Local Teams

If you would like to get involved in bicycle advocacy in your area, consider attending a meeting of one of our local teams. Come join us to meet your cycling neighbors and get involved in local bike advocacy! Policy suggestions from the local teams will be submitted to the SVBC Policy Advisory Committee and help shape our advocacy efforts. We’ll also plan for fun events and work on strategies to expand and improve bike facilities in and around the host cities.

For specific meeting times and locations for our Local Teams, please see our calendar.
