Better Biking

SVBC has set a goal to see 10% of trips be by bike by 2025. To that end, we work strategically in the following five broad initiatives that govern our main campaigns and that we believe will lead to more people on bikes and a healthier and safe environment for bicycles. We also focus on other issues that influence the region’s bike friendliness.
SVBC Policy Advisory Committee

The Policy Advisory Committee comprises four Board members and four SVBC members who are appointed for a yearly term. The group discusses local biking policy issues of interest to SVBC and advises the SVBC Board and staff on positions. Meetings are open to current SVBC members and are generally held the fourth Tuesday of the month. See our calendar for more information.

How you can help improve bicycling in your community

Do you want to get involved in improving bicycling in your community? Then consider joining one of our Local Teams! These teams are made up of people who bike in a particular city or region and meet monthly to discuss relevant issues such as new bike infrastructure, events, social rides, and city policies and plans. Check out our calendar to find details about the next local team meeting near you!

Policy suggestions from the Local Teams can be submitted to the SVBC Policy Advisory Committee (see above) and help shape our advocacy efforts.
