Take action – volunteer – ride with CalBike

It’s time to legalize safe street crossings

Tell Governor Newsom to sign the Freedom to Walk Act. CalBike is sponsoring the Freedom to Walk Act (AB 1238, Ting) to repeal California’s unjust jaywalking laws. The bill will make safe mid-block crossings legal, as well as crossing against traffic lights. Jaywalking tickets place an unfair burden on low-income residents, whose neighborhoods often lack adequate infrastructure, and are disproportionately used to harass Black Californians.

Support the Bicycle Safety Stop

The Idaho stop was the first, but many other states have since legalized the bicycle safety stop, which allows bikes to treat stop signs as yields. The Bicycle Safety Stop Bill (AB 122, Boerner Horvath) has passed the legislature. Tell Governor Newsom to sign it into law, so bike riders can legally treat stop signs as yields.

E-Bike Purchase Incentives

California has $10 million for e-bikes. The purchase incentive program should be in place by July 2022. Add your name to get notified when e-bike subsidies become available.

Volunteer with CalBike

The movement for safe streets and healthy communities in California needs you! We regularly need volunteers in the Bay Area or in Sacramento. In addition, we often have positions for volunteers working remotely. As a volunteer, you can gain valuable experience, connect with interesting people, and have fun!
