EFF Wins San Francisco Bicycle Coalition's Bike-Friendliness Award

EFF's Yan Zhu, Maira Sutton, April Glaser and Mark Burdett at
the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Awards press conference, with Mayor Ed Lee.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation loves bikes almost as much as Bruce Schneier loves encryption. Cycling relieves road congestion, alleviates the city's parking deficit, and contributes to air quality while also promoting health. Bikes, of course, are also a reasonable alternative to driving for privacy-conscious commuters who are leery of license plate readers, public-transit data retention, automobile black boxes and other forms of location tracking.

Today, on Bike to Work Day, EFF proudly accepted a 2014 Bicycle Friendly Business Award in the non-profit category on the steps of San Francisco City Hall. Organized by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, the awards recognize Bay Area workplaces that provide support and incentives for cyclist employees. Here's what the judges said about us:

We had a number of strong nominees, but the Electronic Frontier Foundation rose to the top of our list of candidates with your strong ridership, secure in-office bike parking, bike commuter benefit program and office email list for biking. Thank you for all you do to support bicycling in your workplace!

EFF is grateful to the Bicycle Coalition for the honor and for the work they do to promote safer streets for cyclists in the city.
