West of the West Ride

"San Francisco is the West’s West, but when was the last time you pedaled all the way out to the Pacific Plate? This ride will take a loping, loving look at the City’s western edge, stopping to explore curiosities and celebrities along the way, ruins and relics and remarkable riches. 2 hour ride; have a big lunch beforehand, we’ll stop somewhere for a snack. Rain cancels rides."
