Safe routes to schools, work, stores, and home create connected communities.
The Shenandoah Valley Bike Coalition is committed to building safe routes for human-powered transportation that connects our cities, towns, and rural countrysides.
We support the following outreach and advocacy initiatives:
Launching Safe Routes to School programs in our local school systems, restoring the freedom and confidence of children to walk and bike to school.
Manage the Connect Our Schools initiative to build a connected network of Greenways and Shared Use Paths to make schools accessible by bike and foot to surrounding neighborhoods.
Recruit Coalition volunteers to sit on the Transportation Advisory Boards and Planning Commissions of area localities, ensuring that bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure is included on long-term infrastructure planning.
Work with regional stakeholders such as the Shenandoah National Park to ensure bicycle access and safety considerations.
