Bike-In Movie – “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” @ Albany Community Center
May 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join your friends and neighbors for a free “bike-in” showing of the family film “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure!”

The City of Albany’s Recreation Department is getting into the spirit of Bike Month with a Bike in Movie!
They will be showing “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure”  (PG), a family-friendly comedy about one man-child’s cross-country adventure in search of his beloved stolen bike. It’s a bizarre story of perseverance and hope in times of adversity, and is chock-full of zany characters.

Ride your bike on down to the Albany Community Center and join us for this fabulous Bike Month event! There will have plenty of space to park your bike in a protected area, complete with a massive bike rack.

The popcorn is free and will be flowing freely!

They even welcome leashed dogs!

Support those who support us – hope to see you there as Bike Month winds down!!

We’ll have two of these racks right out front for your parking convenience. Please bring your bike locks – they will be visible from inside, but unattended.

Berkeley San Pablo Ave Traffic Safety Walk
Nov 5 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Join Walk Bike Berkeley members, District 2 Berkeley City Council Candidate Terry Taplin, Transportation Commissioners, and others to discuss road safety challenges and opportunities on San Pablo Avenue.
Remember, what is done in Berkeley will have an impact on Albany’s stretch of San Pablo!

Meet at Dwight & San Pablo, walk to University Ave (7 blocks)
RSVP: info@walkbikeberkeley.org

WHY SAN PABLO?

  • San Pablo from Dwight to University is the highest priority street segment to fix in Berkeley’s draft Pedestrian Plan, based on safety and equity needs

  • Just 14% of Berkeley’s street miles account for 93% of pedestrian fatalities & severe injuries

  • Berkeley’s busy, arterial streets are the most dangerous for people walking and biking

  • Alameda County, including Albany, is planning the future of the San Pablo Avenue Corridor

    IF YOU WANT TO WALK OR BIKE TO THE START FROM ALBANY, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT AND PROPOSED STARTING TIME & PLACE IN “COMMENTS”
