SFBC Port 150th Anniversary History Ride

From SFBC:

The Port of San Francisco is turning 150 years old this year and will be co-leading a history bike tour with the SF Bicycle Coalition. Come hear about the history of the Port’s creation, and the path the agency has taken to become not only a world-renowned destination, but also a vibrant and active industrial, cargo, recreational boating, and commercial fishing port.

Port staff will be sharing the history of many locations on the route from the ship repair drydock at Pier 70 to the fishermen’s chapel and fleet at Fisherman’s Wharf’s.

Free for SF Bicycle Coalition members; $5 donation for non-members; rain cancels rides.
