Berkeley Bicycle Plan 

biking in berkeley2The purpose of the Bicycle Plan is to make Berkeley a model bicycle-friendly city where bicycling is a safe, attractive, easy, and convenient form of transportation and recreation for people of all ages and bicycling abilities. The Plan includes goals, policies, and recommendations for bikeways, bicycle parking, promotion programs, and safety education programs. The bikeway costs, prioritization criteria, and list of funding sources in the Plan will help City staff, the City Council, and the community to determine where to focus our energy within the range of recommended bicycle projects and programs.
