Ride Leaders Appreciation Dinner

This is our long-delayed-by-Covid dinner to thank 2020 through 2023 ride leaders and event hosts. Because of their fantastic volunteerism, we are able to appreciate bicycling together rather than alone. Please join us to honor your fellow club members who have made our cycling so much more enjoyable and members who have opened their homes to our club.

This year our dinner will take place at il Casaro Pizzeria in the Castro where we held our 40th anniversary dinner in 2022. If you’ve dined at Il Casaro, you know that they have amazing food. Vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options will be available.

Menu (not final):


Bruschetta di caponata (Vegan) - Eggplant* Red Bell Pepper* Balsamic
Insalata Mista (Vegetarian) - Romaine* Raddichio * Garbanzo * Pickled Onion * Shaved Parmesan … Will send one without parmesan to make the dish vegan


Bucatini Amatriciana - Bacon* Pecorino cheese* Tomato sauce
Spaghetti Cacio & Pepe (Vegetarian) - Pecornio cheese* Black Pepper
(I've asked the restaurant if a vegan option is a possibility)


Marinara (Vegan) - Tomato sauce* Basil* Olives* EVO
Prosciutto - San Danielle Prosciutto* Tomato Sauce* Arugula* Parmesan 

Il Casaro is near the intersection of Church and Market Streets and is easily accessible by Muni Metro. If you plan to bicycle to the dinner, make sure you have a robust lock(s); there is a small bike rack in front. But honestly we recommend that you use public transportation so you don't lose your bike.

The cost is $40 for current members who didn't lead a club ride or host a club event, and includes everything except beverages. Club Express adds a mandatory $2 convenience fee for non-members if using a credit card to pay. (So, members be sure to log in before registering and paying.)
