We are excited to share the news that the San José Bike Clinic has become a fiscally sponsored project of SVBC!
What does this mean? It means that the Clinic now has nonprofit status and the backing of SVBC’s existing infrastructure, allowing this impressive group of dedicated volunteers to take Bike Clinic to the next level! Bike Clinic will be looking to all of their supporters over the next year to help them design and deliver programs, raise funds, recruit volunteers, and put in time and energy to help move Bike Clinic forward. We hope you’ll join the effort!
San José Bike Clinic's mission continues to be “to provide a shared space for bicycle repair and education and to build a robust and diverse cycling community in San José.” Bike Clinic was founded in January 2012 by a grassroots group of bicycling enthusiasts, and has achieved a lot already.
Some of the next goals on the road map for the project are to recruit more volunteers, continue to put on Mobile Bike Clinic events and community bike rides, raise funds to buy tools and equipment, save up capital, and open our doors in downtown San José. Want to help?
Please contact SJBikeClinic@gmail.com if you’d like to be informed about volunteer opportunities, upcoming planning meetings, Mobile Bike Clinic repair events, or planned community-building rides. Tell us what you’d like to know or how you’d like to plug in, and we’ll add you to the right email list.
We also have a Wish List on the project's website, and we would be grateful for any donations, large or small.
