Mission Statement:  

FCBC works to build healthy, equitable, and safe communities through advocacy, education, and collaboration that promotes bicycling for everyday transportation and recreation.

Bike Match updates:

 “I'm still able to make incremental progress here and there, but I'd like to get Stephen Braitsch's blessing on using the Bike Match name for our own version of the site. Otherwise I think we may need to call it something else (perhaps, Fresno Bicycle Exchange: Give a Bike, Get a Bike). What I've developed so far is fairly different in implementation, so we would be safe there (we would allow users to negotiate the match themselves as well as arranging the meetup).

Best regards,


Standing Item: Legislation: 5 min


Assembly Bill 122, which brings the “Idaho stop” to California and allows bicyclists to treat stop signs as yield signs.  The bill had a second reading in the Senate, was amended, and sent back to the Transportation Committee.  As currently proposed, the California Highway Patrol would provide a report with safety data to the Legislature by January 2027, and the provisions of the bill would sunset on January 1, 2028.

Assembly Bill 117 would establish incentives for electric bicycles.  The bill was passed by the Assembly and went to the Senate and is now in the Transportation Committee.

Assembly Bill 43 modifies the method that speed limits are set and gives more guidance as to when speed limits can be reduced an additional 5 mph from the 5 mph increment below the 85th percentile speed.  The bill has had a second reading and amendments in the Senate and is in the Senate Transportation Committee.
