Bicycle Coalition's diminishing dues
A reader send this:
|Year||Membership dues ($)|
Rats are jumping from the SFBC ship. Found SFBC IRS files for the past few years. One item is revenue from membership dues.
Their membership is $35 per person.
According to the table, there is about a 78% drop in paid membership dues from 2011 to 2013.
They haven't been bragging for some time how they are 12,000 people strong.
Yes, it's apparently official that the Bicycle Coalition's membership is now down to 9,315. For years it seemed like every time Leah Shahum was interviewed the membership swelled by 1,000. Those days are clearly over.
Along with how the MTA is sitting on the latest bicycle count report, these numbers show that the city's bike movement is now on the decline. But big bike projects continue to shamble zombie-like through city neighborhoods. In spite of the city's moribund bike movement, the neighborhood-damaging Polk Street bike project and the Masonic Avenue bike project are being justified by lies about safety.
