Sunday bureaucrats on bikes tour

If you see a bunch of bureaucrats on bikes touring Oakland Sunday it’s just a delegation of European officials who are supposed to bring their street smarts to the Bay Area, which would like to be so pedal-friendly as Belgium and Holland. Bikes are popping up all over Oakland these days, especially around West Grand and Tel. But there are no bike lanes or other infrastructure to support the increased use of non-auto transportation or make sure the bicyclists and motorists are doing their part to keep to keep everyone respectful and safe in/on their respective form of transportation.  If you want to chime in or ride along, the event begins 1 p.m. at Bay Area Bikes, 437 Water St., Jack London Square. At 2 p.m. begins the bike tour with the delegation + City Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan and Jason Patton, Oakland bicycle-ped program director.
