Want to cycle in the city but feel uneasy about it? Join the Gals for an enjoyable, easy-going ride along Embarcadero from the Ferry Building to Chrissy Field and back. Yes, that means riding over the Ft. Mason hill -- but you can do it! We'll show you a route, provide tips for riding in the city, and have a relaxing ride.
Distance: About 10 miles. And we won't leave anyone behind.
Basic riding skills required.
We'll provide SASSY instructions for Gals: Select a Bike / Adjust a Helmet / Secure a Bike / Safe Riding Rules / You Can Get Up That Hill!
If renting a bicycle, there is a 'Bike and Roll' rental place at the foot of Market Street by the Hyatt Regency. Please reserve your bike for 9:30 so we can pedal away from the plaza at 10am. We will return by 1 pm.
We are grateful for all the good work of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and urge you join. A $10 fee is suggested for non-members of San Francisco Bicycle Coalition OR you GALS can join SFBC for a special price of $25 for a one-year membership (normally $35).
