Golden Wheel Awards – Thursday, July 25, 2019

Thursday, July 25, 2019

6:30pm - 9:00pm

The Green Room at the San Francisco War Memorial & Performing Arts Center, 401 Van Ness Ave.


The Golden Wheel Awards honor leaders in the community who are making positive change to the urban landscape. The event is a formal cocktail party attended by political decision-makers, community leaders, business partners and interested San Francisco Bicycle Coalition members who want to mingle and enjoy an evening of inspiration. Each event ticket directly supports the work of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and includes hors d’eouvres, an open beer and wine bar, coat check and valet bicycle parking.


In the spring of 2017, Maureen Persico and Matt Brezina were riding bikes together on Valencia Street. Frustrated by the endless number of Ubers, taxis and delivery trucks blocking the bike lane, Maureen said, “We should do Hands Around America, but next to the bike lane. If the City won’t protect us, we will protect our own.” And that evening, People Protected was formed. Today, the movement has expanded to over twenty cities around the world.

There has been no greater champion on the SF Board of Supervisors for people who bike than Jane Kim. In her eight years representing District 6, her unrelenting vision and tireless work for safe streets improved some of the city’s most trafficked areas, from 13th and Division, to Folsom and Howard, to Turk, to the contraflow at Polk and Market. We are honored to celebrate her many tangible contributions that have improved SF for everyone.
