Sunday Streets Afterride #2

Sunday Streets is always over too early. Come join an afterride and pick up a little knowledge about SF while you’re at it!

Have you ever wondered about the tunnels that were never built through your neighborhood? Or where SF put its statue of Gandhi? Or how close you are to the Bubonic Plague? Come join a relaxed bike ride to explore more locations described in the Thinkwalks iPhone app from Know What guides.

We’ll ride from spot to spot visiting some of the places listed in the Thinkwalks guide called Everything Explained. You’re welcome to make requests for locations to visit, but we’ll only pick a handful to see. Others we’ll just pry open with our minds.

No need to have the iPhone app. The ride is free, and no RSVP is needed. Feel free to call with questions!

Meet at the parklet ‘Deep built. Gathering from 3:30 to 4, leaving at 4:15.
