SF Bicycle Coalition Family Programs
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is proud to be a resource for the huge and growing number of families biking in San Francisco. We love helping families discover the joys of biking together. We offer a myriad of family biking resources to get you and your family members pedaling together.
Family Biking GuideWe are excited to offer our Family Biking Guide, a how-to manual for all stages of family biking in English, Spanish and Chinese versions. For too long there has been little to no concrete in formation about family biking, and we hope our Family Biking Guide can help you and your loved ones discover and enjoy more quality time together on a bike.
Family Biking Classes
In response to the growing number of families biking together, we are proud to offer free adult classes and family biking classes as part of our Introduction to Safe Cycling program. Once a quarter, we will hold a special Family-focused class, where we discuss how to bike from the first Trimester all the way to Middle School. If you are a parent, expecting, or just curious how to bike as a family, these classes are a great introduction.
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is proud to be a founding member of the San Francisco Safe Routes to School Program which helps make biking and walking to school easier for parents and kids through education, safer streets and incentives. Through this great program, we teach thousands of children each year at 15 schools how to walk and bike safely and organize the annual Bike to School Day celebration. Learn more about how this program is making a big difference and helping a huge number of families bike to school and beyond.
