Happy Bay area Bike to Work Day! In honor of our local holiday (OK so it’s not a real vacation, but certainly a vacation from our cars, right?), we wanted to get Bay area people caught up with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, an important organization that is leading the charge for bikers in San Francisco.
We have a program here at Clif Bar & Company called Project 2080 where we collectively donate at least 2,080 hours to our favorite causes throughout the year. Tina Reid works on the LUNA Experience Marketing Team at Clif Bar, supporting LUNAFEST (our traveling film festival by, for, about women) and Team LUNA Chix. I caught up with her on all things SFBC and her rewarding experiences working with the organization. Enjoy!
Chris: What is the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition all about?
Tina: The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is an 11,000 member-based advocacy organization dedicated to creating safer streets and more livable communities for San Franciscans. The SFBC is responsible for bicycle access on the Golden Gate Bridge, bicycle access on mass transit, 201 miles of bike lanes/paths in San Francisco and working with City Hall on a citywide bike plan to increase bicycle transportation to 10% for all city trips.
