Pedal-assist electric bikes are coming to a Berkeley docking station near you. And they're likely to be popular. In San Francisco, e-bikes get roughly three times as many rides as regular pedal bikes.
More than a third of nearly 1,200 votes in Berkeleyside's non-scientific poll of worst paved streets in Berkeley went to one street. And, yes, we have video.

Many Berkeley streets are in disrepair, bumpy and deteriorating. Which street do you think is the worst? And don't miss the map to show which streets are in the queue for repaving.

Station agents and customers say John Allen is personable, witty and kind. Cards and letters for him can be sent to an address posted on his newspaper stand.

It's one year late in opening and there are still a few missing elements, but finally construction crews have left and the new plaza has been unveiled. The relief was palpable at the grand opening celebration.
The renovated plaza will have café tables and chairs, new trees, a sculpture, a sound installation, and a stage for the dozen of live performances planned each month.
Electric-assist bikes are in San Francisco but you won't be seeing them in Berkeley or Oakland for a while due to a deal struck with Ford GoBike's parent company Motivate.
