Win of the Week

Work Begins on Developing Three Creeks Trail

Earlier this week, it was announced that San Jose's Three Creeks Trail will receive $2.7 million (http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/03/15/development-of-three-creeks-trail-to-begin-next-month/) in funding. Trails Program Manager Yves Zsutty has been a vocal advocate for the trail, a corridor intended to eventually connect the Los Gatos Creek, Guadalupe River, and Coyote Creek Trails. In addition to paving, the new funding will allow for landscaping, irrigation, gateways, and interpretive stations. The upgraded trail will contribute to the City's goal of 100 miles of off-road bike facilities by 2020, part of a 500-mile citywide network. Congratulations to San Jose for taking this big step!
The Latest
Action Alert: Support the Safe Streets Act of 2017

Last week, SVBC Executive Director Shiloh Ballard headed to Sacramento to discuss Assembly Bill 342: the Safe Streets Act of 2017 with legislators. The bill would allow the cities of San Jose and San Francisco to pilot a five-year program using automatic speed enforcement, or speed safety cameras. Unsafe speed is the single highest factor in fatal and severe injury crashes in both cities. As proponents of Vision Zero, the goal of eliminating all traffic fatalities and major injuries, SVBC supports AB 342 and hopes you will join us. Read more about the bill and contact your legislators (https://bikesiliconvalley.org/2017/03/support-safe-streets-act-2017/) today to let them know you support this effective tool to make our roads safer!
SVBC Education Team Recap of Mayferia

The first-ever “Mayferia (https://bikesiliconvalley.org/2017/03/svbc-education-team-heads-mayfair/) ,” a celebration of San Jose’s Mayfair community, was held on Sunday, March 19, at the School of Arts and Culture in the Mexican Heritage Plaza. SVBC was honored to be part of the event, which turned out to be a wonderful way to connect with local families.
Who’s the Most Inspirational Bicyclist You Know?

Do you know someone in your community who is committed to making every day a “Bike to Work Day”? Does this person epitomize the health, environmental, social, and economic benefits of bicycling? Do they inspire others around them to get on a bike? Nominate them for Bicycle Commuter of the Year (http://youcanbikethere.com/bike-commuter-of-the-year/) , to be announced during National Bike Month in May.
Shaping San Jose's Protected Bikeway Network

Protected bikeways, bike lanes separated from traffic due to built elements or parked cars, are the safest way for cyclists to traverse city streets and the best way to get new riders comfortable with urban biking. SVBC has a campaign to bring a protected bike lane network to San Jose. Learn what a future network might look like from San Jose transportation experts and the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) at this lunchtime forum at SPUR San Jose on March 29 (https://bikesiliconvalley.org/event/shaping-san-joses-protected-bike-network/) .
Caltrans District 4 Bike Plan Survey

Our State transportation agency wants to hear from you! Please take a moment to complete a brief survey (http://bit.ly/d4bikeplan) for the Caltrans District 4 Bicycle Plan (http://www.dot.ca.gov/d4/bikeplan/) . Caltrans is developing a Bicycle Plan for the Bay Area district to improve bicycling on and across the State-owned transportation network. This Plan builds on the California State Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan (http://www.cabikepedplan.org/) and complements regional and local planning efforts to help create a connected, comfortable, and safer bicycle network for the Bay Area.
