Event description

Description

Shirley Johnson will share highlights of her solo bicycle tour from the Arctic Ocean at Tuktoyaktuk, Canada to the Pacific Ocean at Valdez, Alaska.

She rode over 1600 miles on mostly gravel roads through stunning landscapes.

Camping was usually the only option on this remote ride. Hear how she dealt with predators both large (like bears) and small (like mosquitoes).

See the specially outfitted Surly Troll gravel bike she rode.

Sample the homemade energy bars she took on her trip (freshly made, of course).

Come to her presentation and participate vicariously in her epic journey.

Shirley Johnson is an 18-year SFBC member and serves on the board of directors. She has toured over 30,000 miles including two solo rides from Anchorage, Alaska to San Francisco.

If you are arriving by bicycle, please bring your bike indoors.
