SFBC Annual Membership Meeting & Polk Street Bike Ride

From SFBC:

Join us for a meeting to learn how the SF Bicycle Coalition is reaching its annual goals for promoting bicycling and share your feedback with the staff and board. We want to hear from you about how we’re doing and what we should be focusing on in 2013. Bring your bikes up the elevator.

Then join us for a fun bike ride to discuss the City’s upcoming plans to improve biking and walking on Polk street between Mcallister and Union Street. Funded by the 2011 Streets Bond, the City is looking for your ideas on how to improve safety on Polk Street and make it a more attractive place to spend time on. We’ll start in the SF Bicycle Coalition headquarters for a presentation of the history of Polk street and context of the city’s current efforts. A bike ride on the corridor will follow. See sfbike.org/polk for more information and to RSVP for the ride.
