San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Pedal with mountain bike legend Gary Fisher on this exclusive ride and dine event. Gary Fisher will lead a small group ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to mountain bike trails in the Marin Headlands. Then you'll return to the city for a gourmet meal at Greens Restaurant. Come rub elbows and hear stories from this local mountain bike pioneer while supporting the work of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition.
This ride is suitable for people newer to mountain biking as well as adventuresome for advanced riders. This will be a 23 mile round-trip, no-drop ride and is supported with pro mechanics from City Cycle. While it's not a technical ride, the Marin Headlands are ripe with hills so endurance is needed.
Space is limited to 20 riders. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions
