The San Francisco Bicycle Ballet was founded in 1996 by an old school bicycle rider and pals of the road. The Bike Ballet is performed to be viewed from above. The concept was originally based upon marching bands and swimmers-busby styley stuff. As the seasons continued- a firefly firework side look has evolved. The focus is on the beauty of the bicycle, its ride and the intermingling shapes of motion. Simply a treasure to behold!

We have performed at many benefits, museums and special events.

We are community based and encourage nice thoughts.

We have our own band (the original was the Spoke Tones and then many fabulous others: Guillermo, Trumpets, Lenny Gonzalez Cello, Gregory Lennox Forbes Life on Space, Molten Grog, Charbo, Chump from LA and many others), a core group of active members and a team of veteran ballerinos and 'rinas.

We always have a summer show and we ask our talented film makers, musicians and other enabled friends to join in the show.

We support bicycling as a way to have fun and be social.
