SVBC Winter Party

From SVBC:

It’s that time of the year again, when SVBC members convene at good old Palo Alto Bicycles to catch up on this year’s happenings and next year’s endeavors. This annual, members-only party is the place to be if you are a long-time SVBC member, someone who recently joined, or for all of you who have been yearning to become part of the SVBC posse that advocates for more bicycling in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.

As always, we will welcome you with food, drinks, cool bike gear up for auction, and some bike talk. And did I mention that it’s FREE for SVBC members! If you’ve let things lapse we will happily assist you in renewing at the door, or you can click here to renew online. First-timers are welcome, too; new members are always appreciated!

Voting for new Board of Directors members will also take place at the party. Details on the election will be posted to the SVBC website shortly.
Valet bike parking will be provided in the parking lot behind Palo Alto Bicycles.

Here are just some samples of great buys that will be in the Winter Party auction (starting way below MSRP!):

  • Tifosi Tyrant Sunglasses
  • CamelBak Hydration packs
  • Kali Helmets
  • Optics Pivlock V 90 sunglasses
  • Light & Motion helmet light system
  • Gore Bike Wear jerseys
  • TRP Brakes: Road Performance R950SL
  • Novara Transfer Pannier
  • On Guard Locks

We hope to see you all on Thursday, December 8!

In Silicon Valley, an Emerging Bike Movement

Editor’s note: This story marks the return of former Streetsblog San Francisco editor Bryan Goebel, who will be contributing occasional pieces.   Bicycle advocacy can be an especially daunting challenge in the South Bay and the Peninsula, where car-centric policies and culture rule the day.
