These boxes are cleverly-packaged gift certificates from DZR Shoes, which operates out of downtown San Francisco. DZR makes stylish and practical cycling shoes, designed with an urban aesthetic but made for clipless cycling.
Archive Bags are handmade in San Francisco by long-time Supermarket Street Sweep friend, Victor. Not only does Victor make clean, durable gear, he has played an integral role in Street Sweeps of the past.
Another longtime sponsor, Mission Bicycle threw in 4 gift cards, 4 pairs of gloves, and 4 neat portable fenders.
Every year we get a box from Italy full of Selle San Marco saddles. They are always a hit on the prize table. They also threw in some caps too!
You can't really leave your house in San Francisco without seeing a Freight Bag. Handmade in San Francisco, these bags are super durable and thoughtfully constructed. This year we're awarding 2 utility kits, including a hip pack, phone holster, and road soda.
Pedal Revolution is a non-profit bike shop in the Mission, and they also support the Sweep year after year. This year they threw in a large basket and some knee warmers.
Last but not least, we've also got some gorgeous leather footstraps and lock holsters from Plemons Co. Handmade in San Francisco, these straps are simply beautiful. They can be found in many local shops, through Freight's online store, and through their recently redesigned website. We really appreciate that this super tiny business is able to support us!
