Bike Shops Bring a Boost to Our Advocacy This Summer

As people who bike in San Francisco we’re spoiled by the number of incredible bike shops within our city limits. In just about every neighborhood there’s a great shop ready to support you in any and all your bicycling endeavors.

This summer a number of those shops are working to boost our advocacy. As part of the Bike Shop Challenge, they’re competing to see who can recruit the most new and renewing members to the SF Bicycle Coalition this July. The best part? Everyone’s a winner.

Your prize: Join or renew your membership at a participating bike shop and you could win two free tickets to Tour de Fat.

The prize for the shop: The top membership-recruiting shop will be the official bike shop at Tour de Fat. Whether they win or not, each participating shop will win recognition and swag for their employees.

The prize to our city: Better bicycling conditions for you and those you love. Each and every member of the SF Bicycle Coalition strengthens our voice as we advocate for visionary bicycle infrastructure in the places that need them most.

Bike Shop Challenge Contenders:

If you’ve been thinking of becoming a member of the SF Bicycle Coalition, or it’s time for you to renew, July is a great time to do it. Stop by any one of these shops and ask to purchase a membership to the SF Bicycle Coalition. For just $35 you’ll support your local bike shop, enjoy all kinds of member benefits (including a discount at the bike shop!) and be entered into a raffle for two tickets to Tour de Fat. Better yet, you’ll be part of our community of 10,000-plus members who are working to transform our streets and our city into a safe, more livable place.

HUGE thanks to all the shops participating in this year’s Bike Shop Challenge. Our work wouldn’t be possible without you!

Become a member and you'll improve your commute and get discounts at shops across the city.
