Great turnout at the Sonoma Velo Project Presentation

Special thanks goes out to all that showed up to the presentation of the bike park to the advisory Board of Community Services (BOCS) to the City of Santa Rosa. About a dozen people spoke from the public in favor of the park including bike shop owners, team swift, and other cycling types. John Piasta even got up to speak for Team Swift to help the members understand the positive impact cycling has on youth.

After the presentation and public forum, the board unanimously passed a measure to proceed with the investigation of the proposed bicycle park in Youth Park!

Now the project needs YOUR HELP! Below is an excerpt from

What does the board need now?
  • Expertise–The SCVP is looking for folks to offer up their in-kind services to get this thing rolling in style including architectural services, environmental impact assessment specialists, and fund-raising geniuses. We could use a good volunteer coordinator too. If you’re any of these then e-mail and step up to the plate.

So please, if you know somebody who can help with this (especially the environmental peice), tell them about the project and let them know we need their help.
