San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Looking for Help with "Big 56 for Bikes" Advocacy Campaign
|February 17, 2009||Posted by jamie under Activism||
As you may or may not know, the City and County of San Francisco has not been able to make any progress on creating additional bike lanes since a court injunction in mid-2006 courtesy of one dude with his shorts in a knot.
There’s a chance that implementation of the City’s updated Bike Plan may resume this spring/summer, and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is recruiting help to gather signatures and advocate for the implementation of the 56 bike projects in the plan (thus, the campaign’s name “The Big 56 for Bikes.”
A kickoff for SFBC members happens on Tuesday …
Mark February 17 on your calendar for an important SFBC all-member meeting to launch our Big 56 for Bikes campaign to win more bike lanes! This is your moment to help with the biggest push for bike lanes yet.
The much anticipated environmental review on the Bike Plan should be complete by this Spring, which means 56 bike improvement projects to complete the Citywide Bike Network–The Big 56 for Bikes–will be up for consideration by City decision-makers. We are asking you to be a part of the campaign that will bring San Francisco the bike improvements it needs.
All SFBC members are urged to come out for this important kick-off event:
When: Tuesday, February 17, 6:30-8:00pm
Where: First Baptist Church, 22 Waller Street (at Octavia/Market); free bike valet provided
Why: Win the Big 56 for Bikes!
RSVP: sfbike.org/56rsvp (If you can’t join us on the 17th, we still need your help! Please sign up for the Big 56 for Bikes campaign at sfbike.org/56signup.)
