Michael talks with us about the San Joaquin Bike Coalition and their goals of promoting bicycle safety and improving the means to use alternative transportation in San Joaquin County.

He explains how after his discovery of cycling and then eventually building his first bike from the frame up, he felt there was a need to improve the cycling culture here in Stockton.

The SJBC was formed about 3 years by a group of friends that came together and began organizing rides and have been advocating for cycling throughout the San Joaquin region.

 

Wednesday Night Ride

The Wednesday night ride is a free event and takes place every week on Wednesday evening from 7pm to 9pm. They meet behind the Empresso Coffeehouse. All riders that have basic bike-riding skills are welcome to join in.
