The San José Bike Clinic Steering Committee is excited to announce that Bike Clinic is now a fiscally sponsored project of the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition (SVBC), which is the leading bicycling advocate and bicycle use promoter in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.
What does this mean? It means that we now have nonprofit status and the backing of SVBC’s existing infrastructure, allowing our group of dedicated volunteers to take Bike Clinic to the next level! We will be looking to all of our supporters over the next year to help us design and deliver programs, raise funds, recruit volunteers, and put in time and energy to help move Bike Clinic forward. We hope you’ll join us.
Our mission continues to be “to provide a shared space for bicycle repair and education and to build a robust and diverse cycling community in San Jose.” As you can see from our History, Bike Clinic was founded in January 2012 by a grassroots group of bicycling enthusiasts, and has achieved a lot already.
Some of the next goals on our road map are to recruit more volunteers, continue to put on Mobile Bike Clinic events and community bike rides, raise funds to buy tools and equipment, save up capital, and open our doors in downtown San José. Want to help?
Please contact SJBikeClinic@gmail.com if you’d like to be informed about volunteer opportunities, upcoming planning meetings, Mobile Bike Clinic repair events, or planned community-building rides. Tell us what you’d like to know or how you’d like to plug in, and we’ll add you to the right email list.
We also have a Wish List on our website, and we would be grateful for any donations, large or small. If you think Bike Clinic sounds great, please consider liking us on Facebook, following @sjbikeclinic on Twitter, and telling all your friends about San José Bike Clinic. Thank you for your support now and in the future.
