Talk about people power! With well over 500 survey responses and dozens of members participating in meetings, a happy hour and a walking tour, our campaign for protected bike lanes on Valencia Street continues building momentum. Help pedal us forward and join us for our next Valencia Member Committee on Thursday, May 31.
Our survey gave us key information on how those biking use the corridor and where issues arise. Survey respondents identified three major intersections of concern at Duboce, 14th and 16th. These intersections can pose dangers for people on bicycles making left turns. Survey respondents also reported cars cutting into the bike lane while making right turns. We need your help to envision changes that eliminate issues like these and make Valencia safe for everyone.
Now that we’ve heard from our members on key concerns and walked the corridor with City planners, it’s time to regroup and chart next steps. This meeting will focus on putting together an inclusive strategy to make sure we get the best, most bike-friendly project with as many stakeholders as possible engaged. Come out to the meeting to connect with other dedicated members who want to make big changes in the near- and long-term.
