Thinkwalks Tour

Before bikes were even invented, the popular Wiggle bike route was a foot trail to avoid these same hills. The very latest research on Mission Dolores suggest it was founded in the Wiggle. Later, the city expanded to fill the valley with houses, but why? And what was there first?

Change the way you see the landscape as we talk about everything from art and bike politics to floods, lakes and native societies. A quintessential mix of Thinkwalks themes.

Details:
A flat one mile walk (each way). Meet at the Bike Mural, Duboce Avenue at Church Street, behind Safeway at 11:45am. Ends at Divisadero Street 2 hours later.
