My wife and I will be doing this ~15 mile route at a relaxed pace to train for the Tour de Peninsula. No drop, non-stop, 8-10mph rolling pace. A HELMET IS REQUIRED, as are a spare tube and a way to inflate it. IF YOU MISS THE SAFETY TALK YOU MAY NOT JOIN THE RIDE. We will roll at 10am promptly. Please check your bike's condition at least 24 hours in advance as these rides sometimes bring out riders that haven't ridden their bikes for a while. I don't drive so I can't advise where people should park. Remember, you’ll have your bike with you so you don’t need to park close to the start. Bring plenty of water, wear sunscreen and in SF it’s wise to carry an extra layer of clothing with you. A windbreaker is usually enough. I hope to repeat this ride with different yet similar routes every Sunday until the Tour De Peninsula where we're doing the 30 mile course. Roads are 100% paved and the routes are chosen for minimal traffic and wide shoulders, I know these roads well. Safety and comfort on the road is paramount.
The statue is at the very East end of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle across from the DMV.
This ride will be a little longer and have a little more climbing than Sunday's Presidio ride but we will maintain the same spirit as the last ride. Anyone expecting a faster pace should not join.
