Read and Bike with OPL!

OPL has planned a whole month of bike programs around a city-wide read of Elly Blue's Everyday Bicycling — including a few volunteer efforts with Cycles for Changes, a scraper bike art program for children and teens, and other exciting programs to get you reading and riding. Read a book, ride a bike, and help make Oakland a better place!

Everyday Bicycling

Elly Blue's Everyday Bicycling introduces the basics of using a bike in your daily life, with the hope "that getting around by bicycle becomes so normal that everyone can just get on a bike every day without thinking twice about it."
