For Lovers of Cycling!

We are cyclists of all levels and abilities, united by a love of the freedom, mobility and accomplishment we get from bicycle riding. All are welcome to join this group and attend the wide range of rides and events we plan and organize to suit all cyclists.

Regular rides: We meet 9:30 a.m. every Sunday morning at Mojo Bicycle Cafe on Divisadero St for an easy coffee ride connecting the city's big parks. This ride usually rolls at 8-14 mph, depending, has no-drop policy and is 60-120 minutes' duration.

Ride types: Road, Mountain Bike, Mixed Surface. We do the lot as long as it's not racing! Occasionally we organize beginner-level rides in Presidio and Golden Gate Park, but mostly we head north into Marin after meeting at the Golden Gate Bridge or Presidio Sports Basement. Occasionally there is an East Bay or Peninsula ride.

Ride pace: Most of our road rides go at an average rolling speed of 13-15 mph. Sometimes a faster ride is called, and sometimes slower. The average speed is almost never above 18 mph.

We have our own jersey, which we sell for about $45, and we charge an annual membership fee of $30. Ask Paul about purchasing a Velo Paradiso jersey.


Paid annually: $30
Membership lasts one year from the date you join.
There is a 30-day trial period before we require payment.
Sorry, but no refunds!

To Renew:

Where membership dues go:
Insurance, First Aid training for the senior ride leaders, and Social Gatherings. Anything left after this goes to a reserve fund and the purchase of Sports Basement or REI shopping vouchers to reward the most active ride leaders.
