Keep Up the Momentum for Bike Month
Rainbow Grocery Discount Back in June!
We are thrilled to share that in the month of June, Rainbow Grocery Cooperative, Inc. will bring back their discount for SF Bicycle Coalition members! Rainbow discontinued their discount program two years ago, but they’ve continued to be supporters of our advocacy work, providing the food for monthly volunteer nights and at outreach events throughout the city.
Vision Zero Gains Momentum
We’re excited to welcome Tyler Frisbee as our new Policy Director. Tyler comes to the SF Bicycle Coalition with a wealth of experience in transportation policy. For the last five years, Tyler worked as an aide to Congressman Earl Blumenauer and serving as Congress’s main bike advocate. Previous to that she worked at 1,000 Friends of Oregon and founded a nonprofit, Vote Clamantis, to engage college students in the presidential primary process. She now lives in San Francisco’s Lower Haight, and when she’s not biking can be found hiking, attempting to grow tomato plants and baking.
Building on the success of our largest ever Bike and Roll to School Week (66 schools and 3,000+ participants!), the Safe Routes to Schools program is expanding. The SF Safe Routes to School Partnership is seeking two seasoned organizers to increase the number of families walking and biking to school. Positions will reside at Walk San Francisco and San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. Hours: Full-time, flexible. For more information, download the job description (PDF). Application deadline is Friday, May 30, 2014.
