The Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board needs you, apply by July 4

If you join SBAB, you will get bike news before anyone else. And sometimes you get to question elected officials like Mike O’Brien.

The Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board is a group of volunteers individually-approved by the City Council to help guide the city’s bicycle investments and policies.

You do not need any kind of special insider knowledge or professional skills to apply. In fact, it might be better if you don’t have any. In my years observing this Board, some of the best input comes from people sharing their experiences and conversations with their neighbors. You just need to be a good listener who wants the city to be a more inviting place for more people to bike more often.

More details on the gig from SDOT:

The SBAB is a volunteer board created by the Seattle City Council in 1977 that plays an influential role in implementing Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan. The board advises the Mayor and City Council, participates in planning and project development, evaluates policies and makes recommendations to all city departments including, yours truly, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).

When you’re on the board, you’ll advise the City on the concerns and needs of our thriving bicycling community. Board members serve a two-year term and if you love it, you can even serve a second term! Current members represent all types of bicyclists and skill levels, from casual weekend riders to year-round commuters. The board meets the first Wednesday of each month from 6-8 PM at Seattle City Hall.

You’ll also represent our city! More specifically:

  • Different user groups including persons with disabilities, senior and school-age citizens, and recreational and commuter bicyclists.
  • Different geographical locations throughout the city.
  • Interested private citizens concerned with urban bicycling issues.
  • Bicycling organizations or clubs.
  • Schools, businesses, and neighborhood organizations.
  • Organizations concerned with bicycling safety.
