City of Souls–One City One Book Colma Cemetery Bike Ride

"See the cemeteries and gravesites of historic figures that inspired Doug Dorst’s Alive in Necropolis. After the tour, there will be an option to ride back to San Francisco with the group. Tour leader Chris Carlsson is the Director of FoundSF.org, a living archive of San Francisco history, and the author of books on San Francisco. Co-sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. Rain cancels (atmospheric heavy fog does not!). Bring weather appropriate gear, lots of water and a bag lunch for this hilly ride!"
