Tour de Fat

Bikes! Beer! Beat Antique! Benefits 2 great non-profits working to improve biking in Bay Area.

So here is the plan: People who want to take BART from the East Bay or Peninsula (with CalTrain) meet at 9:30 a.m. at Civic Center BART, outside, up on the street level on the UN Plaza side by the BART exit. We will ride from there to Golden Gate Park.
If you miss us; or want to meet up closer to Lindley Meadow, we'll bike to 30th and Fulton Street just outside the park. Southwest corner of 30th and Fulton. We'll wait there for more Meetupers from 10:15 a.m.-10:30 a.m.

We'll roll out at 10:30 to Lindley Meadow for the Tour de Fat parade!  Then, enjoy the festivities afterwards!  Otherwise, we'll find a place to meet after the parade in case you don't have a bike.

Coy T. [masked].  I'll plan to wear my white nylon bike windbreaker.  Riding a grey mountain bike. 

Julie S. [masked] (cell) I'll be the chick on a classic Bridgestone hybrid bike; pink or purple cycling jacket.

    Hey I'm coming from Oakland on BART. If anyone wants to coordinate with me, send a message. It sounds like the rest of us should meet in SF Golden Gate Park, before the start of the parade at 11. I will definitely be watching the Moth True Stories event and try to taste all the beers. Looking forward to meeting you all.

    Is there an organizer for this fun event?

    If not, I'd be more than happy to lead for the parade and we can play the rest by beer, I mean, ear? There's a private "beer school" at 2:15 given by a New Belgium beer expert.
