SFBP #85 – Rain Route, formerly: EPIC Bridge & Tunnel Bike Party

For some reason the first Friday of each month seems to make a great time to summon in much needed rain to our region. As you are surely aware, SF Bike Party has historically canceled with rain. In fact, the threat of rain of canceled our EPIC Bridge & Tunnel route when we tried it a few months ago. Well, no more we say, we have decided to try something new this month—we introduce to you, a rain route.

Since the forecast for rain on Friday March 2nd is staying strong we will be riding a new route designed with rain in mind. We are keeping it simple this time around, a short ride (7mi) with one covered party stop.

We’ll meet up under the awnings at the Ferry Building at 7:30pm, throw a party stop underneath Interstate 280 in Mission Bay, and finish underneath the Bay Bridge. It’s flat, the party stops are covered, and we stick to bike routes where possible. We feel these measures give SFBP the opportunity to keep our riders safe while at the same time get out and ride on the first Friday of the month.

So what do you say? Want to join us?
