On Saturday October 19 come on a free bike ride on the Bay Trail, end at the Purity Wine: Study Wine Bar in Richmond and stay for a wine flight if you like! This highly rideable, BART-able group ride will include mentions of a few winemakers to motivate you to explore our rich community of artisans practicing their craft while quenching our thirst. Ride is FREE but please register. We launch from West Oakland BART at 3pm.  Pre-pay for your $20 wine flight when you register here.
PAINT THE TOWN EVENTS
September saw two new installations in Oakland's Paint The Town Project!  On Saturday 9/7 a large crew of volunteers came together in East Oakland to paint the 90th Ave/Plymouth intersection with the logo of local organization The Original Scraper Bike Team


And on Saturday and Sunday 9/21-22 North Oakland neighbors joined up to decorate the Ayala/Martin intersection with trees, butterflies and rivers.  A great time was had by all at both events!



SLOW OAKLAND FORUM
WOBO is bringing together Oakland leaders of community groups to participate in a discussion to brainstorm ways the Slow Oakland campaign can rally diverse supports around reducing speeding and eliminating dangerous driving behaviors.  This event is slated for the evening of October 23. Reach out to us if you know someone from an organization who would like to learn more and to help shape our campaign.
