Spotlight on Bike Partners:
One of the best ways to enjoy *most Sunday Streets events is by bicycle. These businesses and organizations support bicycle programs at Sunday Streets: Bike & Roll, Bay Are Bike Rentals and Tours, Blazing Saddles provide FREE bike rentals (for one hour, to encourage turn over) at every event. Sports Basement, REI, Mikes Bikes, provide free bike tune ups so people can get their bike in shape for a fun day of cycling on safe, car-free streets. The New Wheel brings a fleet of electric bikes to try out. San Francisco Bicycle Coalition has been presenting Freedom From Training Wheels at Sunday Streets since 2008 and YBike participates with Youth Bike Safety Rodeos this year on Sept. 11 in the Western Addition.
* Sept. 18 Chinatown North Beach is a 'Walking Street' event- people are encouraged to ride to the event and park in valet bike parking to enjoy Grant Ave on foot.
