Yes, you too can ask for something more tangible than world peace this holiday season

Was thorougly impressed with the San Francisco Bike Coalition’s Winterfest last night; the bike advocacy group turned the SOMArts Gallery into a great art party and benefit. While many silent auctions thrive on overfilled spa packages, Winterfest had everything from private classes with Olympic cyclists through the VeloGirls’ Bay Area group, $10 night lights and $1,900 titanium frames. I wasn’t sure about the need for a knit cover for a bike lock as a stocking stuffer, but I’m all for a $25 membership to support safer cycling and better bike access in SF.

GirlVentures also hosted a fun benefit this weekend for their summer outdoor adventures and school year rock climbing mentorship (and, really, who can argue with the mission to “empower adolescent girls to develop and express their strengths”?)
