SFBC Bike Rec Ride: Filipino History Tour

From SFBC:

In celebration of October’s Filipino History Month, explore the Filipino historical landmarks of San Francisco. From the Filipino American Mural at San Francisco State University to the rise of the I-Hotel in the Financial District, the Filipino community has proudly been a part of SF neighborhoods since the late 1800’s. Share in this 25 mile cycling experience and pedal your way through history. It’s an aggressive ride, but well worth it!

SF Bicycle Coalition recreational rides are free for SFBC members (a $5 donation from non-members is appreciated); rain cancels rides.
