The Healdsburg Harvest Century is partnering with Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition (SCBC’s) to make sure you receive VIP valet bicycle parking when you roll in from your ride. SCBC’s bike parking staff will keep your favorite ride safe and secure while you enjoy the post-ride festivities. We encourage you to ride to the ride.
For more than 10 years, Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition has been promoting bicycling for transportation and recreation for all the right reasons – most important of all, riding a bike is fun. Using a combination of outreach, advocacy, education, and incentives, Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition continues to make Sonoma County an increasingly safe and accessible place for riders of all levels to enjoy bicycling. SCBC operates a successful Safe Routes to School program, hosts great bike events, offers Street Skills for Bike Riders courses, and has recently begun hosting beginner-level bike rides. SCBC is now working on a Countywide anti-harassment of bicyclists ordinance, and is part of a group working to create a plan to fix Sonoma County’s roads.
If you ride in Sonoma County, join Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition today! Healdsburg Harvest Century riders can take $5 off their first year of membership by using discount code HBCENT. Why join? SCBC members receive discounts at many local bike shops, can vote for/run for the Board of Directors, get discounted admission to SCBC events… but, most important is that, as a member of Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, you’re adding your voice to a growing group of people who want Sonoma County to truly be the best place to ride a bike!
