Join the Bike Parade to a Family-Friendly Winterfest

What better way to go to a bike party than by bike? The SF Bicycle Coalition invites parents and children to meet up at 1:30 pm Sunday, Dec. 2  in the Panhandle, then ride together to our annual Winterfest party. The new location at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park and afternoon hours (from 2:00 to 6:00 pm) are perfect for families. Special children’s activities will make this year’s event a festive occasion for all ages.

SF Bicycle Coalition staff will lead the easy 1.9-mile bike ride to Winterfest. We’ll meet at Baker and Fell streets in the Panhandle, take the bike/pedestrian path and continue to a car-free JFK Drive and other park streets. This is a great opportunity to try out your biking skills as a family. Bring your baby on board with a trailer, bike seat or family bike. Encourage friends to ride in the “bike train” — and enjoy a great party with your bike-loving buddies.

Join the Bike Parade!


Winterfest is SF Bicycle Coalition’s largest party of the year. Best of all, children 12 and under get in for free! There’s fun for everyone with new entertainment as well as the popular all-ages crafts projects. The Family Zone includes a comfy corner and a learn-to-ride area where our Freedom from Training Wheels volunteers will help the littlest riders try out balance bikes.

RSVP for the Family Bike Parade on the registration form when you purchase your ticket to Winterfest.
