*Your First Ride With Us?*
We try to maintain a leisurely cruising speed. Routes are designed for a
wide range of riders to keep pace. Though, with hundreds of riders on
different types of bikes, some will find hills more challenging, or have
flats and mechanical troubles. Before the ride, make sure your bicycle is in
good working order. You should be comfortable riding San Francisco streets
which may have traffic, train tracks, occasional steep hills, and other
hazards. Bring friends and make new ones riding at your speed. Within your
friends be prepared with a flat kit or to fix basic mechanical troubles. If
you see someone in need, itís good bike etiquette to help. Thatís also a
great way to make new friends in the biking community. Which is what the
Bike Party is all about!
