MLK Day Ride Of Remembrance

A Great Ride in Solidarity and Community for the MLK Holiday

cyclists at Richmond Transit Center
On Martin Luther King Day, Albany Strollers & Rollers members joined Rich City Rides’ Unity Ride event with members of Bike East Bay, Bike Concord, Outdoor Afro, other cyclists from all over the East Bay, and our own, home-grown Check for Bikes.

We rode in solidarity and remembrance with our neighbors and friends, bike activists, and regular folk. Thanks to Rich City Rides and Naj K. Smith for organizing this inclusive ride for Richmond community and beyond.

See photos and a video here. Another video is here.

Join us for the next great Rich City Rides event!

San Pablo Crossing at Dartmouth

Design under work to include cyclist protection 

As the "final" design stands for the Dartmouth crossing, there are no accommodations for crossing cyclists. Due to issues with traffic lights, the protection bike riders rely on was cut from the design. 

AS&R and Bike East Bay have sent a letter in the hope to solve this major issue, and you can find our preferred design and more details on our website.
