Practice Ride for Adult Beginning Bicyclists

Sunday, March 18 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

New to biking? Need help getting ready for Traffic Skills 101 class? Come practice with Juli, alumna of the SF Bicycle Coalition Adult Learn to Ride class, as well as other experienced riders. We’ll do an easy ride in Golden Gate Park’s car-free space, then ride a bit in traffic, and end with tasty treats in the Richmond District!

This isn’t a class, but rather a fun practice ride for people getting comfortable riding. The ride avoids hills, and experienced cyclists will be around to accompany us. Feel free to leave early if you’re not ready for street traffic. Put your bike on the bus or rent one close by and join us! Email juli@sfbike.org with questions about the ride.

Meeting Location: Look for the SF Bicycle Coalition banner in front of the large staircase at the Conservatory of Flowers at Golden Gate Park.

Schedule:
• 
10-10:45AM: Optional skills practice and refresher (at Pompeii circle by the Conservatory of Flowers; map)
• 10:45AM: Meet group for ride at Conservatory of Flowers staircase
• 2PM: Approximate ending time (with treats!)

If you aren’t ready to bike to the starting location by yourself, you can always place your bike on the bus – we’ve got a video to show you how! Or, you can rent a bike from any rental shops near the park. Please call them for rates, details and to make any needed reservations – remember to show up early enough to get to the meeting point.
