In September, a San Mateo cyclist was struck and killed by a turning minivan. This is a sad reminder of the potential danger of cycling in an environment where bikes and cars must coexist. One safe haven from this risky riding environment is Bicycle Sunday, an opportunity for riders of all ages and levels of experience to bike (or walk, run, skate, etc.) down Cañada Road while it is closed off from all motor vehicles.
However, Bicycle Sunday needs the community's support. San Mateo County has partnered with Citizinvestor in order to crowdfund enough support for at least three months of Bicycle Sundays. If you’d like to support this cause, please consider spreading the word via social media, embedding the widget (which can be found here) into your webpage, or making a direct investment as an individual. We still need to raise $10,340, but with enough help from the community, this goal can be met. Every bit helps!
