Shasta Living Streets is a great place to work offering a supportive environment and opportunities for learning and growth. You will work in a beautiful building in a vibrant Downtown, with best of class vendors, and partner organizations that believe in what we do. It’s a place where you can bring joy to people while also delivering innovative programs that make a real difference in your city and the world.
We are building a team to realize a ten-year vision to provide 21st Century amenities to empower and encourage cycling excellence and trail tourism to raise Redding and Shasta County into the ranks of top places for active, healthy living. We do this in partnership with State of California and City of Redding for the additional urgent need to achieve goals of greenhouse gas reductions in transportation.
This May we will launch the Shasta Bike Depot and Redding Bikeshare. We are creating a social and practical mobility hub for local residents and trail enthusiasts, and visitors from out of town.

Shasta Living Streets is excited to announce that BCycle has joined as our vendor-partner to provide electric bikes, docks, and technology for Downtown Redding’s Bikeshare to make moving around Downtown Redding as fun and convenient as possible for everyone. Built on more than a decade of experience, BCycle electric-assist bikes offer accessible, convenient, and safe biking for everyone.
In the past decade, community members, businesses, and local agencies have been planning and developing Downtown Redding to be a walkable and bikeable residential, commerce and entertainment district. Business and property owners, and the people who live, work and play in Downtown, are ready for a high-quality bikeshare system.
The launch date in spring of 2023, will provide a public biking system for people to access medical services, shopping; government agencies, parks, festivals, community events, and the Sacramento River Trail.
Bikeshare in Downtown is a clean mobility transportation. Identifying the mission, vision and purpose for the Shasta Bike Depot and Downtown Bikeshare is the work Anne Thomas and Shasta Living Streets.
Executive Director Thomas shares, “BCycle bikes and docking stations will deliver a safe, convenient, and easy to use bikeshare system for residents and business owners that we have hoped for in our community for years.”
BCycle was selected by Shasta Living Streets last spring through a competitive process. “We are thrilled that Shasta Living Streets, along with The McConnell Foundation and City of Redding, have selected BCycle to provide an e-bikeshare program in Redding,” said Brian Conger, of BCycle. “Redding is an ideal community for electric assist bike sharing. We’ve seen the positive impact of e-bikes in communities across the country and look forward to bringing the same benefits to Redding’s residents and visitors.”
Downtown Bikeshare is supported by a grant from the California Clean Mobility Options Program. “These statewide funds directly support disadvantaged communities, and communities of color, creating safe, clean, affordable transportation to get residents where they need to go,” California Air Resources Board Executive Officer Richard W. Corey said. “The Clean Mobility Options Program was designed to ensure that each project is developed to address a community’s own unique transportation issues – letting local community involvement identify sustainable transportation solutions.”
Downtown e-Bikeshare brings tremendous advantages to our community – it allows families to be healthy and save money on transportation, makes more vibrant and connected communities, and supports local businesses by helping them attract customers and retain staff.
BCycle offers product quality and expertise to maximize our customer experience by providing an attractive, high quality bicycle fleet, docks and technology in high traffic areas which will encourage ridership, will be easily findable and to check-out, and will result in community pride.
“We believe BCycle will be a vendor-partner that will help promote operational excellence and ensure that the Downtown Redding Bikeshare launch is successful,” added Thomas.
Biking must be easy, safe, and convenient for a majority of people to truly use a bike for transportation. What’s different with Electric Pedal-assist bikes? The pedal-assist makes a special difference in our spread-out and hilly region – by enabling people of all ages and abilities to ride comfortably and thus have a clean and active mobility option.
BCycle is the Best-Of-Class bicycle sharing company, a part of Trek Bicycles, headquartered in Wisconsin. bcycle.com
Redding joins 47 other major cities in the U.S. with BCycle bikeshare, including Santa Barbara, Houston, and Philadelphia.
All-electric pedal-assist bike fleet. Redding is one of a smaller set of cities that will have an all-electric pedal-assist bike fleet.
A docked bikeshare system. Downtown Redding Bikeshare will have a docked bikeshare system. The docks provide a designated space to park bikes securely.
Redding leads the way. Redding will have the first of this type of all-electric, docked bikeshare system between the San Francisco Bay Area and Portland, Oregon.
Ebikes can replace many car trips if we help people have an easy, safe, convenient ride. Ebikes are used for daily life and can replace car trips. The average length of an ebike trip is 9 miles. Shasta County’s Long Range Transit Plan shows most car trips in Shasta County are 5 miles or less.

