As many of you know, I sit on the Board of the Silicon Valley Bike Coalition (SVBC) and have for a few years. When I first joined the Board, I knew little about the amazing things this organization does. As all of you know, I love to ride and like all other cyclists, there are things that will make my ride more enjoyable, safer and are an assets to our entire community. This is true for those who ride for fun, exercise, sport or as a method of transportation (or all three at once) and even for those with whom we share the road. What is out mission? "Our purpose is to create a healthy community, environment, and economy through bicycling for people who live, work, or play in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties." In other words, we want to make our communities stronger by getting BUTTS ON BIKES!
