Bicycle ride: Golden Gate Park around Lake Merced and back

  • This location is shown only to members

Join the Gals for an enjoyable, easy-going ride. We'll start and end at the Golden Gate Park Music Concourse.
Route: West through the park, 34th Ave south to Lake Merced. We'll circle the lake then head north via Sloat Blvd to Great Highway and back to the Music Concourse.

Distance: About 14 miles, mostly flat (uphill about 750ft elevation over the entire ride). We won't leave anyone behind. We ride at a relaxed pace.

Rain cancels. Will send a message via Meetup if we cancel to those who RSVP for this ride.

Helmets required

Basic riding skills required. 

Bring your questions -- 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 2pm.

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). Members of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition? No fee suggested. 

Questions:
1) Are you at least 50 years old?
2) Do you have your own bike?

4) How long have you been riding (most recently)?
5) What distance are you most comfortable riding: 1-5 miles? 5-10 miles? or 10-20 miles? More?

    The ride lived up to its billing, 'enjoyable and easy going'. Good pace, great scenery and excellent weather.

    Hi, Sandra: I'll be coming from Marin, too. I live in Tiburon. What I like to do is to drive to the GGRNA parking lot and bike across the bridge to my SF destination. Does that hold any appeal for you? My bike rack holds 3 bikes.

    At 74, and a new knee, I now take it easier, but only because I find I don't recover well after riding too hard. What's with that?

  • Lenore M.

    I know the feeling! Looking forward to our ride.

    Looking forward to it. I am coming from Marin if anyone wants to carpool.

    I'll be there.
