Getting Bumped Off Caltrain? Take Action Here
Even as we honor the work of BIKES ONboard, led by Dr. Shirley Johnson’s fervor for bikes and transit, we continue to see bikes getting “bumped” off Caltrain every single day. What’s a “bump?” A “bump” is a term for when a passenger is denied boarding due to insufficient onboard bicycle capacity. Read about what to do if you’re bumped, get involved in our Caltrain campaign and check out the bump graph for this year.

Even World Champion Cyclists Need Better Bikeways
Evelyn Stevens is a world champion and Olympic cyclist. Like thousands of other local road bikers, she’s also a member of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. We sat down with her to hear more about what she thinks about biking in San Francisco, how biking in our city compares to New York City riding and why supporting bicycle advocacy and 8 to 80 bikeways is important — even if you’re a pro rider. Here’s what she has to say.
Statewide Action: Protected Bikeways Act
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and the California Bicycle Coalition's network of affiliates are working together to make riding a bike better in California. Last month, due to some quick statewide organizing and activism, Assemblymember Phil Ting's Protected Bikeways Act (AB 1193) unanimously passed the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee. This is an important step toward to making it easier for every community in to build more bikeways that are attractive for everyone from ages 8 to 80.
