Come Celebrate the Year of the Bike at SFBC’s Winterfest

With the gradual thawing underway in the three-year freeze of bicycle infrastructure in San Francisco, this year’s SFBC Winterfest celebration, one of the best bicycle parties in any year, is sure to warm this Sunday night up right.

"It’s a place where cyclists of all shapes, sizes and creeds come together to celebrate cycling and the SFBC," said Jodi Madeiros, SFBC Development Director. "The timing couldn’t be more perfect with the green pavement, the bike boxes, the separated bike lane on Market Street. We didn’t say that 2009 was going to be the year of the bicycle for nothing and now is the time to come celebrate that."

There will be ample beer from New Belgium and an art auction featuring works from David Byrne, Dave Eggers, Guy Overfelt, and other local artists. They will also auction up to 20 bicycles, so it’s a great opportunity to get out on a new bike and ride [download auction catalog PDF].

There is a fee to get in, but the proceeds go to benefit the SFBC and help them advocate for better biking in San Francisco. $15+ for current SF Bicycle Coalition Members, $40 for non-members includes one year of Bike
Coalition membership. 

The party is at the SOMArts Gallery at 934 Brannan St. (@ 8th St), from 6pm-10:30pm. DJ’s Laron & ShOOey will be spinning and as always you can park your bike with free valet bike parking. This is what it looked like last year:

    Jeez, folks, I love you r blog, but baiting Rob Anderson like this is pretty juvenile, loathsome though he is. Much better to ignore him, yes?

  • Last year Rob referred to the event as the ‘bike nuts’ annual circle jerk.’ He’s already been hooked tb 😉
