San Antonio has a population of nearly 1.5 million people. According to the City of San Antonio, over 325,000 of these people ride a bicycle in Bexar County at least once a month. There could be even more people riding their bikes to our greenways, to the local H-E-B, or to their local parks, but it requires a unified voice. That’s where we come in, and where your membership with Bike San Antonio comes into play.
A membership with Bike San Antonio provides us with numbers that matter as we all seek to support cycling. The power and influence of an advocacy organization are intimately linked to the number of active members who support the work of the organization. Membership builds the clout of an organization’s message and provides it with a network of advocates that can deliver that message to, and educate, legislators at critical times. Membership dues pay the bills, but most importantly, they provide leverage for initiatives like our license plates and education programs.
Bike San Antonio unifies the local San Antonio community to speak a voice toward safety and inclusion for all. Our broad, grassroots support base takes your voice and pairs it with working relationships with the City of San Antonio, ActivateSA, and other local legislators and advocacy groups. Your voice with our relationships and know-how reaches beyond what a single individual can do. If you want neighborhoods that are safe for everyone to walk and ride their bicycle, a membership is the way to do it. Join us today!
