SAN FRANCISCO BICYCLE COALITION
September 9, 2008

what isn't great about the San Francisco Bike Coalition? They are super star bike advocates in the community, and shining examples for other bike organizations around the globe! not only do they try and get everyone on a bike, they make their volunteers feel like family. i've been a volunteer for almost 3 years now, and i wouldn't change a thing. the volunteer nights every 2nd and 4th wednesday is fun, interactive, and allows you to be a part of the bigger picture. and being apart of that inspires you to get more people involved. i love getting my friends to join the cause.

The Great!

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

the bike lanes i ride everyday.

Ways to make it better...

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

not be nearly as organized and amazing as the staff that runs it right now.

More feedback

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

the feeling of being excepted into a family

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

amazing. hands down best people ever.

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

get every man, woman, and child on a bike.

Ways to make it better...

The city didn't put that damn injunction on the bike plan... grrr...

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

the bike plan injunction, and some ignorant city leaders, and citizens.

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

everyone in the city should volunteer at least once if they haven't yet. you;ll fall in love with the SFBC too.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & festival outreach, stuffing, folding, writing, bike loving.
