SFBC Monthly Good Road Ride: Potrero, Once Is Not Enough

"The Good Roads Riders return to Potrero Hill determined to get the job done. Last month’s “Circling the Hill” was too much fun and too formidable for just one sweep. Potrero bikers especially encouraged to join and make your daily rides smoother and safer. First-timers — from all over the city – always welcome. These rides are a great way to meet other cyclists and make San Francisco even better for biking. Drinks and lunch always follow our noble efforts."
