CAMTB Proposition Endorsements 2020
Nov 3 is approaching quickly, and California Mountain Biking Coalition is encouraging all voters to weigh in on their local, state, and federal races and measures. This year, and per our mission, we sought out measures that directly impacted trail improvement and access for the trail riding community in California. As such, CAMTB is endorsing two local ballot measures this year: Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority Measure T and San Francisco Measure A.
Measure T (Vote Yes). The Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority is a very mountain bike friendly land manager. Currently, all the major trails are open to bikes. During this year they have also spent considerable effort keeping their open spaces open. Measure T would continue the existing funding to operate and improve the open space we enjoy.

Measure A (Vote Yes). San Francisco’s recovery bond includes a number of important park improvements, including funding for trails. Some of these trails will be open to mountain biking. Measure A is a bond measure, but new bonds would only be issued as old bonds expire, maintaining the current capital spending level. Learn more at https://www.sfrecoverybond.com/.
Every Californian should already have received a ballot in the mail this year. Voter registration closes on October 19th, however, all eligible voters can register conditionally at their place of polling. Learn more at https://www.sos.ca.gov/elections
