Gary & Greens: SFBC Ride and Lunch Fundraiser

From SFBC:

Pedal with mountain bike legend Gary Fisher on an exclusive fundraiser where you’ll ride and dine, supporting the SF Bicycle Coalition’s work. Mountain bike pioneer and San Francisco local, Gary Fisher, will lead a small group ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to mountain bike trails in the Marin Headlands. Then you’ll return to the city for a gourmet meal at Greens Restaurant in Fort Mason.

This ride is suitable for people newer to mountain biking as well as adventuresome for advanced riders. This will be a 22 mile round-trip, no-drop ride and is supported with pro mechanics from City Cycle. While it’s not a technical ride, the Marin Headlands are ripe with hills so endurance is needed. Tickets and Details

The Wiggle, the flattest route connecting the east and west parts of the city, is already a magnet for bike traffic. However, as the SFBC notes, new riders can […]
