The Bay Trail and Covid-19
The State of California has issued a shelter-in-place order to slow the spread of Covid-19. If you find the need to be outdoors for physical and mental well-being, State and local health officials are recommending that you walk, run, hike, and bike in your own neighborhood and local parks while practicing social distancing of at least 6 feet. If you find that you’re unable to maintain 6-feet of social distancing, find another location where the 6-foot distance can be maintained to protect your health and the health of your family and community.
Richmond-San Rafael Bridge Opens to Cyclists and Pedestrians
On Saturday, November 16, 2019 a new section of the Bay Trail opened on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge allowing first time access for cyclists and pedestrians on the span. Since that time, the 6-mile stretch proved popular during its first year-and-a-half with over 100,000 crossings to date! The opening is part of a pilot program that will use counts of cyclists and pedestrians as a factor in whether the trail becomes permanent. This page will highlight organized walks and rides on the bridge.
Wednesday, April 7th @ 7:30 pm: Bay Trail Confidential #6 will talk about the historic town of Alviso, a fascinating place to visit in the South Bay. And Rodney will be joined by a fellow Oracle Park tour guide to share insider information on the Bay Trail’s only ballpark (at least for now). The theme of our monthly photography contest will be flowers and other vegetation on or near the Bay Trail. Click here for information on entering.
