  • Thursday: The SFBC’s 21st Annual Golden Wheel Awards will feature keynote speaker Janette Sadik-Khan, New York City’s nationally-renowned transportation commissioner, who has led the impressive roll-out of protected bike lanes, enhanced bus routes,  public plazas, and, most recently, America’s largest bike-share system. The SFBC will also honor the livable streets accomplishments of CC Puede and the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District. 6:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: The Bicycle Music Festival — the “largest 100% bicycle-powered music festival in the world” — returns to pedal sounds once again from Golden Gate Park to the Mission. Noon to evening.
