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.
