Pushbike sponsors our race every year - now in its own space at 22nd & Shotwell, Pushbike is still the best place to go for stylish and practical cycling clothing and vintage jerseys. This year, we've got a really, really nice raglan hoody in a gorgeous teal color from the shop.
Cykel is a relatively new bike shop in North Beach. It's a boutique style business catering to road, cyclocross TT and Tri riders. They were stoked to support the race this year, and we're glad to list them as a new sponsor!
Every year we get several bags of delicious coffee from our friends at De La Paz. A lot of exciting new things have been happening at De La Paz, including a recently redesigned label (check out their website!) and a coffee and espresso bar at 1081 Mission St. The cafe is not yet open full-time, but you can stop by between 7am - 2pm every Friday to get your fix. You can also buy De La Paz beans at a number of city locations, including most Whole Foods Markets.
When we reached out to Oaklandish this year, they told us about this great new line of city pride gear, called there there. They'll be donating a few San Francisco-themed t-shirts to the prize table this year.
Pedal Revolution is another great city bike shop that supports the Street Sweep every year. They have a great selection of bikes for almost any type of rider, and the shop has a down-to-earth and friendly vibe. Stop in and check it out.
Oh, Ritual Coffee. Roasted in the Mission, delicious. Two things that almost always go with bicycles are beer and/or coffee. Last year and the year before, Ritual donated over $200 in gift certificates and some of their tasty beans. This year, we've got a stack of their stylish ceramic mugs, stuffed with gift cards for 10 drinks!
