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

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.
