Come roll with Greenbelt Alliance, the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, and the American Planning Association's Young Planners Group on this 18-mile bike ride from San Francisco, across that pretty red bridge people always talk about, and through the southern Marin bayside corridor.
Get educated about efforts on both sides of the Golden Gate Bridge to improve bike safety, past and current development proposals that threaten the Marin Headlands, and how tunnels and trains will transform commutes.
This ride will be co-led by Anna Gore of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and Shannon Fiala of the Young Planners Group. We'll be taking the 1:40 p.m. ferry back to San Francisco from Larkspur Ferry Terminal—fare details below.
Note: There will be many opportunities to rest along the way, but if you are uncomfortable biking above a 10-mph pace over this distance, this may not be the right outing for you. If you have questions about the skill level necessary for this ride, contact Adam Garcia at email@example.com.
