New San Francisco cycling benefit seeks sponsors

Published February 6, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (BRAIN) — Industry sponsors are being sought for the inaugural CycleSF, a fun ride that will open 24 miles of San Francisco’s streets to cyclists and benefit the city’s Recreation and Parks Department.

CycleSF is set for Sunday, April 28, with a fundraising goal of more than $100,000.  Money raised will go toward new bike racks in San Francisco’s parks, as well as the Recreation and Parks Department’s scholarship fund that supports recreation programming for low-income children and families.

“Cycling promotes a healthier lifestyle,  reduces traffic congestion, and creates a greener environment,” Mayor Ed Lee said in a statement.  “CycleSF gives San Franciscans an opportunity to come together as a community and celebrate a great recreational activity while supporting our parks.”

Event registration is open at www.cyclesf.org, with options for 13- and 24-mile fun rides as well as an “Elite” rider option to ride in an escorted pace group ahead of the main event.

Companies interested in vendor opportunities or sponsorships can contact Ciara Viehweg at cviehweg@jumpingfences.org.
