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.

Sharrows for the Santa Cruz-Alameda de las Pulgas “Y”

New green bike “sharrows” (shared-lane markings) have been installed on Santa Cruz Avenue and Alameda de las Pulgas in the vicinity of the “Y”, a primary bike route between Stanford on the south and mid-Menlo Park on the north that is well-known as being extremely hazardous for people biking. These sharrows are a result of the work of an ad hoc Menlo Park advocacy group as well as the support of San Mateo County Supervisor Don Horsley and the County’s Department of Public Works.
