Power Point Presention, Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition (SVBC) Zoom Video
This presentation is dedicated to Joe Shami, a good friend and Bicycle Safety Advocate. Joe was riding his bicycle in Lafayette, California on April 13, 2021 when he was hit by a vehicle and killed. Joe was 86 years young, an inspiration to me and thousands of cyclists throughout the Bay Area. Joe was a member of the Leadership Team of Mount Diablo Cyclists. He helped not only to design Bike Turnouts but worked tirelessly to encourage the Public, Elected Leaders and California State Parks to install Bike Turnouts on Mount Diablo. Please remember Joe, every time you ride up Mount Diablo!
Special Thanks to California State Parks for Partnering with Mount Diablo Cyclists to Improve the Safety for Cyclists, Motorists and Pedestrians on the roads of Mount Diablo State Park. We look forward to working California State Parks to install more Bike Turnouts on Mount Diablo.
