Amoeba San Francisco held their first ever Hot August Bikes on Sunday, August 17th, bringing in San Francisco Bicycle Coalitioncyclists (and those who love them) from all parts of the Bay. From noon to 5pm, the Amoeba SF stage and mezzanine were transformed into a bike-friendly fair featuring booths from Bay Guardian & SF Weekly, Hubert's Lemonade, Salsa Delfina, and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. Between salsa and lemonade tasting, guests could learn about the SF Bicycle Coalition and spin prize wheels provided by Amoeba and Bay Guardian for fabulous gifts.

A raffle was also held for two beautiful bikes: the adorable Creme Dutch style bike donated by American Cyclery and the sporty Ocean Front Walker donated by Sole Bicycles. Funds raised from this raffle will be donated directly to the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. 

As if that wasn't enough, we had two celebrity guests. Yes, a Stormtrooper and a Biker Scout from the Golden Gate Garrison of the 501st Legion dropped in to share their love of bikes and record browsing!

Amoeba Hollywood’s first ever Hot August Bikes event was a blast and brought bike enthusiasts and Sunday adventurers of all stripes out to the Ivar lot behind Amoeba for an afternoon full of fun, food, bikes and fundraising.

Between Amoeba’s prize wheel, raffle ticket sales and vendors donating a portion of their proceeds from the event, more than $1300 was raised for the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, whose mission to build a better, more bike-able Los Angeles County. LACBC welcomed a number of new members and gathered more than 100 signatures supporting bike lanes in Hollywood as they ran the day's bike valet—congratulations!

And speaking of those raffles, here are the winning raffle ticket numbers as well as their corresponding prizes:

Hot August Bikes

Passionate about bike culture? Well, you'll soon be able to literally wear your heart on your sleeve with the extra special limited edition T-shirts from Golden Saddle Cyclery and tote bags from Lumi at our Hot August Bikes event in the Ivar parking lot at Amoeba Hollywood Sunday, August 17 12-5pm. A portion of all proceeds from Hot August Bikes will go to support the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition.

Full service Silver Lake bike shop Golden Saddle Cyclery will be on hand at the event with their very own line of limited edition T-shirts. 

DTLA-based Lumi will harness the awesome power of the sun to create photo transfer prints that develop in sunshine, creating a cool, one-of-a-kind canvas tote. You can choose from various photo print designs for your tote, or demo the ink/process and get a kit to use for at-home DIY printing projects. Either way, you'll be able to show off a killer bike-themed design, AND your appreciation for the wonders of nature, modern printing technology and eco-conscious tote bags.

Check out the fantastic designs created specially by Lumi for Hot August Bikes! If you can't make it to the event, but wish to purchase one of the negatives, Lumi has made them available online at the links below.
