— Map My Ride route (link here)

Join us for the 4th San Francisco Bike Party!

We have an amazing route planned and with a break in the rain, it’s time to get out! Get your nerd on with this month’s theme of Robots and Cyborgs.

The ride will take a leisurely tour of Golden Gate Park, the Sunset and Haight St, while rocking to mobile sound systems, and stopping to regroup and party along the way.

We will have t-shirts available with a suggested donation price of $20 — exact change appreciated!

How We Ride:
– Stay in the right lane
– Stop at red lights
– Leave No Trace
– Ride predictably and in control
– Roll past conflict
– Ride Prepared
– When in doubt, “Bike Party!!”

Your First Ride With Us?
We try to maintain a leisurely cruising speed. Routes are designed for a wide range of riders to keep pace. Though, with hundreds of riders on different types of bikes, some will find hills more challenging, or have flats and mechanical troubles. Before the ride, make sure your bicycle is in good working order. You should be comfortable riding San Francisco streets which may have traffic, train tracks, occasional steep hills, and other hazards. Bring friends and make new ones riding at your speed. Within your friends be prepared with a flat kit or to fix basic mechanical troubles. If you see someone in need, it’s good bike etiquette to help. That’s also a great way to make new friends in the biking community. Which is what the Bike Party is all about!

  7. Great ride. Best since January’s birthday ride. The long sweeping roads within Golden Gate Park without stoplights or stop signs were a big smile factor and adding some much needed mileage. The roundup points were stellar. Thank you volunteers for keeping the group together! Bike party!

    Thank you for so much fun,
