Information for Newcomers

Most cyclists in San Francisco seem to already know about the Supermarket Street Sweep bicycle race; but in case you're new in town, here's some basic information to get you acquainted.

December 5, 2009 – Come out to participate in this alleycat to benefit the San Francisco Food Bank! There will be a speed race and a cargo race. All riders and all kinds of bicycles are welcome. Racers should arrive at the Bow & Arrow between 11:30am-12:00pm to register. (See sidebar for map and details.)

This is a really fun event for a great cause. Last year's food collection was enough to provide over 4,000 meals to those in need.

SMSW stats:
2006: 80 racers brought in 1,172 lbs of food!
2007: 110 racers brought in 1,595 lbs of food!
2008: 150 racers brought in 5,266 lbs of food!
2009: Let’s see how much we can raise this year!

But wait! There's more!
