This Week in Livable Streets Events

Take advantage of summer and the joys of cycling by joining some fun outings this week. And, review large and small scale improvement projects with SPUR and Supervisor Mirkarimi. Here are the highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Wednesday: Wiggle to the Market. Donning a helmet and pulling up on your bike will net you reusable shopping bags, coupons for free fruit and good times on this group ride to the Upper Haight Farmer’s Market. 5:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday: EBBC and Berkeley Bike Station Open House Party & Movie Night. Celebrate the opening of the country’s second largest bike station in Berkeley and the East Bay Bicycle Coalition’s new office. Have a beer and chat up fellow cyclists, marvel at the sparkling new bike racks, and head to the theater to watch Inception. 6:00-9:15 p.m.
  • Friday: SF 2 Google First Friday Friendly Frolic. This truly friendly ride, with a No Rider Left Behind policy, will ensure that you reach Mountain View in once piece and in good spirits. 12:30 p.m.
