Cycling Through Oakland: Telegraph Avenue Won't Be A Hellish Dragstrip For Bikes Much Longer


Just like the Wiggle in San Francisco, Oakland's Telegraph Avenue is finally going to get some much-needed love.

That's a good thing, as anyone who has ridden a bike on Telegraph Avenue knows, it's not designed for two wheels.

Some 1,200 cyclists use Telegraph Avenue on any given work day. Unfortunately it's a high-speed auto thoroughfare with no bike lanes for most of its length. The funny thing about Telegraph Avenue is that there's no reason for it to be a hellish dragstrip.
