The Sacramento region has enormous potential as a place where bicycling is a convenient, comfortable, clean form of everyday travel. To help realize that potential, we advocate for best practices in planning, engineering, funding, programs and laws that prioritize active transportation.
Through Sacramento’s Bicycle Advisory Committee, we got the City of Sacramento to add explicit goals for connectivity, equity, safety and ridership when it updated its Bicycle Master Plan in 2016. As other jurisdictions update their bicycle master plans, we’ll work to ensure that they reflect modern best practices for meeting these goals. The City of Roseville plans to begin updating its bicycle master plan. Sacramento County’s Bikeway Master Plan was last updated in 2011, well before the adoption of federal and state standards for protected bikeways and other modern bicycle infrastructure.
A few years back, we led a coalition campaign for crucial safety improvements on Carlson Drive near the Sac State University campus in East Sacramento. Lately we have been working closely with groups supporting the Freeport Blvd. bike improvements in Sacramento’s Land Park neighborhood.