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 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.

What if a bike depot, a lively eatery, and an active courtyard space could become a downtown experience?
Shasta Bike Depot
“When we give people the resources, skills and confidence they need to get around safely and conveniently by bike, they discover the ease and joy of bicycling. People in Redding and Shasta County aren’t just ready for this – they are excited about it,” Thomas said.
“The depot will be a visitor’s center for transit. It’s a ‘Start Here’ spot for biking and using trails in and around Redding and the North State,” shared Anne Thomas, who will manage the Shasta Bike Depot.
Located next to Redding’s downtown Transit Center, the depot will include a public bike parking garage, classes, community events, an e-bike charging station, guided e-bike tours, and e-bikeshare.
The vision of the depot is to offer amenities that create “comfort, convenience, and enjoyment, for the increasing number of people who choose to walk and bike to get where they want to go,” Thomas said. “This will be a place to find answers to questions, such as ‘Where do I ride?’ ‘What do I wear?’ ‘Where do I find people to ride with?’ ‘How do I put my bike on the bus?’”
“Programming the bike depot to complement the bike network improvements that the City of Redding, Caltrans and SRTA are undertaking is exciting. Imagine a family hopping on bikes near the Sundial Bridge, and easily getting to a downtown destination. Or a person who lives downtown being able to easily access the world-class Sacramento River Trail by bike,” said Rachel Hatch, Senior Program Officer for Community Vitality. “Downtowns that thrive, are those that are bikeable and walkable.”
Bicycle tourism is an important economic driver for the future of Redding, contributing $83 billion to the US economy annually. In addition, it’s a vital option for Redding residents to get around town.
Shasta Living Streets will operate and provide smart-city amenities and services for clean and active transportation, including:
Secure Bike Parking Garage, card-key entry managed
Downtown E-Bikeshare system
E-bike charging services
Support to City of REU’s E-bike rebate program
Encouragement events and activities
Safety education classes and workshops
E-bike 101 educational tours
Youth education classes, internships, and events
Bike Valet services at events
Pipeline Craft Taps
Kevin Flynn, founding partner of Pipeline Craft Taps and Kitchen, a gastropub-style restaurant located in Mount Shasta, is the operator of Pipeline Redding in Bell Plaza. Kevin is active in the community and has served as a board member of the Mt. Shasta Chamber of Commerce for a decade. Contributing to Kevin’s success is Mark Clure, his investor and Chief Acceleration Officer at Pipeline. Mark is a principal at Enso Wealth Management, and also serves on multiple regional community boards.
Recently married, Kevin and wife Myranda love food, wine, travel, spending time with family and everything outdoors. Mark and wife Robin value spending time with family and enjoying outdoor recreation.
“Mark and I both have family and friends in Redding. We saw the opportunity and potential for Bell Plaza immediately. Pipeline Mt. Shasta enjoys a loyal Shasta County customer base. We believe Siskiyou County residents will also be a loyal customer base in Redding,” shared Flynn. “If I closed my eyes and imagined being a part of Redding’s revitalization, Bell Plaza is the opportunity.”
What is Kevin’s hope for Pipeline Redding? “Happy customers. I am committed to success, and to collaborating with Redding’s partners in hospitality.”
Quality of Life and Place as Economic Development and Downtown Vitality
Key components of community vitality overlap in this project. Active lifestyles, local foods, adaptive reuse, surrounded by small businesses, housing, arts and culture.”
The Foundation made a 10-year funding commitment to Community Vitality in 2017. This property was the Foundation’s first downtown acquisition and is its first “ground-up” downtown development. The courtyard will be bicycle and pet-friendly. This project is a nod to a piece of Redding’s history at the former Bell Rooms site, while creating a new community amenity.
McConnell selected Trilogy Architecture as the project designer, with its long-term presence and focus downtown. Modern Building Company is the general contractor. The company has several projects under construction in Redding, and has historic restoration experience in Chico and North Carolina.
What a great celebration for a protected walk and bikeway that helps create a Connected City and advances our Trail Town
“AMAZING!!!!!” “I had no idea we had so many cycling fans!” “Our city needs more events like this.” Yes. Our community supports active living excellence in a big way!
Protected bikeways give people the safe space they need to ride a bike where they want to go.
On a hot July Thursday night, when half of Redding/Shasta was on vacation…. more than 2,000 people attended to check it out and to walk, ride, roll on the new trail and celebrate this milestone achievement together. This is the safe, connected route people have wanted for so long.
“It was like Copenhagen at rush hour!“
