Info provided from Lynne:
Along with the rest of SFBC’s Climate Ride Team, I am hosting a fundraising event in the form of a shopping party at Sports Basement, 1590 Bryant Street btwn Alameda and 15th, Wed Aug 18, 6-8pm. There will be free beer, wine, music and a raffle – possibly with a bike.
20% of all purchases will go to support SFBC’s Climate Ride Team. (Please note the usual Sports Basement 10% SFBC discount will not be in effect during the fundraiser.) 40% of all the SFBC Climate Ride Team will go back to SFBC. So so far we have raised nearly $12, 000, so we expect to net SFBC a fair chunk of change.
If you are in need of any equipment, clothing or accessories for biking or any other activity, please consider coming out to the party. Or just drop by and have a beer and wish us well.
I received an email from the Bay Area Air and I have never done video, but this seems like a pretty fun contest to enter and posted this so many talented video city dwellers out there like you should all enter!
Video is open to not only open to those of us on bikes, but anyone that walks, uses public transit. Good luck!
In an effort to get Bay Area residents more excited about doing their part to Spare the Air and to educate them about clean commute alternatives, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District is running the “Commuter Chronicles” Video Contest from August 11 through September 30.
To enter, Bay Area entrants should submit a 60-second or less video explaining why and how they Spare the Airduring their commute, whether it is by carpooling, taking public transit, telecommuting, biking, walking or doing something even more creative. Contest prizes include a folding bike, a $250 FasTrack pass and $100 Starbucks gift cards, and 10 $100 Clipper passes.

Prizes Include a Folding Bike, a $250 FasTrack Pass and $100 Starbucks Gift Card
and 10 $100 Clipper Passes
WHAT: The Bay Area’s 7 million residents take more than 3.5 million car trips a day, which is the single largest source of pollution in the Bay Area. Much of these car trips are 2 miles or less, a short distance that could be walked or biked.
The Bay Area Air Quality Management District invites Bay Area residents to share their commuting story in a short video for a chance to win one of three commuter-friendly prizes:
· Grand Prize: Dahon Mu Uno Folding Bike ($579 value)
· First Prize: $250 FasTrack pass and $100 Starbucks gift card
· Second Prize: One of 10 $100 Clipper passes, for use on AC Transit, BART, Caltrain, Golden Gate Transit and Ferry and all Muni vehicles
Entrants should explain in 60 seconds or less why and how they Spare the Air every day during their commute – whether it is by carpooling, taking public transit, telecommuting, biking, walking or doing something even more creative. Contest entrants must register for a YouTube account (if they don’t already have one), post their video on YouTube and send the Air District a message via the Spare the AirYouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/SpareTheAirBayAreafor a chance to win.
