About BPAC

Our Vision

We are an organization of people who prefer biking and walking. We support cycling for transportation and recreation.

We envision a Richmond where local schoolchildren and residents can safely shop and travel around the city by bicycle and foot as well as commuting safely by bicycle.

All residents can reach their favorite gathering spots, address daily needs, and access government & transit without having to get into a car.

Visitors from around the world, arriving by BART, AMTRAK or bus, can safely bicycle to our scenic shoreline and other spots of interest.

The Richmond Homefront and our magnificent shoreline areas are best seen by bike. Destinations like the Bay Trail, the Richmond Greenway, Pt. Pinole Regional Shoreline and Rosie the Riveter National Park are easily reached by bicycle from the Richmond BART station.

The Richmond BPAC (RBPAC) was formed in 2008 to allow the community to work in partnership with the City of Richmond, California.

Our Mission

We promote local, commuter and recreational cycling and walking in Richmond and improve the safety of cyclists and walkers on our roads.

We provide input and feedback to the City on cycling and pedestrian infrastructure by reviewing plans and prioritizing projects.

We undertake various cycling education and awareness activities in co-operation with the City.

The Public is invited to join us.

Our Goal

We support a connected network of bikeways with three tiers:

  • seamless connections with regional bikeways and surrounding cities.

  • safe circulation by bicycle and foot around the city of Richmond.

  • continuous circulation within the neighborhoods by bicycle and by foot.

We strongly support the formation and activities of other cycling and walking organizations in Richmond.

RBPAC is a fiscally sponsored project of the Bike East Bay which is a California 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Donations to EBBC are tax-deductible and can be earmarked for the RBPAC. Please contact us to make a donation.
