The casual ride is for folks who are interested in a mellow cruise down to Pescadero. Though the pace will be mellow, please be sure that you are a competent rider capable of riding 50+ miles with hills. All riders should come prepared with their own tools/parts for basic roadside repairs—minimally, this would include a multitool, patch kit, spare tube, spoke wrench, pump, and lights.
We’ll be doing Sunday, June 20 drops at the top of the hill to the Menlo Park Caltrain station. We’ll run the bus as long as it takes to get everybody to the top of the hill for a downhill ride of about 15 miles to the Menlo Park Caltrain station. We can also provide you with directions all the way back to SF, as well as directions to get you up over the hills to the Menlo Park Caltrain station (about 30 miles from the farm). There might also be room for a couple of folks & bikes to ride all the way back to SF in the short bus, but don’t count on it.
We will likely not be doing hill drops this year. You have to ride back to San Francisco or ride to the Caltrain station on your own or as a group with others. We’ll hook you up with directions.
We’ll transport one bag for you, from SF to Pescadero and back. Pick up your bag on Sunday at Dolores Park, where I’ll be posting up for a few hours in the afternoon into the early evening. If that doesn’t work for you, we can work something out.
We go with the flow out in Pescadero, so we aren’t on any tight time schedule. If you have to be back in SF by a certain time, it may be best for you to ride out whenever you need to instead of counting on the bus leaving at a particular time.
Cyprian’s Center, 2097 Turk (at Lyon)
As usual, come eat food, drink beer, and watch a bike movie! Food served around 7:30pm, movie starts around 8pm. COME EARLY to help out!
ALSO! We’d superly appreciate any food you could bring to share! I’ll be away this weekend, thus won’t be able to glean quite as much as usual, but we’ll make it work! Bring anything and we’ll use it (half a box of pasta? Some wilting greens? That can of beans that’s been on your shelf for a year? Whatever).
We’ll be watching this:
DasBike-In Movie Nights
What: A monthly series of community, food, beer, and bike-related films. Bring your bike in, lay your blanket out on the floor (picnic style, but inside), grab some food & beer, and enjoy the show.
When: The fourth Tuesdays of January, February, & March.
7:30pm – Show up
8:00pm – Films start
Earlier – If you’d like to volunteer to help cook dinner, we could use folks as early as 4.30pm! Email dasbikesf at gmail to help out!
Why: Cyprian’s is a community organization that I care about, and you should too. Cyprian’s Center aims to be “a community-based, volunteer-driven hub of collaboration that connects artists, advocates for a more resilient and sustainable future, and anyone seeking a deeper sense of community.” The Center needs to renovate the kitchen so we all can do more events there. Bike-In Movie Nights will be another opportunity for folks to check out the space and get involved. To learn more about the kitchen renovation project, visit http://www.cyprianscommunitykitchen.org/
Cost: Dinner and movies will be free of charge (donations of any amount will be much appreciated). We’ll be reaching out to community partners to donate food as well as gleaning food from farmers markets in the days leading up to the event. Comrades Brewing will be selling beer, with the proceeds going right back into the kitchen renovation.
Bring stuff to take food home in, in case we have leftovers!
