Gals With Gears: Ride to Rodeo Beach With the Gals

Saturday, October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

FREE

Explore the bay with the Gals! These monthly scenic rides are geared for women aged 50-plus-years young, but all riders are welcome.

Join for a ride from Golden Gate Park across the Golden Gate Bridge to Hawk Hill, down to Rodeo Beach, and return across the bridge and back to Golden Gate Park.

Arrive by 9:45 am for rollout promptly at 10:00 am.

Start/End: Golden Gate Park Bandshell.

This is a Level C ride — Distance: ~22 miles. Elevation: ~1,500 feet. Gusty winds possible.

We will follow Arguello north to the Presidio, head over the Golden Gate Bridge and ride up Conzelman Road to Hawk Hill. We’ll return to the traffic circle to turn onto McCullough Road and descend into Rodeo Valley and Bunker Road. Turning left, Bunker Road will take us to Rodeo Beach, past the Rodeo Lagoon, Ft. Cronkite, and the Marine Mammal Center.

We will stop at the beach to take a break. Bring a snack and water. No permanent food options are available, but restrooms are available. The beach is gravelly with pounding surf and it’s often windy – we will see shorebirds and wildlife on the steep surrounding hills. It’s a beautiful spot!

We’ll return along Bunker Road, through the tunnel to Alexander Ave and the Golden Gate Bridge. Once in SF, we’ll cross the Presidio to 15th Ave and return to Golden Gate Park and our starting point.

• We’ll show you a route, provide tips for riding in the city.

• We ride at a relaxed pace and won’t leave anyone behind.

RSVP required. Helmet and basic riding skills required.

• Not had your bicycle out in a very long while? Please have it checked over by a bike mechanic to be sure it is safe and reliable.

• The route is on multi-use paths, and roads with or without a bike lane.

• Rain cancels. We will send a message via Meetup if we cancel to those who RSVP for this ride.

• Bring your questions — Anything you want to know about biking? No question is too basic — probably other Gals will have the same question!
