Better Biking

SVBC has set a goal to see 10% of trips by bike by 2025. To that end, we work strategically in six broad advocacy initiatives that govern our main campaigns and that we believe will help us achieve our mission to create a healthy community, environment, and economy through bicycling for people who live, work, or play in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. See below for more information on these Initiatives as well as regional, state, and federal policy; general info about Bikeway Design; and how to Advocate for bike issues in your community.
