Bikeways separated from traffic with physical barriers, known officially as “Class IV Separated Bikeways” are approved for use in California thanks to the Protected Bikeways Act of 2015, a legislative campaign of the California Bicycle Coalition.
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. CalBike aims to help change that.

Our in-depth webinar “The Why and How of Protected Bike Lanes”:
We explore the supportive research, technical design, and organizing efforts around the many kinds of protected bike lanes. From advocacy to execution, we 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.
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, and was funded by The California Endowment.
