SAN FRANCISCO BICYCLE COALITION
August 27, 2008

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is one of the most influential non profit organizations in our city. They are a growing and powerful group that maintains their grass roots style of advocacy to get results. In this era of rising fuel costs and environmental awareness, the SFBC is making a difference today. Of all the ways I can contribute to creating a more sustainable environment for myself, my neighbors and my children, I feel like the SFBC is one of the most effective and well directed uses of my resources. They have a truly committed staff and are actively pursuing many important programs to better our community by promoting the bicycle for everyday use. If you’ve ever ridden on a bike lane, or enjoyed the Car Free Saturdays in Golden Gate Park, then you too have benefited from the work of the SFBC. They share my vision of creating a cleaner, safer and more humane environment for us to all enjoy. The bicycle is just the tool available to help us get there today. One of my proudest accomplishments has been to serve on the board of this great organization and I urge anyone who is even thinking about getting on two wheels to learn for themselves what the SFBC is doing for the community.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My commute to work was once like playing Russian Roulette with car traffic. Now there are safe bike lanes on all but one street of my commute.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Keep the office tidy.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Working with volunteers at streetside events.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The most commited, energetic well rounded, and intelligent people I have ever worked with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help implemement a newer and more robust city wide bicycle network very soon. This would help clean the air, quiet the streets, and reduce conjestion. Why must we wait?

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to devote to this organization.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Overcomming the city wide bike plan injunction!

One thing I'd also say is that...

I love all the staff!
