Albany Strollers & Rollers wants YOUR IDEAS!

Albany Strollers & Rollers (AS&R) is pleased to have had a number of recent successes such as:

Successfully advocated for the new cycletrack in front of the UC Village development (Sprouts, additional retail, and senior housing) 8 new “Bike Bike Racks” and one “Air Kit” bicycle pump around the city in the past year, for [read more…]

Bay Trail Design Along Golden Gate Fields

AS&R recently learned the East Bay Regional Park District has developed 30% engineering drawings of the Bay Trail segment it will construct between Buchanan and Gilman. These drawings could not be readily found on the web, so AS&R reached out for help acquiring them. Several members successfully jumped on it, so now AS&R and you [read more…]

As last reported, the Alameda County Transportation Commission’s (ACTC) grant application to fund construction of the active transportation overpass at Gilman it proposed was not funded. However at that time it had not been funded by the State. All unfunded applications are subsequently forwarded to the relevant regional transportation agency for consideration of funding from [read more…]

Chief among this input is asking that the plan include connections on Berkeley’s side to all the cycling routes proposed in Albany’s Active Transportation Plan (ATP). Most of these connections were already proposed [read more…]

Flawed Gilman Overpass Design Not Funded

Last September, AS&R joined with numerous other organizations (the Berkeley Climate Action Coalition, Bike East Bay and the Albany Berkeley Soccer Club among others) to send a letter to the Alameda County Transportation Commission (ACTC) panning various aspects of its active transportation design for the I-80/Gilman interchange reconstruction, chief among these the proposed multi-million dollar [read more…]

Be seen while you pedal at night and keep your pants legs out of the chain with our new leg bands!

We just turned the clocks back, it gets dark early, and sometimes it even rains – so we all have to do more to BE SEEN BY DRIVERS! We got a new shipment [read more…]
