By Foot and by Bike
The California Bicycle Summit is in a walkable neighborhood. There are many choices of hotels within a 10-minute walk of all summit venues. The Thursday and Friday events are practically adjacent to the 19th St. BART station.
It’s also an easy bike ride from most parts of the East Bay. Use Google’s bikeway layer for a nearly accurate depiction of the bike facilities leading to the venue, except that Telegraph Avenue has continuous bike lanes from the venue to 51st Street. We have reported the error to Google, Inc.
Valet bike parking will be provided by the Uptown Bike Station at 1775 Broadway, just up the block from OakStop on Telegraph. The hours of the Bike Station are 7:00 am to 7:00 pm on weekdays. The Bike Station will stay open until 8 pm on Thursday, April 7, to allow Summit attendees to get their bikes after the evening event.
Please note that the breakfast plenary on Thursday is at the California Ballroom, about a 5-minute walk from the bike parking. It’s a good idea to plan to park your bike a bit early, since there may be a line to get checked in at the Bike Station.
Be aware that Oakland’s bike thieves are talented, so we recommend using the valet bike parking. Only park your bike on the street if you are savvy about security.
