On April 27th, we’ll be celebrating our 18th annual Golden Wheel Awards in honor of the leaders of change who are working to create great streets and a world-class bicycling city. Please join us for this important fundraiser for our organization and enjoy great wine and beer and tasty hors d’oeuvres while mingling with fellow members and local VIPs. Ticket prices start at just $75, purchase your tickets today.
The 2010 Golden Wheel Awards will honor two leaders of change. First, Michael Helquist, SF Bicycle Coalition member and volunteer, for his leadership role in creating smooth pavement on bike routes all across San Francisco. Michael, along with other Good Roads volunteers, conducted an extensive, on-the-ground pavement audit of key biking streets and led our efforts to identify longer stretches of important biking streets, like Arguello, JFK and Market Street that were in need of large repaving fixes. Thanks to Michael’s leadership and volunteerism, our Good Roads Campaign is consistently winning smoother pavement to improve the ride for people on bikes.
The second Golden Wheel Award honors San Francisco Streetsblog for their intelligent journalism on bicycling issues. Streetsblog’s first story covered our rally to save the Market and Octavia bike lane in January 2009, and ever since they have been leading the conversation and helping more people understand the connection between bicycling, great streets and a livable city.
Come meet these Golden Wheel Award winners and join us at this important fundraiser. Buy your tickets today and support the SF Bicycle Coalition’s non-profit work creating a more livable and bikeable San Francisco.
