Improve East-West Bike Routes on Cordova Ave, Green, Union, Del Mar Ave

Pasadena needs to improve its east-west bike routes! Cordova Ave has been considered for a road diet for some time ( and has had bike lanes installed on it east of Lake Ave. This has helped improve the safety of cyclists in that area. However, riding a bike in Pasadena is still intimidating to cyclists. Overall, Pasadena lacks good east-west routes for cyclists.

We petition the City of Pasadena to extend bike lanes on Cordova Ave west of Lake Ave and to consider installing bike lanes on the very wide one-way streets Green St and Union St. In addition, we ask Pasadena to consider creating a separated bike lane on Del Mar Ave to improve the use of this route for cyclists. These improvements will create an east-west bike corridor and help make streets safer for everyone - cyclists, pedestrians, and cars alike.

Far from being a rare activity, the city of Pasadena has large pedestrian and bicyclist population. Almost 20% of Caltech faculty and students ride their bike to work (51% of Caltech students and 30% of faculty walk to work). In addition, many students at PCC also bike. The City of Pasadena needs to step up its efforts to ensure pedestrian and bicyclist safety in the city.

      Additionally, we need routes to the western city limits. The Colorado street bridge and Colorado to Eagle Rock is more than wide enough to add bike lanes. Other options south of the 134 involve a decent into and climb out of the Arroyo, which may be prohibitive to many riders.
