SVBC Office Bike Move

"It’s official, SVBC will be moving to a new office in San Jose on Saturday, September 4, and we’d love to do a bike move to show the community how fun this can be. In order to accomplish this, we’ll need a lot of volunteers (we have a lot of stuff!). We will need folks with bikes and trailers who can help transport our things for about 3 miles. If you don’t have a trailer (or can’t borrow one) we’ll still need your help to load and unload. Plus, this can be your chance to get your hands on a trailer of your own.Our friends at Burley have given us a brand new Burley Travoy trailer to use at our bike move, which we’ll be giving away to one of our lucky volunteers. So if you’ve been wanting to have your own trailer, or you would like to upgrade to a new one, this is your chance."
