Bikes to Books Six-Year Anniversary Ride
October 12, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
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 Books 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. Since 2013, we’ve been leading our signature 7.1 mile tour of literary San Francisco from South Park to North Beach, Jack London to Jack Kerouac, and we’re excited to celebrate our six-year anniversary with you! Bring anecdotes or snippets of work of the featured authors to share, or just come learn their stories as we ride through the city.
Meet us on the north side of Jack London in South Park at 12:45. Bring bikes with gears, snacks, and enthusiasm. This is an urban ride of moderate difficulty, recommended for riders 16 years of age and older.
Saturday, October 12, 12:45-4:00 p.m.
North side of Jack London Alley, in South Park, SF
Tour ends in North Beach outside City Lights Books
Event is Free, with maps and posters available for purchase.
