While you may have discovered the joys of biking years ago, some of our City leaders and residents are still waking up to the many benefits that biking brings to San Francisco. Read any online comments section on an article about San Francisco bicycling and you’re sure to see there’s a real disconnect between the perception of biking and the reality.
So, we thought we’d take some time this issue to debunk the most com¬mon myths about urban biking. The next time someone tells you that bike riders don’t pay their fair share for the roads or that the City is spending too much on biking, you’ll be armed with the data to rebuke it, help change public opinion of bicycling and ensure that our City invests in making San Francisco a better, safer, more civil place to bike.

Thanks to our supporters, we were also able to respond to unexpected and critical campaigns — like our work in response to the fatal crash on Folsom Street and holding the police accountable for fair and equal enforcement. Read about the biggest bike wins of 2013.
