This is the official monthly club ride for all members (guests are always welcome). The ride offers different distance and level options where once a month all DSSF club members can get out, ride and socialize with the club. The ride starts from Peet‘s in the Castro. There are three options so you can go at your own pace and distance so please pick the appropriate option to your level of ability, we want to make sure you enjoy the day. The rides split and regroup in Tiburon where we have lunch together as a group. This ride is usually on the second Saturday of each month.

Let’s enjoy Morgan Territory before the summer heat envelops one of our favorite club rides. This version starts at Pleasant Hill BART. We’ll get to Clayton via the Contra Costa and Ygnacio Canal trails before jumping onto Ygnacio Valley Road, which has a good shoulder. We’ll stop briefly in Clayton before heading out Marsh Creek and Morgan Territory roads. At the top, Morgan Territory Preserve, we’ll stop again to replenish before the fast and perilous descent. Then we’ll head west to Danville for a lunch break with nothing but a pleasant, flat run back to Pleasant Hill along the Iron Horse afterwards.

Ride Code: 3.5-B-4

A morning jaunt up Twin Peaks from the Castro. The route is Castro, 18th, Diamond, 17th, Corbett, Portola, Twin Peaks.

We‘ve been riding at a B pace - it‘s been taking us around half an hour to get to the top of Twin Peaks, something like that.

Some of us are commuting to work, and we ask anyone who wants to join to please come on time. We‘ll ride out at 6:45 sharp. Text me if you‘re running a minute or two late, or feel free to chase the group.

The "official" ride is to the top of Twin Peaks. Decided and ride after that, depending on how much time you have and what the group wants to do.

Let‘s try something different. The pink triangle on the side of Twin Peaks, all lit up from dusk to dawn, is gorgeous. Let‘s ride our bikes up the hill just before sunset and have a closer look at the light show from some different angles.

We’ll ride from Hibernia Beach (the plaza in front of Bank of America at 18th and Castro) in the Castro, and take mostly side streets up to Twin Peaks. We can expect anything from a gorgeous sunset to being engulfed by a fog and blasted by wind, and anything in-between - it is San Francisco in the summer! Dress accordingly!

June 22 is one of the longest days of the year (sunset is 8:35). But be sure to bring lights if you think you might want to linger at the top. Expect to take something like half an hour to forty-five minutes for the climb.

Whew, after the year we just had, we need a party. And not just any party but a rolling party...with donuts and coffee! Come celebrate Pride 2021 with a bicycle tour on the western side of San Francisco. We‘ve got a new start, new routes, new junk food, and a new attitude. (Thanks Patti!) Our all-inclusive Pride Ride starts at the Stow Lake Boathouse in Golden Gate Park. We‘ll head out the Great Highway and then circle Lake Merced before heading back to Stow Lake. Don‘t forget--the Great Highway is car free! That‘s a flat 15-mile ride. What? You want more riding, more riding, more riding? Well, rise and shine a bit earlier and we‘ll do a parade through the Castro and then up Twin Peaks to greet the Pink Triangle before heading back to Stow Lake to join the party people on the all-inclusive ride. That‘s about another 12 miles with about 1,000 ft. of climbing.
