Nominate Someone You Know for the Bike Commuter of the Year Award

Who is Your Bicycling Hero?

Commuting by bicycle is about more than just getting to and from work. It’s about the dedication and passion that come with making the bicycle a big part of how you live and who you are. Do you know someone in your community who is committed to making every day Bike to Work Day? Someone who lives and promotes the health, environmental, social and economic benefits of bicycling?

Who do you know who inspires you in their commitment to bicycling? Share their story with us by submitting a nomination for the San Francisco’s Bicycle Commuter of the Year awards by April 20, 2015!

Bao-Tran Ausman was our 2014 Bike Commuter of the Year winner. She is one of the parents you see pedaling all around the city with their kids. Bao-Tran carries her two children on the back of her Surly Big Dummy, routinely picking up her daughters, eight year-old Ava and five year-old Alexandra from school and taking them to activities around town.

A 2015 Bike Commuter of the Year winner will be selected from each of the nine Bay Area counties, as part of Bike to Work Day, which falls on May 14 this year. The San Francisco Bike Commuter of the Year will be recognized at City Hall on the morning of Bike to Work Day. Winners will receive rechargeable bicycle headlights, gift certificates for dinner for four at Chipotle plus boxed map sets for the San Francisco Bay Trail.
