San Francisco’s fixed gear cyclists are famous for climbing steep hills and navigating one-way streets while dodging our dinosaur-fueled machines. For a change of pace, these events reclaim our city’s streets and re-imagine a Bay Area without cars. Join the ranks of San Francisco’s bi-peddlers for these summer excursions.
SF’s Bike Coalition welcomes you with a weekly street side party, featuring treats and services like pumping tires and lubing chains. Make a pit stop even if it’s just for a tasty snack!
Through Aug 26
Various San Francisco locations
Put on by the city of San Francisco to encourage health, community and fun. Sunday Streets restricts access to stretches of different neighborhood streets so that pedestrians and bicyclists can frolic auto-free. Check out the site for the full schedule.
