Biketopia is tonight! 5:30-9:30 in Downtown Oakland.
Ring in the new year a bit early with your fellow members and energetic EBBC supporters as we revel in this year’s accomplishments and look forward to 2014. Between the new Bay Bridge bike path, the Bikes on BART victory, new green bike lanes and miles of new bikeways throughout the East Bay, we have plenty of thanks to hand out.
you can still buy tickets in the door (includes membership and a drink ticket).
