Place: Chez Poulet, 3359 Cesar Chavez Street, San Francisco


Complimentary refreshments available with admission.
RSVP today: $10 online admission ticket, $15 at the door.
Free valet bicycle parking across the street from the venue. Consider also BART or bus.


About the Venue:

Chez Poulet is odd and unlikely – a funky, eclectic art space. It’s the last small converted art warehouse in San Francisco. In the past, every artist had one of these. Now it’s the last of its kind. A must see!


About the Event:

This San Francisco Bicycle Coalition fundraiser is hosted by SFBC board members Chema Hernández Gil, Jeremy Pollock, and Jiro Yamamoto. Join us for this showcase of member activism and help support a strong San Francisco Bicycle Coalition!

Wed, April 19: SFBC Strategic Plan Open House

This Wednesday is a big opportunity to help shape the next five years of bike advocacy in San Francisco.

SFBC Member Open House for Strategic Planning
When: Wednesday, April 19, 5:30-7:30pm
Where: Sports Basement in the Grotto, 1590 Bryant Street

Every five years, the SF Bicycle Coalition creates a new Strategic Plan to guide our work. This Open House is the first opportunity for members to provide input on that. Topics will range from street campaigns to transportation justice/equity to communication to governance plus more.

To prepare for the Open House, I’ve been reviewing the Save SF Bike platform and thinking about which elements of it would be appropriate to include in the Strategic Plan. And here is the link to the SFBC’s 2012-2017 Strategic Plan.

You can RSVP for the Open House here.

7/7: Fair Elections Member Participation Party

How can we make our board elections even more open and fair? This is the question that long-time member and former board member Peggy da Silva set out to solve when she established her Member’s Committee for Fair SFBC Elections earlier this year.
Curious to learn what the committee learned so far? Join them and fellow members this Thursday at the Fair Elections Member Participation Party, a fun and educational event at the Bryant Street Sports Basement Grotto. There will be refreshments, a short video on how ranked choice voting (RCV) can make elections fairer and the chance to ask questions from experts about elections and running for the board.
