The Golden Wheel Awards are less than a week away, and we couldn’t be more excited about this year’s guest speakers, Supervisors Jane Kim and Scott Wiener. Make sure you grab your tickets for this can’t-miss event!
We are honored to have Supervisors Kim and Wiener as our special guest speakers for our 24th Annual Golden Wheel Awards on Wed., July 13 at the elegant, newly renovated Green Room at the SF War Memorial and Performing Arts Center. Both Supervisors have strongly championed transportation improvements within the city to make our streets welcome for everyone, especially if they’re pedaling on two wheels. We’ll hear from both Supervisors on their respective transportation platforms, as they are both seeking to be elected this year to represent San Francisco in the State Senate.
Jane Kim has served as a Supervisor for District 6 since 2011, representing neighborhoods including the Tenderloin, SoMa, Treasure Island and Mission Bay. Some of the city’s most-biked streets are in District 6, including Market, Folsom and Polk Streets, to name a few. In her role on the city’s Vision Zero Committee, Supervisor Kim has consistently pushed for smart street design and better bike infrastructure on high-injury corridors and has led a working group focused on street safety, bringing together a diverse coalition of residents. In addition, she has supported one of last year’s Golden Wheel Award-winners, the SF Yellow Bike Project, a local nonprofit community bike shop in the Tenderloin and learned how to bike as an adult through the SF Bicycle Coalition’s bicycle education program.
Scott Wiener has represented District 8 as Supervisor since 2011, representing neighborhoods including the Castro, Noe Valley, Duboce Triangle and parts of the Mission. Along with Market Street, his district borders Valencia Street, another popular and well-loved bike route in our city. In addition to his support for better biking in District 8, Supervisor Wiener is well-known for his love of transit, winning SF Transit Riders’ Muni Challenge last year with 106 rides in 22 days. Supervisor Wiener has fought for the expansion of public transportation’s service and reliability, changes to city codes to ease implementation of people-friendly street transformations and championed Proposition B in 2014 to bring more money to invest in these needed biking, walking and transit projects.
We hope you can join us and Supervisors Kim and Wiener on the evening of Wed., July 13, as we honor the work of Walk SF Executive Director Nicole Ferrara and Assemblymember Phil Ting.
