Bikes to Books Five-Year Anniversary Spring Ride

May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Celebrate five years of Bikes to Books with our annual spring ride! Combining San Francisco history, art, literature, cycling, and urban exploration, Bikes to Books began as an homage to the 1988 street-naming project spearheaded by City Lights founder and former San Francisco Poet Laureate, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, in which 12 San Francisco streets were renamed for famous artists and authors who had once made San Francisco their home. The resulting 7.1-mile tour is a diverting and unique way to celebrate both the literary and the adventurous spirit of San Francisco. Learn about the authors and neighborhoods that made San Francisco a known literary hub, from South Park to North Beach, Jack London to Jack Kerouac, all from the comfort of your own bicycle seat!

 

Bring bikes with gears, snacks, and enthusiasm.

 

This is an urban ride of moderate difficulty, recommended for riders 16 years of age and older.

 

Meet at 12:45 p.m. at Jack London Alley

(Northside of South Park in San Francisco)

Ride will commence at 1:00 p.m. sharp

Ride will end at approximately 4:00 p.m. in North Beach

(outside City Lights Books)
