Bringing Diverse Perspectives Together for Strength in Numbers

By Sonia Elkes, San Carlos Bikes founder 

The cyclists and riders of various wheels in San Carlos are a diverse bunch with different ideas, beliefs, and objectives. But one goal we ALL share is the desire to get around our town safely, efficiently and enjoyably.  Working together, compromising, and brainstorming ways to come to agreement and resolve our differences helps us improve all of our chances of achieving this goal.

Frequently, the stronger and more passionately someone wants a certain outcome, the less likely it is that they are also seeing what is in the best interest of the majority.  But, without their passion, nothing would propel society toward the changes that need to happen.  Therefore, individual passion provides the momentum for the changes our community needs, whereas group communication modifies its direction to make sure it serves the greatest possible interest.
