This Week in Livable Streets Events

This week, celebrate Market Street’s new separated bike lane, and join the effort to extend it all the way to the Embarcadero. Here are the highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Monday: Bike Movie Night at the Independent. A free screening of Nebraska Supersonic, a comedy that tells the story of three friends who start a bicycle courier service on the great plains. 8 p.m.
  • Tuesday: SFBC Golden Wheel Awards. SFBC is hosting the 2010 Golden Wheel Awards to "celebrate the leaders of change who are working to create great streets and a world-class bicycling city" — including Michael Helquist and Streetsblog San Francisco. David Chiu, President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, is the keynote speaker. 6-9 p.m.
  • Friday: Bike to Work with Supervisor Mar. Talk policy points or trade political gossip with Supervisor Eric Mar on this jolly monthly tradition. 8 a.m.
  • Friday: Celebrate San Francisco’s First Separated Bike Lane on Market St. Raise a glass and celebrate SFBC’s efforts in winning the newly separated bike lane on Market Street. Then, cheer on the work that will be pushing for a fully separated and continuous bikeway from Octavia all the way to the Embarcadero. 5-8 p.m.
  • Saturday: SFBC Monthly Good Roads Ride.
    Join the Good Roads crew and help get more streets ready for Bike to Work Day. The ride will spin through the Civic Center, swoop down along Jefferson and Lafayette Parks, and make sure Japantown and Pacific Heights get the treatment too.
    10 a.m.-2 p.m.
  • Sunday: Noodle Fest 2010. Get your Sunday street-closure fix for the week. Chinatown Community Development Center and North Beach Merchants Association are shutting down the streets to traffic and opening them up for people and delicious noodles. 3-7 p.m.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.

  • I stand corrected, North Beach did get a Sunday Streets event.
