AS&R Happy Hour Meeting – eat, drink & problem-solve!! @ Everest Kitchen
Dec 5 @ 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 usual location – Everest Kitchen – they generously offer 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!

BIKE TO WHEREVER DAY! @ Blue Heron Bikes
Sep 24 – Sep 30 all-day

It doesn’t matter where you’re going…just go!

Bike to Work Day was canceled this Spring due to Covid-19, but that doesn’t mean you’ll miss Bike East Bay’s musette bags in 2020.

Today is “Bike to Wherever Day!” and this is “Bike to Wherever” week!

Stop by our partner shop, Blue Heron Bikes, between Sept. 24 and Sept. 30, from 9am-6pm except for Sunday and pick up your bag. This year the goodies are going virtual unless you renew your membership, in which case you get an enhanced bag with some traditional, 3-D goodies (special pickup window on the evening of Sept. 24).

Find event details or join/renew via the Bike East Bay Bike to Wherever 2020 page.

…and we can always count on Rob’s generosity
