The East Bay is a leader for innovative and accessible bikeways and streets that meet the needs of all users. Bicycling is a mainstream, comfortable and safe choice for people of all cultures, ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Bicycles are well integrated into the transportation system and are a key part of our thriving communities. Lucky for us, just outside our front door the Oakland Embacadero and San Francisco Bay Trail allows riders some of the most picturesque trails in the Bay Area with trails along the waterfront and past sunrise, sunsets, natural shoreline, estuary and marinas.
The future of biking Oakland is bright!
The San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge features a bicycle and pedestrian path—called the Alexander Zuckermann Bike Path or the Bay Bridge Trail —on its new eastern span between Oakland and a point east of Yerba Buena Island. Ultimately, the trail will be extended to the small island and the adjacent Treasure Island.
At the southern end of Lake Merritt’s bike trail, plans are in the works to link the trail to the San Francisco Bay Trail. That trail network will eventually span more than 500 miles, circling the bay and linking more than 40 cities. The connection between the Lake Merritt Trail and the Bay Trail would travel under Interstate 880 and involve the construction of a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge over Union Pacific Railroad tracks and the Embarcadero – our front yard at Brooklyn Basin!
