobility for the advantaged and reduced service for the rest of us?

TBD
Wed 10:00 am - 11:15 am

How to Communicate to Win the Hard Fights

TBD

The conventions for engaging our audience have evolved drastically over the last decade with the rise of active transportation planning and social media. How can we communicate beyond the “bicyclist community” to win support for politically challenging projects? The goal of this panel is to create a dialogue about the successes and failures of different communication strategies. We'll examine the strategy that won the Mar Vista Great Streets Project and how communications have been handled in other communities.

Wed 10:00 am - 11:15 am

Scooters - What's a City to Do?

TBD

In less than two years, scooters have accounted for more than 40 million trips in U.S. cities. Good news, or bad? The scooter boom, funded by billions of dollars of private capital, is both a threat to walking, biking, and equitable transportation in cities, and a potential boost to low-costs car-free urban transportation that will strengthen the demand for safe streets in all our neighborhoods. What can we do as city leaders and advocates to leverage the potential of scooters for good? With San Jose’s deliberative and research-based approach as an example, this workshop will discuss the shared micromobility regulatory environment that protects people walking, avoids curbside clutter, sets firm requirements for data-sharing, and enables systems that improve mobility and quality of life.

Bicycle Activism in Latin America

TBD

Since 2015, an entrepreneur, a photographer, two journalists and a high school student have teamed up to create Colombia's BiciActiva Radio. They broadcast live radio and podcasts on the topics of urban cycling, safety, infrastructure, and other mobility, and the intersections of all those diverse stakeholders. Frank Aguirre and his partners at the Urban Cycling Collective BCSicletos work to reclaim the streets in La Paz, Baja California Sur, México.  The moderator will be Chris Morfas, formerly Executive Director of CalBike, currently a volunteer for Councilmember Mafe Rojas and the mayoral campaign of Claudia López.

First-mile Last-mile Planning

TBD

In 2014, Los Angeles Metro passed an award-winning First Mile-Last Mile Strategic Plan. Because "everyone loves it," as a Board member claims, the plan was converted to a program in 2016. This workshop will feature the program's director explaining how they plan and implement first-last mile access for new transit stations, and plan retrofit access for existing stations. We'll hear from the full-time staffer hired by the Bay Area Rapid Transit to work with local governments to improve bike access to stations, and from CalBike's own expert on the role of micromobility in providing first-last mile access, especially as it relates to the southern San Joaquin Valley cities.

Forest Barnes, California Bicycle Coalition; Jacob Lieb, Senior Director First-Last Mile Planning, L.A. METRO; Heath Maddox, Bay Area Rapid Transit (invited)

LA River Path: Closing the Gap

Meet in the courtyard

Everyone knows the LA River. You may remember the large, trapezoid-shaped concrete river bed, topped with rows of high voltage power lines from such films as Grease and Terminator II. Channelized mostly in the 1930s, the once meandering LA River is experiencing a rebirth. Agencies up and down the river are working to bring nature and people back to the river. One project, funded by Measure M and breaking ground in 2023, will enable recreational and transportation use of the river by closing an 8-mile gap to create a 32-mile-long continuous bike path, completely separated from automobile traffic. The project will not just knit together the path – it will connect all of the communities in between, including Elysian Valley, Union Station – Los Angeles’ regional transit hub, Boyle Heights, Vernon and Maywood. Join us on a ride of the existing LA River Path to discuss the opportunities and challenges of closing the gap.

Walking Tour of Downtown LA

Meet in the courtyard

This is a walking tour of some highlights of downtown LA. Leaving from the Community Foundation, we will walk through Olvera Street and briefly explore the museums at the El Pueblo de los Angeles. We will continue along Main Street and through the Rotunda at Los Angeles City Hall. Exiting the Spring Street steps, we will walk two blocks west through Grand Park and then cut over to the Cathedral. From the Cathedral we will continue along Grand Avenue to the Walt Disney Concert Hall, where we will explore the hidden garden. Then we will walk along Grand to Angel's Flight, and take it down the hill to Grand Central Market for refreshments. We will end with a walk through the Bradbury Building. We should give ourselves 3 hours to include return time to the Community Foundation. I can modify the tour to reduce the amount of time if needed.

E-bikes Extend the Reach of Active Transportation

TBD

Electric bicycles have changed the way we get around. The flatten hills, shorten distances, and make hard trips easy. They make bicycling a viable option for people with children or other heavy loads, elderly folks, and those with certain disabilities. CalBike's campaigns to promote and support e-bikes have found success: e-bike share is now part of the Clean Mobility Options for Disadvantaged Communities program, and low-income residents are eligible to receive vouchers for e-bikes when they turn in their polluting cars. But straightforward purchase incentives, like the state gives for electric cars, are still not available. This workshop will review the latest in studies that show the benefits of e-bikes in reducing greenhouse gases and why the state funds should support e-bikes even more than they support electric cars.

Bicycle Tour of Santa Clarita - LA's High Country

Meet at Union Station bike share pod

The City of Santa Clarita is located 40 miles north of downtown Los Angeles in a valley formed by three mountain ranges – The San Gabriel to the South, the Santa Susana to the West and the Sierra Palona to the North. With a population of 216,000, it is the third largest City in Los Angeles County.

The City maintains a network of 40 miles of Class I bike paths across its 64 square miles. In addition to the steep topography surrounding the City, its form is influenced by arterial roads curving between neighborhoods, and the Santa Clara River. Much of the City’s trial system runs along the river and its tributaries with under crossings of roadways to create a unique, uninterrupted trail experience.

City staff will lead the tour and answer questions regarding how the network came about during the City’s 32 years of existence and provide a glimpse of how active transportation can be included in the connected city of the future.
