Executive Director Corinne Winter was recently interviewed for an article in Self Magazine about the healthiest American cities for women. The article was also released on MSNBC.com:
4. Safest: San Jose, Calif.
These big-city streets remain small-town safe, with one-third fewer violent crimes and nearly 60 percent fewer fatal car crashes than average. Wide sidewalks and bike lanes help, says Corinne Winter, 33, executive director of the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition. “My goal is for people to be able to get around safely however they want to, whether they are 8 or 80,” she says.
At SVBC, we've long felt that women are an indicator species for the health of cycling. As Corinne points out, good cycling conditions also makes for healthy women.
