Now you can join Napa Bike and the Vine Trail Coalition with one click of the button! Join either coalition at the $100 donation level or above, and you will automatically get a 1 year free membership in the other organization. This option is an indicator of the growing unity in the biking and walking communities; we recognize that we need to pull together if we are going to reach our goals.
So what is the difference? Napa Bike is dedicated to making cycling safer throughout the County by advocating for improvements in cycling infrastructure, cyclist and motorist education, bike riding encouragement programs, and enforcement of rules of the road for cyclists and motorists. Our friends in the Napa Valley Vine Trail Coalition are focused on a specific project that supports our goals too. They are working to create a safe off-highway multi-use trail that will connect all of the towns of the county with the Vallejo Ferry, essentially creating the 'spine' of the Napa County bike network. It's hard not to want to be involved with both if you like to bike and enjoy the outdoors on foot.
Clearly we have much in common and share many goals. In fact the leadership team of the Vine Trail Coalition are members of Napa Bike and Chuck McMinn, CEO of the Vine Trail, serves on the Napa Bike advisory board. Similarly, many members of the Napa Bike board are also members of the Vine Trail coalition, and there are several members who serve on the Vine Trail Board.
Recognizing that we have many members in common, and that a lot of people want to support the goals of both coalitions, Napa Bike and the Vine Trail are each offering this convenient way to be part of both initiatives. If you would like to join or renew your membership and take advantage of this opportunity, just go to our web page and click on the JOIN button. Select any donation amount of $100 or more and you will be in both coalitions and be totally in the know about what's going on to advance the cause of biking and walking in Napa County.
