Review for Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

As a passionate advocate for cycling, I have watched this organization grow tremendously. Several times I was asked to join the board and I declined because I did not have the time to devote to an organization that had not yet reached a sufficient level of professionalism. That has changed significantly under the tenure of the current ED. What started as a small grassroots nonprofit is now a credible voice for cycling in Silicon Valley, one that is bringing cycling into the mainstream. As a result, I eventually changed my mind and the last time they asked me to join the board, I agreed, viewing it as a good investment of my time and a way to be impactful on issues I care about.

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

many ways.

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

Increase its budget so that it can do more and better work!

Role:  Board Member & I serve as a board member and helped with the annual fundraiser as well as Bike to Work Day.
