1Strongly AgreeStrongly AgreeStrongly AgreeStrongly AgreeStrongly AgreeStrongly AgreeSFBC has shepherded many victories for cyclists, pedestrians, and transit users. These material gains, both the winning of infrastructure improvements and the development of a robust and accessible cycling culture, come ultimately from the members of the SFBC. The full potential of cycling culture and human-oriented infrastructure in San Francisco can only be reached by the dynamic, creative interaction of people in a democratically-managed organization. This means that new leadership opportunities should be regularly available through board term limits.

The SFBC, 10,000 members strong, is a crucial space for the practice of democracy over resources. As San Francisco values are under assault from many fronts, we can use that practice to resist the attacks on our most vulnerable neighbors and build a culture and infrastructure that will support the needs and hopes of everyone who bikes, walks, and takes transit in San Francisco. By bringing in more members with a supportive culture of democratic decision-making, we can build new coalitions with other communities, especially those who feel less welcomed by cycling culture and the introduction of cycling infrastructure in their neighborhoods.

When SFBC is capable of working with the many of San Francisco, we can help the city reach its potential for all.

Transparency and accountability to members are key parts of the decision-making process.
