NOW! Festival: History Ride Around the Panhandle

From SF Bicycle Coalition:

The NOW! Festival challenged us with this: What would you do to make the Panhandle extraordinary for one week?

How about a slow ride around the Panhandle, taking time to learn about the history of our streets and envisioning what the future of our neighborhood could look like?

We will start on the Panhandle at Masonic Avenue and do a comfortable, 5-mile ride of the different streets and bike routes around the neighborhood. If you’ve ever wondered when Golden Gate Park was created or where “The Wiggle” got its name, this is the ride for you! We’ll stop at the different locations before looping back to the Panhandle. More details to come.

Ride is free, but donations to benefit NOW! Festival are welcome. Learn more about the festival here: nowsf.org
