My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, San Jose, CA, USA
I first heard about SVBC when I participated in my first Bike to Work Day back in 2005. I very much respected their passion for cycling, people, and wanting to keep two wheeled pedal power growing in our bay area. I also was very much involved with cycling through the team management side and decided to try and join the Board in 2010.
My involvement with SVBC has and continues to be a rewarding experience for me. From my observations, SVBC makes every attempt to have complete transparency in its business practices and adheres to its governance and policies. I look forward to seeing what 2011 brings with respect to engaging the different bike communities and bringing them towards helping us making the roads safer for all.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Anything related to local bike legislation, making the roads safer (by better markings/striping), as well as Bike to Work Day.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Figure out ways to better engage the enormous cycling community that knows so little about the SVBC
