SFBC Biker Bulletin
November 19, 2003
"Since the bicycle makes little demand on material or energy resources, contributes little to pollution, makes a positive contribution to health and causes little death or injury, it can be regarded as the most benevolent of machines."
Stuart S. Wilson, Oxford University
SFBIKE.org reborn with new features, updated look!
The cyber velorution takes a new turn with the introduction of the new and improved SFBC website! All the resources, up-to-date news and happenings you've come to love, in a beautiful and easy-to-use format, thanks to the efforts of Sebastian Denef, our German exchange student & web savant. Check out the many new features, including:
Matt Gonzalez is within striking distance of winning the Mayor's race, as polls show him neck-and-neck with the other, more conservative candidate. The League of Conservation Voters put their strength behind Matt this week, joining the SFBC, Sierra Club, Tenant's Union, Harvey Milk Club & Michael Moore, among many others. The Gonzalez campaign is rapidly growing, with new Chinatown & Bayview offices opening this week, and 100 house parties planned for the next 30 days. Learn more, donate and sign up for Matt's volunteer email list at http://www.mattgonzalez.com today!
We're mobilizing our members to help Matt Gonzalez become the city's next Mayor, and we need your help to succeed! Here's a short list of things you can do to help Matt win!
Like too many bike projects in San Francisco, the lovely new bike lanes on Fell St are only sanctioned on a "trial" basis, subject to final approval by the Board of Supervisors a few months from now. Our campaign to ensure that this valuable flat route to the Panhandle sticks around continues this Sunday, November 23rd with a special outreach event in the Panhandle. We'll be the asking the many passing bikers for their support as we try to ensure that the Fell St bike lane stays put. Our efforts will continue in the upcoming weeks during the morning & evening commute hours - so if you can't help Sunday, contact us to schedule another time you're free. If you like talking to people, this is the perfect volunteer job for you! Lend a hand, and help this vital lane gain permanent status, by contacting Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org or 431-2453x21. We appreciate your support!
We certainly think so. Help fulfill your bike's destiny by sending us a photo of you & your trusty steed - and we might use it on the revamped sfbike.org. We prefer images with a neutral, bright background. Send your picture and a brief description of why you like biking to email@example.com today!
Yes, it's time for another issue of the SFBC's bimonthly print newsletter to hit mailboxes all over town. Join us at a special volunteer night next Tuesday, as we work to get 2003's last issue out before Thanksgiving strikes. Naturally, we'll continue our tradition of providing tasty snacks, with a special focus on hearty vegan (or almost vegan) fruit pies for this annual holiday volunteer night. Come on down to SFBC HQ, 1095 Market St, Suite 215, from 5-9pm, next Tuesday, November 25th. (Please note - there will be *no* Volunteer Night on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving!) Daytime volunteers are still very much appreciated this week and next as well! To lend a hand or ask any questions, contact Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org or 431-BIKEx21.
