We maintain information files and a library of bicycle resources. People Power is located in the Santa Cruz Hub For Sustainable Living, which also includes the Bike Church, Pedalers Express, the Fabrica, and the Computer Kitchen.
Mission:People Power is improving the quality of life in Santa Cruz County by promoting bicycling and other forms of sustainable transportation.
Programs:Greenways to School is a program designed to help students make connections between personal transportation choices and climate change, oil use, and the health of their planet and themselves. Phone: 831-425-0667

Greenways to School complements People Power's vision through youth empowerment, education, and fun activities. The program will help students to expand their thinking and empower them to choose a healthy and sustainable future.

Valet Bike Parking
If you host events where any of your guests arrive on bikes, Valet Bike Parking makes a great addition to the program. We have years of experience parking bikes at events throughout Santa Cruz County. Valet Bike Parking works just like a coat check. Riders are given a tag when their bike is parked. Bikes are stored in a secure enclosure during the event, and riders retrieve their bike when they return with their tag. For pricing and availability, or to volunteer to help park bikes, contact us at (831) 425-0665 or
