Geek Bike Ride JavaOne 2012
Saturday, September 29, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Enjoy the best the Bay Area has to offer by riding a bicycle across the Golden Gate Bridge.
We'll meet at Fisherman's Wharf and ride across the bridge and down into Sausalito, and then take a ferry back to the city. This is a beginner/intermediate ride, roughly 8 miles and takes 1.5 hours to ride. I expect we'll have several photograph stops, and we'll stop for a treat in Sausalito. There are three big hills (two steep ones going up Fort Mason and the approach to the bridge, and one fun downhill into Sausalito), but (obviously) the bridge is flat and easy. The hardest part may be dodging pedestrians on the bridge!
All geeks and their friends are invited. Meet at Blazing Saddles bikes at 2715 Hyde St.
If you want to reserve a particular bike, you can reserve it in advance online.
Bike rental is $30-$40 USD, there's a 10% discount if you reserve online.
