Ferry Building South to Speakeasy

We will meet at the Ferry Building at 1:00 p.m. near the big stairs outside.  At 1:10 sharp we will head out. We will stop at the houseboats at Mission Bay for a lunch break, then head south along the water into China Basin, Dogpatch  and quick stop at Warm Water Cove Park.   From there we will head into the Bayview and Heron's Head Park.   There is a nice walkway there on the edge of the bay and birdwatching opportunities.  Happy Hour will be at the Speakeasy Tap Room.  http://www.yelp.com/biz/speakeasy-ales-and-lagers-san-francisco#query:Speakeasy%20Tap%20Room

Those that want to leave early can do so because we will never be too far from the T Third streetcar that can take you back to the ferry building area.  Those running late can try to catch up with us at the houseboats. (can use your phone to look it up).

The hike is pretty flat, and about 7 miles but note that the area leading up to Heron's Head Park the views are industrial.  Heron's Head Park is really very special so try not to be tempted to cut out early to head right to Speakeasy.

We will take a lunch break so bring a lunch or snack if you wish.  Bring water and a snack for Speakeasy because they don't serve food, although there may (or may not) be be a food vendor outside.  Also, I believe that Speakeasy only serves beer and tap water.  No cola or wine, at least that was the case last year when we did this hike.  Hope to see you there!

    Hi Susan. I actually showed up at 1:10 p.m. so please don't mark me as a no show. I waved (don't know if you saw me). My friend had to use restroom and the line was long and took 15 minutes. In the interim, my cell fell into the toilet and is no longer working so I was unable to email you. We were unable to find the group after that so we cut our losses and had lunch at Delancey. See you next time!

      It's my year to get everything wrong. Just trying to enjoy my mistakes now! This was a great hike. I'm sure there's some catchy way to post with the time warp idea, I just can't quite get it!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
