San Francisco Bike Party

November Theme: Dia de las Bicicletas!

Leaves are blowing, the air is cold and dry. It’s early November! The end of a season, and a time when many cultures around the world remember the dead and celebrate the living.

In the Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos, remembering the dead is no solemn occasion. The day is marked with processions, decorative altars, celebration, and the consumption of delicious food, sugar skulls — and tequila!

Our November ride will be marked by marigolds and skeletons as we ride together in memory of the friends and loved ones we’ve lost and in celebration of our own ongoing lives! Join us and join the living!
