Golden Wheel Awards Through the Years

Throughout San Francisco there are amazing community members working hard for safe and more bikeable streets, and they don’t go unnoticed. Each year the SF Bicycle Coalition honors some of these incredible individuals and organizations at the Golden Wheel Awards for their work.

This year at the 26th Golden Wheel Awards the SF Bicycle Coalition is proud to celebrate Leah Shahum and SF Bay Area Families for Safe Streets. Leah is the founder and director of the Vision Zero Network, a nonprofit dedicated to ending traffic-related deaths and injuries for good. Similarly, Bay Area Families for Safe Streets is a group raising awareness for traffic violence and promoting policies to protect all.

Everyone is invited to join us in this special night as we recognize these people for their tremendous efforts in making San Francisco a more bike-friendly city. Come celebrate these great people while spending the evening alongside fellow bicycle enthusiasts.

Please join us in honoring these wonderful people for all their great work on Thursday, July 26.

In 2012 we hosted the 20th Golden Wheel Awards which marked the long-standing history of bringing the community together to honor outstanding people and organizations.

Part of creating meaningful and lasting change is advocates working closely with the City. Former Mayor Ed Lee attended the 2011 Golden Wheel Awards and took part in the celebratory night.

We offered Valet Bike Parking at the awards in 2010, and we’ll have it again this year. Feel free to bring your bike along!

After the 2008 Golden Wheel Awards this happy cyclist claimed her bike from the Valet Bike Parking. Have fun and enjoy the night knowing your bike is being looked after.

Throwback to the 2008 Golden Wheel Awardees! We’ve always been proud to honor amazing advocates and this year’s awardees are no exception.

It’s been over a decade since the 2007 Golden Wheel Awards and over the years there’s been an evolution in the event but the constant has been the emphasis on the bicycling community in SF.

Over the years the location of the Golden Wheel Awards has changed. Back in 2007 the awards were held in the LGBT Center, and this year we’ll be hosting at The Green Room.
