San Francisco Bike Party Pride (In The Name Of Love) Ride

From SF Bike Party:

Route: http://tinyurl.com/3wyyfbf

June is almost here, San Francisco!  What kind of ride would we be if we didn’t show our PRIDE!?  Come on out and be with the Party as we show you all of the great things this proud City has to offer- architecture, people, history, hills, amazing views, the fabulous Castro, and who knows what else?  It is SF, after all, we can only predict so much.

How We Ride:

Stay in the right lane

Stop at red lights

Leave No Trace

Ride predictably and in control

Roll past conflict

Ride Prepared

When in doubt, “Bike Party!!”

Your First Ride With Us?

We try to maintain a leisurely cruising speed. Routes are designed for a wide range of riders to keep pace. Though, with hundreds of riders on different types of bikes, some will find hills more challenging, or have flats and mechanical troubles. Before the ride, make sure your bicycle is in good working order. You should be comfortable riding San Francisco streets which may have traffic, train tracks, occasional steep hills, and other hazards. Bring friends and make new ones riding at your speed. Within your friends be prepared with a flat kit or to fix basic mechanical troubles. If you see someone in need, it’s good bike etiquette to help. That’s also a great way to make new friends in the biking community. Which is what the Bike Party is all about!
