Your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition membership has been renewed! Thank you! As an SF Bicycle Coalition member, you're contributing to San Francisco's vibrant community and investing in making San Francisco a great city to live, work and bike. Together we are transforming our streets into safer and more comfortable places to ride everyday.
For over 40 years, members like you have helped to make our streets safer. Your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition has worked hard to create bike friendly streets like 17th and Valencia Streets, bridge gaps in our bicycle network like Fell and Oak Streets and improve your ride with smooth pavement on Market Street. As an SF Bicycle Coalition member, you've strengthened the voice of thousands of members calling for bike-friendly streets all over town.
Your official SF Bicycle Coalition membership card will be mailed this week, and it should arrive within 7-10 business days. If you do not receive your membership card within two weeks, please contact us.
Below, I've enclosed some information about your membership benefits, ways to get involved and links to some of our valuable resources and services. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments or just to say hello!
