Go for an easy beginner ride
You’re invited to join our Saturday morning, beginners group ride starting from and ending at our San Francisco, Performance Bicycle store. The ride is geared towards beginners with a desire to learn and improve their skills, and those getting back on the saddle. It is a great way to learn recreational routes in and around San Francisco and meet other cyclists. The average pace will be between 11 and 13 miles per hour, and the distance will be between 18 and 28 miles. Climbing will vary from 300' to 1200' (this is the hilly bay area after all). Almost all the riding will be on designated bike lanes, or streets well marked with "sharrows". Some will be on separated bike lanes. This is a "no-drop" ride, and we will have a sweep rider whenever possible, as well as regrouping to assure nobody gets lost. The ride is intended to be fun, challenging, and an opportunity to learn the techniques that help you advance ind increase your fitness and pleasure. Because last week's route was changed due to air quality, we are posting the same route for this week. This ride has a bit of challenge in some of the climbing and descent, but is scenic and fun. https://www.strava.com/activities/1859104659 The ride meets at the store every Saturday morning, 9:00 am and leaves by 9:30 am. We generally return to the store by 12:30- 1:00 pm as there are regrouping stops and some social time. Come out and join our ride leaders, for some fun outdoors. Bring a helmet, waterbottle, spare tube, and fuel (we have all that at the store). If you drive to the store, please find street parking, often available without time restrictions on 7th street.

What we're about

You’re invited to join our Saturday morning, beginner and intermediate/advanced group ride starting from and ending at our San Francisco, Performance Bicycle store. We also offer a gravel ride (for mountain, gravel and cross bikes) on the first Sunday of every month. These rides are geared towards riders who want to combine fun and social interaction with fitness and the opportunity to improve strength and skills. Riders gather at our store every Saturday morning at 9:00 am and we get out on the road by 9:30 most mornings. All these rides are "no-drop" meaning we will regroup at points along the way so no riders are left behind. Come out and join our ride leaders, for some fun outdoors. Because rider ability varies, we cannot specify the end time of the rides, but generally the beginner group is back by 1:00, and the intermediate group by 3:30. On most routes there are convenient turn around points for those with limited time.

Bring a helmet, water bottle, spare tube.
