Hike to the Big Wheel Races on Potrero Hill

Note that this hike takes place on Easter Sunday.  We will meet in the Mission outside of Cafe La Boheme.  This is right across from the 24th Street BART station.  Then we will hike some of the hilly streets, hills and paths of Potrero Hill. After that we will head to the Big Wheel races on 20th and Vermont.  Many people feel that Vermont Street is actually more crooked than Lombard Street.  The Big Wheel races start at 4 and they may ask for a voluntary donation.  More about the races here: http://bringyourownbigwheel.com/

The races go until 6 but I am not sure we will stay for the entire thing.  After the races we will head back down to the Mission for Happy Hour.

There will be some steep hills and maybe some stairs, but a much shorter hike than our usual ones.  Hope to see you there!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
