#DamienTalks 39 – Big Bad Bike to Work Day in the East Bay with David Campbell
This week, #DamienTalks with Dave Campbell of Bike East Bay. According to Melanie Curry, Bike East Bay runs the “biggest, baddest Bike to Work Day in the world.”
Earlier this month, she wrote, “What’s indisputable is that Bike East Bay, then known as the East Bay Bicycle Coalition, kicked off its first Bike to Work Day in 1994 and, in the 22 years since then, the event has grown ever more popular amid a rapid increase in bike commuting. In Oakland alone, bike commuting has tripled in the last twelve years, according to the U.S. Census.”
While Campbell was more than happy to talk about the history of Bike Month in the East Bay, he didn’t use the words “biggest” or “baddest” in his interview. To hear more about one of the best Bike Month programs I’ve ever heard of and its impact on bicycling in Oakland, Berkeley and beyond, check out this week’s podcast below.
