Kick back at Sunday Streets on Valencia and 24th Streets this weekend for the third car-free event in the Mission this year.

Here’s just a taste of all the activities available for kids: REI’s Block of Fun includes a climbing wall, disc golf, and a bike obstacle course. Kids just learning to ride a bike can sharpen their skills at YBike’s Bike Safety Rodeo and the SF Bicycle Coalition’s Freedom From Training Wheels.

Of course, anyone without wheels can get a free bike rental from ParkWide. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are even holding a Blessing of the Bicyclists. There’s also swing dancing, yoga, free massages, roller disco, and lots more.

Next year could hold even more than the four consecutive Mission events this year. Excited?

(This story originally appeared on the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition’s blog) There are two factions in this city as polarized as Republicans and Democrats, and the debate is taking place on playgrounds across San Francisco: training wheels, or balance bikes? For those of you […]
