Summer Camps
Multi-day and one-day camps teach students the safe bicycling skills they need to ride around their neighborhood. Students learn how to signal, shoulder check, follow the rules of the road, and practice bike handling skills.
Upcoming Camps
If funds are not available for a camp at this time, would your organization consider funding a session itself?

Costs range from $200-500 for classroom sessions and from $2000-3000 for on-the-bike camps.

Walk It before Planning It! – A New Take on the Safe Routes To School Planning Meeting.

What a great experience! On Tuesday, October 24, 2017, a slew of stakeholders (parents, school trustee’s, school representatives, Gilroy Engineering department, SVBC, and etc.) woke up early (arrived by 7:20am) for a beautiful and brisk walk around the school’s wider block. Usually a walk audit is undertaken by SCCPH and the school staff as part of organizing a SRTS Planning Meeting, but asking all stakeholders of the planning meeting to also be involved in a walk audit before the Planning Meeting was definitely a treat!
Participants were able to watch firsthand some crosswalks where Crossing Guards were already assisting children to cross busy intersections, but we heard that there still remained some serious safety concerns. It was more than that; physically observing parents U-Turn randomnly around a corner or just rolling through yet another crosswalk – it made me (a parent, Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition (SVBC) employee, and someone from outside the community), stand up and be concerned!
