The SLOBC advocates for safe and legal bicycle riding for recreation and transportation in our communities, county, state and nation through personal involvement, club involvement and support of other organizations.
All Eyes, Ears & Voices
To serve the bicyicling needs of our community, we need all members and friends to be activists, attend meetings and monitor road conditions.
City and County Governments and Planning Commissions are much more likely to hear and respond to requests when those requests are supported by many people. We can have this affect by creating a roomful of people or a mailbox full of letters or emails.
We also can be advocates by monitoring road conditions. Everyone, on every bike ride, on every drive in our County can keep their eyes open for conditions requiring repair, dangerous obstacles and road repairs that have been done incorrectly. Of these, incorrect repair is a common problem because road workers often do not understand what constitutes a danger for bicyclists.
When directing complaints, always copy your email to the County Supervisor and the SLO County Bicycle Coalition (SLOCBC). This is an effective way to give add weight to your request by enlarging the circle of people aware of the problem and asking questions as its resolution.
Be firm, clear, specific and polite. There are people in Caltrans and the County who are willing to act on your information. Above all, stop depending on others, become and active advocate. Some agencies have website that support reporting problems. If you know of such a site, let us know and we'll use the links below.
Law Enforcement Non-Emergency Phone Numbers

It is suggested that you place these numbers in your cell phone directory in the event that you want to report an incident.
