We presented our successes and collaborate to make California #1 for Cycling

The 2015 California Bicycle Summit took place late October in San Diego.

The California Bicycle Summit

Shasta Living Streets is one of 16 partner affiliates of the California Bicycle Coalition. These affiliated groups are working with the California Bicycle Coalition to triple bicycling statewide and make California #1 for cycling!

These groups have come together to assist the California Bicycle Coalition in delivering a Bicycle Summit to build healthier, safer, and more prosperous communities.  The Summit includes three days of interactive panels, inspiring presentations, bike tours, sessions to share best practices and build skills, and networking.   Details are at California Bicycle Summit 2015

A North State Delegation Prepares to head to San Diego

Shasta Living Streets shares Our Successes

Anne Wallach Thomas was invited to present on two topics

Success in Working with your local Caltrans District

We have now worked successfully with Caltrans District 2 on a number of projects, including

  • Improvements to Downtown Redding on California Street.  This project won the California Bicycle Coalition’s award for the “Best District Decision of 2014.”  This project was featured in the Caltrans Performance Report announcing Caltrans’ new direction and goals.
  • Bicycles May Use Full Lane signage, first posting of this type of sign in Shasta County
  • Rumble-strip warning highway markings that are the first of their kind, and best practice in California
  • The first ever parklet on a Caltrans roadway

The Policy Rationale behind Open Streets

Shasta Living Streets has produced an open street program in Redding for the past five years and we are part of the international open street organizers network.   Last year’s event in Downtown Redding was called Streets Alive!  

We have been asked to discuss how we use our program to help drive outcomes in public health, active transportation, environmental impact, social connectedness and cultural engagement.  How to move from temporary events to generating community support and bringing infrastructure change.

It’s great to work with The Shasta Wheelmen to put on the five rides for the Jamboree each fall for local riders and visitors to Redding and Shasta County.

We look forward to next year – when we can do this all again!
