Your donation for Better bikeways, walkable cities and vibrant public places in Redding & Shasta county

At Shasta Living Streets we imagine Downtown Redding as the center hub of a connected city. It’s a people-friendly, walkable, bikeable district with vibrant public places, and smart-city amenities. 

We Believe when we give a lot more people the resources, skills and confidence they need to get around safely and conveniently walking and biking, people discover the ease and joy of active living. When we add high-quality facilities and experiences, our community becomes healthier, happier, and more prosperous.

This is why with the Shasta Bike Depot we have designed a full-service set of features for active transportation commutes and tourism services, to provide amenities, create community, and empower people. Starting in Downtown, the services and amenities will help build our trail town and create a connected city.

Our Sponsors

Please know, this raffle prize is made possible by generous contribution from Yuba Bicycles, the Redding Parks and Trails Foundation, and last years’ Spicy Curry e-cargo bike winners, Jenn and Ted, who were so happy with the experience of owning an e-cargo bike, they made a generous donation to “pay it forward” to make another bike available to a lucky family in our community.

Share your biking and walking safety concerns by Mon July 24

Do you want safer streets for walking and bicycling? 

Would you like the Redding City Council to continue to prioritize efforts to improve the safety and accessibility of streets and neighborhoods? 

Your voice counts.  The Redding City Council is asking for input.
Help ensure this serious safety issue continues to be a priority for the City of Redding.  Contact information below.

The Challenge

Traffic deaths and life-altering injuries from collisions are preventable.  For too long we’ve considered traffic deaths and severe injuries to be inevitable side effects of modern life.  We face a crisis on our streets — with traffic violence taking too many lives, both from collisions and from sedentary lifestyles.

The significant loss of life exacts a tragic toll, extending beyond personal loss to deep community impacts, including: personal economic costs and emotional trauma to those suffering; and significant taxpayer spending on emergency response and long-term healthcare costs. And because so many fear for their safety on our streets, there is no real transportation choice for our families — no right to choose to walk or bike — and, as a result, we compromise our public health with increasing rates of sedentary diseases, higher transportation costs, traffic congestion and pollution.

The Vision

We can save lives, prevent life-altering injuries, increase physical activity, reduce the high cost of transportation for local families, and improve the livability of our community and the strength of our local economy.

People in Redding from all walks of life -staff in the City of Redding and Shasta Regional Transportation, as well as businesses, developers and community groups are attempting to address this problem.  We want to ensure that their work to make streets safer for all modes of transportation continues to be a priority so they can move forward with reliable data, resources, and political support.

How you can help

Two opportunities for public participation are available:

First, Share your thoughts in an email  

City Council wants to know what safety issues concern you – and what solutions you would like to see addressed.  Please send a respectful email with your concerns for safe bicycling and walking in Redding, generally, on with specific detail.  We want to register the communities interest to continue addressing this serious safety issue.

Email here:
All emails are due by 5 p.m. Monday, July 24  

  • Emails and will be provided to the City Council prior to the forum.
  • Email questions will be addressed at the forum as time allows, and may be addressed in subsequent materials.

And/or attend the forum and share your thoughts in person

Community Forum
Thursday. July 27
4 to 7 p.m.
City Council Chambers, 777 Cypress Avenue

In addition to the City Council, Redding Police officials will attend, as well representatives of Shasta County public safety agencies. The forum will include background information on what the City has done, and is able to do, to combat crime, including a rundown on ordinances the City has enacted to protect the public.


Each year, more than 30,000 people — the population of a small city — are needlessly killed on American streets and thousands more are injured.  We call this suffering traffic “accidents” — but, in reality, we have the power to prevent traffic collisions.

Beach Bus! Great things happen when we work together

SRTA, RABA, Whiskeytown National Recreation Area and Redding Recreation are joining together to make the Beach Bus a reality.

