In late October, Walmart took a positive step to support bicycling by building on-street bike infrastructure in front of their San Leandro, California store as part of a remodel. PeopleForBikes advised on the project and the retail giant worked closely with local advocacy group Bike East Bay and city transportation staff on the improvements. "San Leandro has a vibrant cycling community and advocacy leader in Bike East Bay," said PeopleForBikes Vice President of Business Network Jenn Dice. "This bike lane is an important step to integrate bicycling into Walmart customers’ lifestyles and to encourage store associates to bike to work. Our hope is that the San Leandro store inspires other retailers to incorporate bike lanes into development plans."
