Cannot login to iPhone app using BTW username/password

Downloaded the iPhone app last night and was able to connect it to Facebook, but not login using my BTW username/password. Can anybody confirm that this is actually working. Is it not supposed to work until May or???

BART and Bikes

We have a coworker who rides BART from Pittsburg/Antioch to MacArthur BART. He'd like to ride from there to work. Will BART allow regular bikes?

Berkeley - Urban Assault Ride Scavenger Hunt

Andrew Casteel —

The Urban Assault Ride™ is a truly unique cycling event and quickly becoming one of the biggest in country! Here's how it works: You and your teammate will set out on a quest around Berkeley for 'checkpoints' on your favorite two-wheeled steeds. At each checkpoint, you'll drop your bikes and complete a funky/adventurous obstacle course guided by EBBC volunteers, then remount your bikes and hit the streets for more. The goal is to complete all the checkpoints in the shortest amount of time. You choose your own route and checkpoint order. This means that the most clever are often the victors. Of course, it may also help if you can pull a mean big-wheel powerslide and fly across an inflatable slip-n-slide. Benefiting: East Bay Bicycle Coalition and Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay.

Bike City Oakland

Andrew Casteel —

Despite a still-developing network of bike routes and an unfortunate abundance of potholes, Oakland boasts the 7th highest number of bike commuters in the country with slightly more than two percent of the population riding a bike to work. The city ranks a notch below Washington D.C. and just above Tucson. Portland, it will be no surprise to learn, is at the top of the list with nearly six percent of that city’s residents pedaling through the rain to work.

Bike-Go-Round is setting out to spread the self-propelled mantra, not in Rockridge or Claremont, but in East and West Oakland, favorite targets of the fast food industry, where obesity and cars meet at large intersections lacking bike lanes and bike-friendly establishments. Funded in part by a $150,000 grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, Bike-Go-Round, a Cycles of Change project, will give away 400 bikes and training to low-income Oaklanders through December.
