Early Bird Ride -- CANCELED

Distance: 3.5+ miles
Pace: B (moderate, occasional stops)
Terrain: 4 (hills, some steep climbs, with some relief)
Elevation gain: 880 feet.

There aren’t many better ways to start the day than being on your bike. Come join the early bird crew for a bitty spin to start your day. We’ll begin at Philz in the Castro and take mostly side streets up to Twin Peaks. We can expect anything from a gorgeous silver sunrise over the city, to being engulfed by a navy grey shroud of fog, and anything in-between.  

From Twin Peaks, it's a "decide and ride," like they used to do in the club's earlier years. You can either wander back to the Castro, head westward for an up close look at Ocean Beach, take a loop around Lake Merced, or meander through the ticky-tacky houses of Daly City.  The route you take back to the Castro can be whatever you like - Golden Gate Park is always nice early in the day, and the Wiggle a nice bypass for tired legs. 

While our routes may be malleable, you’re sure to have fun on this one.  Come on out - we’d love to have you along!!  :-)   

Important: we will cancel this ride if the air quality index (AQI) is higher than 60 at 6 AM or if the chance of rain is 30% or greater. Please check your email/texts for a possible cancellation notice. IF WE CANCEL, YOU WON'T RECEIVE A CANCELLATION NOTICE IF YOU DON'T REGISTER.

And don't forget to wear your helmet!
