Cycletopia is our pop-up protected bikeway demonstration. This is our favorite way to show the good people of Mountain View how safe cycling can be. We call it Cycletopia because we think cycling in a network of protected bikeways would be utopic.

Thanks to our friends at Great Streets Mountain View for the articles!
Contact us if you'd like us to do a demonstration bikeway for you in Mountain View, or if you'd like to rent our fold-up planter boxes, easels and posters so you can do a pop-up demonstration in your own city. Here's our inventory of supplies (warning: it's a clunky spreadsheet with links to photos). Contact us for an order form. Please order supplies at least two weeks before your event. Note: as an entirely volunteer-run organization who has no dedicated staff, it might take more than one attempt before one of our voulunteers gets back to you. Thank you for your patience! We really are happy to help you spread the bicycle love!!
More events where our planter boxes have made a special appearance:
October 2018 - Redwood City’s pop-up protected bikeway on El Camino.
August 2017- San Jose's two-way protected bikeway demonstration on Fourth Street. Lots of media coverage on this one!
April 2016 - Palo Alto Pop-up Bikeway on Park Blvd
We'd love you to add your city to the list!
