Advocacy

Better Bike Infrastructure

Help us advocate for bike infrastructure in Sunnyvale! We all want to be safe when we travel by bicycle. The city needs to hear from us about our need for protected bike lanes and protected intersections that will make cycling better for everyone. This means we need people who are willing and available to join city council meetings and other meetings like the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission meetings and speak during the public comment periods to tell them what we want when important bike-related topics are discussed.


Help us plan our advocacy

If you're interested in getting into the details and becoming involved in planning for our advocacy campaigns, please send email to bikesunnyvale@gmail.com to join our planning efforts around advocacy and bike-related events.
