Civic Center Quad (Larkin and Grove)
Friday, September 2nd, 2011 | 7:30pm gather | 8pm roll
This SFBP tours some of SF’s most swanky, hip, and scenic hoods. Lotsa SF ❤ LOVE in this route, taking our peoples to places they haven't discovered yet or didn't know bikers could easily get to.
We'll start at Civic Center, roll thru Hayes Valley night life, up Fillmore past Yoshi's and Rassala's, then a quick detour thru Japan Town. Hai Hai! There's a few blocks of climb with flats between, and a loop, so slower riders can rest while faster riders zoom up to… the Return to Alta Plaza! Its incredible views and playground were beloved in January. (as always, please leave no trace!)
The second leg of the night is downhill and flat touring Cow Hollow mansions, then thru the Presidio past ILM and YODA, over the bridge in the estuary, arriving at Chrissy Field for dancing by the Bay in view of GG Bridge, Sausalito and Tiburon. We have a SURPRISE planned there, to be revealed the night of!
The last leg is an easy tour to recharge dancing legs. Beginning by the Palace of Fine Arts (photo op!) we’ll roll thru Chesnut nightlife, North Point, and the Embarcadero passing the Ferry Bldg. We’ll end the night with a dance party at Rincon Park under the Arrow and the Bay Bridge.
BART and Caltrain are close for those who party till last train.
If the weather gets chilly, we have sheltered route and party options to keep everything toasty.
This will be an EPIC night of SF Bike Partying. Come thru!
