Win of the Week
San José Approves Two-Year Vision Zero Plan

Kudos to the City of San José this week for approving the draft Vision Zero Two-Year Action Plan (https://bikesiliconvalley.org/2017/05/san-jose-plans-two-years-vision-zero-action/) ! The plan, approved by the city council’s Transportation & Environment Committee on Monday, lays out actionable steps the City will take over the next two years as it seeks to reach the goal of eliminating roadway fatalities and major injuries. Vision Zero is not a quickly achieved goal, and these mileposts are important accomplishments as we work to make our roadways truly safe for all.

The Latest
Engagement and Patience Pay Off in Woodside

Woodside advocates saw a years-long campaign bear fruit recently. After persistent advocacy stretching back to 2010, the Woodside Town Council finally adopted design plans for a new bike lane on Alameda de las Pulgas. Read the story of this win (https://bikesiliconvalley.org/2017/05/engagement-persistence-pay-off-woodside/) by SVBC member Bob Page.

Lessons From the Dutch

How did the Dutch make Amsterdam one of the greatest biking communities in the world? What can Silicon Valley learn from their experience? Those questions will be the subject of a forum being sponsored by SVBC and Joint Venture Silicon Valley on Monday May 8, at LinkedIn’s Sunnyvale campus. The forum is open to the public, it is free of charge, and you are warmly welcome to join us. Please register in advance (http://www.jointventure.org/events/upcoming-events/dutch-bike-event) , because attendance is limited to the first 300 to respond.
Congratulations to the 2017 Bike Commuters of the Year!

Help us congratulate Stephan Rosner and Kate Gibson, the Santa Clara County and San Mateo County Bike Commuters of the Year (https://bikesiliconvalley.org/btwd/bcoy/) . The Bike Commuter of the Year is someone who is committed to making every day a “Bike to Work Day” and someone who epitomizes and actualizes the health, environmental, social, and economic benefits of bicycling. These two show a commitment to biking for transportation that inspires others. We also have two honorable mentions in Santa Clara County: Richard Masoner and Ferdi Abraham. Join us at the Bike Away From Work Bash (https://bikesiliconvalley.org/bike-away-from-work-bash/) , May 11, to celebrate these prolific pedalers!
