Streets for Everyone

We push to connect neighborhoods with safe and complete networks for biking, safe walking, and great transit.

We work to connect neighborhoods with great biking, walking and transit options. We propose substantial increase in funding for whole bikeway networks— safe and connected webs of inviting bike paths, quiet neighborhood streets, and protected bike lanes and intersections — so that everyone, ages 8 to 80, can feel comfortable riding.

We’ll strengthen Complete Streets policies to make sure that streets serve everyone, not just people in cars. We will work to make safety a top consideration in road projects, displacing fast and unimpeded car traffic as the top priority.

Street design must be reformed to create safe streets attractive to everyone. As called for in the state’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, we advocate for the development of a new bike and pedestrian design manual so that California once again leads the nation in street design.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

California will never have the equitable, prosperous and inclusive communities that CalBike advocates for until we address and redress the anti-Black violence that has plagued our country since slavery. We want to actively contribute to ending systemic racism, especially in transportation policy, and most especially in bicycling advocacy. We promise to listen and learn how we can best do this work. To our community members who experience the violence of racism on a daily basis: we see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.
