We are proud to announce that Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition’s Executive Director, Shiloh Ballard, is being honored by Senator Jim Beall as a 2019 Woman of the Year.

Senator Beall has selected Shiloh as the “Trailblazer Honoree” stating that Shiloh has blazed the way for bicycle advocacy by elevating the profile and effectiveness of Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition.

This is particularly noteworthy because Senator Beall is one of the State’s most powerful transportation leaders in his role as Chair of the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee. Thank you Senator Beall for recognizing the important role of Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition and our Executive Director, Shiloh Ballard in improving the community, economy and environment through the everyday use of the bicycle.

Senator Beall will be honoring six women to celebrate Women’s History Month. Click here for details about the public reception on March 1.
