Cheers to SAFE Bikes: One Year Anniversary Party

From the SF Bicycle Coalition:

SAFE Bikes, the bicycle theft prevention program will celebrate its one year anniversary on February 25, 2015. We launched one year ago as an education and registry program to reduce bicycle theft and improve recovery of stolen bikes in the city of San Francisco. Come support our milestones including; 20 percent decrease in bicycle street thefts, education of more than 25,000 riders and a marked increase in arrests by the SFPD.

There will be appetizers, cash bar, silent auction and everyone that attends will receive a drawing entry to win a brand new PUBLIC bike.
