Whether you bike to campus everyday, or just once in a while, cyclists are an ever increasing presence at UC Berkeley. The latest counts put us at 5000 strong! With these numbers, we have a unique opportunity to shape our campus as a model, bicycle friendly university.
How can you help?
The Campus Bicycle Initiative is a grassroots, bike advocacy organization. You are invited to to meet other cyclists and discuss your campus bike issues (e.g. parking, theft, safety, dating…whaa?) at our first meeting this spring:
What: Campus Bike Initiative General Meeting
When: Tuesday, Jan. 31st.
Location: Le Conte Hall, Room 111 (map here)
Bring your ideas to the meeting! Our current advocacy agenda and working group ideas include:
a. Bicycle theft awareness and curtailment
b. Creating a bicycle donation program and/or used bike sales for the campus
c. Improving bicyclist-pedestrian relations
d. Improving campus bike infrastructure (e.g. input to campus bike plan, parking, showers, access, bike routes)
e. Education/outreach (including Bike to Work Day)
f. Campus Bike Day
g. Coordination between campus bike groups (Bicycal, Citizen Cycles, Cal Cycling, Campus Bike Committee, etc.)

We look forward to seeing you Tuesday!