This program comes directly from feedback given in recent unmet needs surveys that show strong interest in summer service to the lake.  This was validated as a priority by the nine member Social Services Transportation Advisory Council  (Reminder:  We are lucky to have Margie McAleer represents us on this council, on behalf of Shasta Living Streets members and mission.)

ACTION ALERT:  Join us at the RABA meeting next Monday to show support for this program!   

  • Monday June 20, 5:15pm at Redding City Council Chambers.  You’ll find us in the right side seating / towards the front.

Local agencies are responding quickly to your voices on the transit unmet-needs surveys. Thank you to everyone for taking a little time to make comments.

Beach Bus

Great things happen when we work together!

Let’s continue to show our support for improvements to transit that build excellence and support active lifestyles in Shasta County!

It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way

Yesterday, a person on bicycle was killed in Redding.

At Shasta Living Streets, we believe that most collisions are preventable by reducing dangerous behaviors and building streets that work for everyone.

In America, over 30,000 people die every year on our streets and highways; somehow, we have become inured to these daily tragedies and accept them as inevitable. Programs like Vision Zero say, “Wait a minute, these deaths are preventable. We don’t have to accept this—better infrastructure and better policies can stop the slaughter.” What’s more, Vision Zero programs have been shown to work.

Better infrastructure like protected bike lanes are the cornerstone of any Vision Zero program. Make no mistake, protected bike lanes work:

And better infrastructure doesn’t benefit just people on bikes:

  • When protected bike lanes are installed in New York City, injury crashes for all road users (drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists) typically drop by 40 percent and by more than 50 percent in some locations. [source: Memorandum on Bike Lanes, City of New York, Office of the Mayor, 21 March 2011]

Better bicycle infrastructure also has many proven economic benefits, but we will discuss that another time. The fact is that we can do better. We should do better.

Let’s not shy away from excellence. Let’s not turn our back on the deaths. Let’s work together to built streets that work better for people who walk, bike, and drive.

Help us extend the river trail network and enhance river access



Shasta Living Streets, The Fly Shop, The Civic Auditorium, Turtle Bay have teamed up to support The City of Redding to scope and implement improvements along the riverfront west of the Sundial Bridge.   

We are asking our members and customers, partners and friends to join us and take a simple step to build a community-contribution fund that will support City of Redding trail and boat ramp improvement project.

This fund will be used to develop improvements that build on our current assets, address specific challenges, and make improvements today that will benefit families and businesses in the near term, while also creating a legacy for our community into the future.

You can help extend the river trail network and enhance river access

Join others and make a donation to the community-contribution fund for the next step to care for our spectacular river and the intersection between the river, our city, and the people who live, work, and play here.

Riverfront Park to the Boat Ramp Improvements

This site is used by fishermen, boaters, rafters, kayakers, paddle boarders, and more.  The convenient location just upstream from the world-famous Sundial Bridge, Turtle Bay Museum and soon-to-be-built hotel makes it a priority site for residents of Redding and Shasta County as well as tourists visiting from all over the state, country, and even the world.



Enhance River Access

The planned upgrade to this area includes enhancements to the riparian area along the river that will benefit the important fisheries and spawning areas in this section of the river.  Boating improvements include widening and re-paving to allow for multiple vehicle launching; a graded area for drift boat, raft, and kayak parking to reduce congestion in the launch area; and will blend in well with the extension to the River Trail Network, improvements to the roads into the boat ramp area and parking lot, and added greenspace and fishermen’s access along the river between the boat ramp and the bridge.




Extend the River Trail Network

Enhancements are planned for this area to allow people to walk along the river, enjoy seating and picnic areas and to ride a bike from the Sundial Bridge along this southern shore of the river.   Long-term planning is underway to make a connection from this area of Turtle Bay into downtown Redding.  The scoping process will help determine how this section of trail can enhance the planned bikeway and trail that will connect downtown Redding to the Turtle Bay hotel, Sundial Bridge, Civic Auditorium and other attractions in the area.

Donate Today to help extend the river trail network and enhance river access
