Friday, November 4 Women Bike SF November Coffee Club

Join the SF Bicycle Coalition for a cup of coffee and talk bikes!

Once a month, an informal gathering of women, trans* and femme-identified folks meet to talk about cycling in the city, share tips, and caffeinate. If you’re new to riding or interested but haven’t gotten to it yet, this is a perfect place to find riding buddies and answer some of your questions about biking in SF. Bring your ideas, questions, and friends. The more the merrier!
