Brits Biking the Bridge Meet-up - 12 Sept

Okay, chaps,

I thought of a fun event that we could all try: A group bike ride from Fisherman's Wharf to Sausilito. (I know: very "Touristy" but you'd be amazed how many of us who actually live here haven't done this yet!). You don’t need to be a good cyclist or own a bike - see below:


The Plan

We meet by the silver sculpture on the grass lawn 50 yards to the south (back towards the ferry building) of the Acquarium of the Bay at Fishermans Wharf at 1.30 pm (I'll be there with my Union flag!)

We will cycle (nice and gently) along the Embarcadero, through Crissy Fields and up over the GG bridge before heading downhill to Sausilito. There we can lock our bikes and head in to the British-owned "Wellingtons Wine bar" http://www.wellington... for some well deserved refershments. They don’t have much food but there's a great chippie across the street you can get some take-out from before coming to the bar.
Don’t have a bike?

Easy, you can rent one for just $28 per day from Blazing Saddles http://blazingsaddles... at various locations around SF including at Fisherman's Wharf. Print and take this voucher for a 10% discount http://blazingsaddles...


Travelling back to SF

Ferry or Bike- take your pick!

The last ferry back to Fisherman's Wharf is at 7.45pm (there are also 5pm and 6 pm sailings) and the last ferry back to the SF Ferry Building is 6.35pm (there's a 5.35pm sailing too) - see links to schedules below:

Don't want to cycle?
Just meet us at Wellingtons- it opens at 3pm and we (the "cycle gang") should arrive not long after....I hope!


Try not to be late and, if you're renting a bike, try to allow enough time to get it prior to the 1.30 departure time. If you are running late though or can’t find us then call me on[masked] 2521 so we can wait for you. Also, if you want to join us en-route (Fort Mason etc) let me know that too so we can expect you.

Hope to see many of you there!

Cheers

Rob

    I'm afraid I managed to miss everyone! I still did the cycle ride which was great. All in all, it was a lovely afternoon which would have been even better with the company of the Brit Bikers :-)

    Hi! Most likely, I won't make the bike ride but would love to meet the cycle gang at Wellingtons! ~
