The 20th Annual Golden Wheel Awards
"Cities should be built primarily around pedestrians, ‘but very close to the pedestrians is the cyclists...I think that cycling is just a more efficient way of walking.’"
-- Gil Penalosa, Bike advocates have made real progress, but there’s still a long way to go, San Francisco Bay Guardian, June 6, 2012
Thanks to all our members, sponsors and supporters who joined us to celebrate our 20th Golden Wheel Awards on June 5th. Together, we've set the stage for San Francisco to become a world-class city for bicycling.
The 20th Annual Golden Wheel Awards honor
Building Owners and Managers Association of San Francisco
For leading the business community in support of groundbreaking local legislation that will significantly expand bicycling as an option for employees in San Francisco. We were proud to partner closely with BOMA on the Employee Bicycle Access Bill, which was signed into law this year and ensures secure bicycle parking for San Francisco Employees. Thanks to BOMA’s support, San Francisco has the strongest bicycle access legislation in the country.
Thank you BOMA for building bridges and partnering with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition for a stronger economy and a healthier workforce.
Lower 24th Street Merchants & Neighbors Association
For demonstrating the power of open streets to benefit not only the vibrant Mission District but all of San Francisco. By embracing Sunday Streets early and stepping up to be the first San Francisco neighborhood to host recurring events, the Lower 24th Street Merchants & Neighbors Association is a model of streets to serve as valuable public space, and benefit our families, local businesses, and our city, overall.
Thank you Lower 24th Street Merchants & Neighbors Association helping to create a more livable and enjoyable city.
We welcome Gil Peñalosa, an international leader in creating great cities through active public spaces, as this year’s keynote speaker. Mr. Peñalosa, Executive Director of 8-80 Cities, will share his vision on how San Francisco can foster healthier neighborhoods and happier residents through promoting walking and bicycling.
We gratefully acknowledge the following 20th Annual Golden Wheel Awards sponsors for their generous financial contributions to our organization.
