Learn to bike safely and confidently with this FREE class!

Want to ride more but don’t feel confident enough?

Here’s a FREE bicycle skills class, courtesy of Bike East Bay (with support from the UC Berkeley Police Department.)

Learn basic rules of the road, how to share the road with cars on busy streets, how to equip your bicycle, lock your bike, fit your helmet, and avoid crashes by riding predictably, visibly, and communicating with other road users by your actions and signals. Every workshop has the same content so you only need to attend once. For adults and teens, no bike needed.

Please note: All of Bike East Bay’s UC Berkeley classes are open to the public, but are also part of the BEST (Bicycle Education Safety Training) program allowing ticketed cyclists to have their fines reduced.

Class is FREE but please register here.

AS&R Happy Hour Meeting – eat, drink & problem-solve!! @ Everest Kitchen
Feb 22 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Ride on down to Everest Kitchen to enjoy a special Happy Hour menu and chat about biking and walking!

Come and talk about walking and cycling in Albany, while eating delicious Nepali & Indian food! All are invited.
Got a gripe, question or idea that would make cycling or walking better? Hungry or thirsty?
Take care of ALL of those needs in one place!

Sanjiv says “come on down!”

Join us for our Happy Hour at our new location – Everest Kitchen – they generously will give us 15% off their menu, including drinks, and yes, they have plenty of bike parking! This is our every other month (even-numbered months) informal get-together to talk about all things bike and ped in Albany. It’s a good chance to ask about what the city is up to and what our stance on issues is, and to meet others who are interested in issues related to human-scale transit/active transit.
Everyone is welcome.

Note that this will usually take place right before a Traffic and Safety Commission meeting, and will also be a good chance to talk about anything coming up on their agenda.

Have something you want to talk or ask about? Put it in the “comments” section below! Hope to see you there!

There’s plenty of handy bike parking next door and across the street, too, with two Bike Bike Racks!

This one’s across the street, too, so ride on over!

This Bike Bike Rack at Winkler Real Estate Group is perfect when you want to hang out at the new Parklet!
