From the Executive Director

Can you feel it? Folsom. 17th. Upper Market. We’re changing our streets, block by block.

Your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is fighting for more protected bike lanes and introducing thousands to the joys of bicycling. And it’s not just talk. This has been a record-breaking year for protected bike lanes, with over five miles constructed in 2018 alone. We’re measuring progress toward our strategic goals and objectives and sharing it with you on this dashboard.

Can we count on your support to help us bring more positive change on our streets in the year ahead?

Here’s what’s changed

Changing our streets:

From Townsend to Turk, Valencia to Upper Market, Howard to 17th, Masonic to the Hairball, and so many more, together we’ve won incredible on-the-ground victories in 2018.

Changing who rides:

In collaboration with Bayview Hunters Point Mobilization for Adolescent Growth in our Communities (BMAGIC), we distributed 60 bikes in a single day at our largest-ever Community Bike Build.

Changing how Uber and Lyft use our streets:

We successfully advocated for Governor Brown’s signature on Assembly Bill 1184, the first step towards holding Uber and Lyft accountable for the impact their vehicles have on congestion, roads and safety.

Changing commutes:

This year’s Bike to Work Day and Bike and Roll to School Week events were our biggest yet, and welcomed thousands of new riders to the joy of riding for everyday transportation.

Double parking? There’s an app for that

We’ve told the City for years there needs to be an easy way for people biking to report cars double-parking, dropping off passengers, and stopping for deliveries in the bike lane. In 2018, the City listened, and the 311 system added a new feature on their mobile app allowing you to do just that.

Unwavering advocacy for Upper Market

When City support for Upper Market bike lanes wobbled, our members let them know that safety is non-negotiable. Thanks to your help, we won SFMTA board approval, then defeated an appeal that threatened the project.

I love riding my bike and enjoy so many positive benefits from biking. I also want to help communities have more bike infrastructure so they feel safe and are more motivated to use a bicycle as a primary mode of transportation.

Biking the vote

When presented with a chance to make smart decisions about our city’s future, San Franciscans overwhelmingly said yes to a more sustainable and welcoming city. The majority of our endorsed candidates won, and we will work together to advocate for safer streets and address our homelessness crisis.

Funding the Bay Bridge bike path

Your support helped pass Regional Measure 3 in June, bringing in millions for more bike infrastructure, more Muni and BART cars, and potential support for a bike path on the western span of the Bay Bridge, poised to be the Bay Area’s most iconic, signature bicycle project in history.

Witnessing how much force is behind the staff, members and volunteers in advocating for safe streets in San Francisco convinced me that membership was worth it. For me, cycling in cities that don’t have the same level of advocacy for safe streets is jarring and terrifying.

Building people power

More than 20 members attended a day-long training to become member-champions in our campaigns. Using case studies and interactive activities, we taught the group how to identify issues, develop campaign strategy and become effective advocates for change in our city.

A team of tireless organizers

From the Presidio to Crocker Amazon and from Outer Sunset to the Bayview, our three talented community organizers work closely with our members, local stakeholders, City staff and elected officials throughout San Francisco to advance better streets in all our neighborhoods and encourage more people to bike.

Serena-Gupta-1000x500-web

I think almost every woman — at many points in her life, but especially when she starts biking in a city — is told to ‘be safe.’ It is, of course, important to be safe, but I think as we get more women biking, it will become more apparent that safety is important for everyone biking, not just women.

Bike share for all

Extensive community outreach in early 2018 provided people with access to equitable transportation through discounted Ford GoBike memberships and other biking resources. Twenty-one percent of all Ford GoBike members are Bike Share for All members through a program we conceived of and won.

Championing Bike and Roll to School Week

Thousands of students and families from 90 schools citywide traveled to school together on bicycles, scooters and other people-powered wheels. The annual Bike and Roll to School week in April inspires students and families to make a healthy habit of biking to school.

If this program didn’t exist the bicycles would be unused or scrapped. Community Bike Builds exemplify the best of the Bay Area ethos and dedication to social justice.
