SFBC’s Golden Wheel Awards

From SFBC:

Shifting the Narrative: Shaping Our Streets, Our Community. The Golden Wheel Awards honor those individuals and groups who are making a difference in transforming San Francisco into a more people and bike-friendly place.

Keynote Speaker: We are thrilled to welcome Aaron Naparstek, the founder of Streetsblog, as our keynote speaker. Streetsblog has been instrumental in building a movement to transform cities by reversing decades of car-only planning, instead moving toward policies that favor sustainable streets that prioritize walking, bicycling and transit.

Tickets on-sale early June. More details
