Ice Cream Sunday Ride

"Join your fellow SFBC members on a fun & tasty ride to some of SF’s top ice cream Shops! We’ll ride and sample at least 6 top-rated creameries across the city where we’ll stop to taste flavors and socialize. The ride will be a leisurely 10-12 miles with at least 6 shops and will include a few hills to work off the extra calories. Child riders (14 or younger) are discouraged, since this ride will require some skilled street riding. Bring a lock, water bottle, and ice cream money & hope for a hot day!"
