“That’s community. That’s BART ridership. That’s people that are experienced on BART, that react, and don’t just look away.”

Take The Lane: Bicyclists can ride wherever they want if they’re traveling at the speed of traffic. If traveling slower than the speed of traffic, cyclists can position themselves wherever in the lane as necessary for safety. California state law CVC21202, states cyclists must ride as close to the right side of the road as safely possible except under the following conditions: when passing, preparing for a left turn, avoiding hazards, if the lane is too narrow to share, or if approaching a place where a right turn is authorized e.g. any time the cyclist feels unsafe rolling over glass or avoiding debris, the cyclist can take the lane. Cyclists appreciate motorists who show respect and patience in light of cyclists taking every day action for our environment. Yes, you too can contribute: ride a bike or use public transit to better our minds, bodies and future! Feel free to ask me how!
