SVBC Bike Summit

From SVBC [1]:

Please join Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition and Stanford Hospital & Clinics for an in-depth discussion on ways that governments, law enforcement, and advocates can work together to create safe, welcoming environments for bicyclists.

This community-building annual event will take place on February 26, from 11:45 to 4:30, at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto. Click here [2] to register for this great event.

We are excited to welcome our two guest speakers:

The event will also feature a panel of local experts and innovators who will discuss recent progress in making our roads safer for all users. The panel will discuss infrastructure, education efforts and strategies for improving the behavior of both people on bikes and people in cars.

Admission is $25. A light lunch will be provided. Scholarships are available for those to whom the cost of admission is prohibitive. Please contact colin@bikesiliconvalley.org [3] to apply for a scholarship.
