Ride: Friday, August
5 | Theme: Steampunk | Gather 7:30 PM, Rollout 8 PM | Meet United Nations Plaza|
San Francisco Bike Party, recently dubbed the best new chain-gang by the SF Guardian, will be holding a steampunk ride on Friday, August 5. We can’t wait to see everyone display their steam powered bicycles, Victorian style, and sci-fi imagination. It’s a good thing this month’s theme encourages wearing wool because the route will be heading to west portal via golden gate park and then onward to the beach.
How We Ride:
Stay in the right lane
Stop at red lights
Leave No Trace
Ride predictably and in control
Roll past conflict
When in doubt, “Bike Party!!”
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, it’s good bike etiquette to help. That’s also a great way to make new friends in the biking community. Which is what the Bike Party is all about!
