This Week: Women Bike Coffee Club, Paradise Loop, Urban Cycling 101

Here are this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Friday Women Bike SF Coffee Club. Once a month, an informal gathering of women, trans and femme-identified folks meet to talk about bicycling in the city, share tips and caffeinate together. If you’re new to riding or interested but haven’t gotten rolling yet, this is a place to find riding buddies and answer some of your questions about biking in SF. Women Bike SF is a SF Bicycle Coalition program that aims to encourage and inspire more women, trans and female-identified individuals to ride bikes with social events, rides and workshops. Friday, Jan. 6, 8-9 am, Duboce Park Cafe, 2 Sanchez St., S.F. RSVP requested.
  • Saturday Paradise Loop Bike Ride for Beginner/Intermediate Riders. Take a clockwise ride of Marin’s classic and gorgeous “Paradise Loop.” Please double check and make sure your bicycle is in good working order prior to the ride. The ride will have periodic stops for riders to regroup. There will be a 20–30 minute break in Tiburon before returning to the city. The ride will end at the Golden Gate Bridge south plaza. Saturday, Jan. 7, 10–3:30 PM, meet in front of Cal Academy of Sciences at 10 am. RSVP requested.
  • Saturday Urban Cycling 101 Classroom Workshop – UC Berkeley. Bike East Bay, with support from the UC Berkeley Police Department, is offering free, two-hour bicycle skills workshops. These classes are all open to the general public, but are also being offered to ticketed cyclists to qualify for a fine reduction. Saturday, Jan. 7, 1-3 pm. Dwinelle Hall, Room 209, UC Berkeley.
  • Sunday Gals with Gears: San Francisco Waterfront – North. Join the Gals for an enjoyable, easy-going ride along Embarcadero from the Ferry Building to Crissy Field and back.
