Bike Parade

What is a bike party without a bike ride? The day will be kicked-off with you in your San Francisco best at 11am (Parade registration begins at 10am) for a fun and frolicking ride through Golden Gate Park and beyond! The optional $5 ride donation goes to support the bicycle advocacy work of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council. It’ll be a hoot and a holler, we promise.

Afternoon Ballyhoo

Two parts bike rodeo and one part circus, starting at noon, there will be fire-jumping bike acts, cycling games, live music, tasty eats and great beer, of course – and all proceeds go to benefit two great nonprofits: the SFBC & the Bay Area Ridge Trails Council!

Free! Free! Free!

Now we know what you are thinking…how much is this grand fete going to cost me? The answer is nothing! We are all about FREE! So….how is this a fund raiser? All proceeds from beer sales ($5 for 16 oz.) will benefit the San Francisco Bike Coalition, and The Bay Area Ridge Trail Council. We’ll bring the beer and you just bring your bike! (FREE Valet bike parking provided–of course!)
