Give to Streetsblog SF for a Chance to Win a Sleek New Bike Lock

We’ve got another great reason to donate to Streetsblog’s year-end pledge drive — give before midnight Sunday, and you’ll be entered to win a sleek TiGr titanium bike lock:

One of these sleek bike locks is going to a reader who gives $50 or more by Sunday at midnight.

With parking-obsessed merchants — and now even the city’s own Fire Department — standing in the way of street safety measures that save lives, progress is far from assured. As the city takes up ballot measures to fund major improvements to its networks for transit, walking, and biking, there’s a lot on the line in 2014.

Streetsblog needs your support to counteract the misinformation and hold city leaders to their promises on livable streets and a better Muni.

Also, don’t forget, everyone who gives $50 or more before the end of the year will also be eligible to take home a new Public C7 or V7 bicycle. We have bikes to give away to two lucky readers:

A huge thanks to the readers who’ve contributed so far — every donation brings us closer to our goal!

Six years ago today, I struck up a conversation with Therese as we walked through the fare gates into Powell Station to wait for the N-Judah. I’d seen her there before, since we both regularly took the train after our late-night retail shifts in Union Square through the holiday shopping season. Last weekend, while waiting […]
