The SFBMA presents … A Rob Ward Race!
Starting at 1 Post this Friday (2/5/16) at 6:30pm.
The Super Bowl is almost here. Come out and help us celebrate the chaos that three weeks of Super Bowl City has brought to downtown.
There are Shedderz Bowl shirts available, too. They’re going fast, get yours from Galen.

$3 entry fee. Helmet required.

Big thanks to Shredderz Krew, SFBMA, Galen – who designed the flyer and shirts, and Rob Ward.

“The film will follow the individuals around the world that are fighting to create change. We meet Aline at Sao Paulo’s Ciclofaxia, the weekly Sunday ride where one lane of Paulista Avenue is opened for bikes only. Aline is an inspirational person in the city’s bicycle movement, who tries to focus on the positive aspects of being a cyclist. But that can be difficult in a city where one bicyclist is killed every four days. And in Toronto, where mayor Rob Ford strips away the city’s bike lanes in his battle to win the “war on cars,” we watch as members of the Urban Repair Squad infiltrate the streets at night, using spray paint and stencils to replace them.”

Come out to the Roxie Theater and check out Bikes vs Cars, a film by Fredrik Gertten. Film starts at 7pm, December 3rd. There will be a Q&A with the director afterwards. 20% off tickets with the promo code BIKE20 if you buy tickets in advance. See you there.
