We all remember how much fun we had exploring the neighborhood on bikes as kids. What's stopping you from enjoying the same thrill around the Bay Area now? Even if you haven't been to a SoulCycle class—let alone hopped on an actual bike—in months, you'll find a ride on this list that is just your speed.
On Friday night, SOMArts’ lofty space will be buzzing with Bay Area bicyclists and art lovers.
City surveys show that women make up a third of all bike commuters in San Francisco. Yet those of us women who ride have little bike fashion options, compared to the bicycle dudes.

On December 3, San Francisco's cycling community will come together once again for the 6th Annual Supermarket Street Sweep, a charity event to benefit the San Francisco Food Bank. The race brings together all types of cyclists—casual riders, commuters, messengers, competitors, etc.—to help feed the city's hungry by picking up food from various grocery stores around town. This year, there are two ways that you can participate: ride in the race—speed or cargo—or fundraise at Firstgiving. To ride, just show up at Cupid's Span (Folsom & Embarcadero) on Saturday, December 3 at noon.
There are only two Thursdays left in July, which means there are only two SFBC Happy Hours left! SFBC happy hour is like those magical hours at your favorite bar but instead of deals on booze in one palce, the SFBC pick a location along popular commutes each week and offers tasty treats, a free tire pumping, and deals at local businesses. This week's happy hour is at Fell and Masonic, so for those of you who regularly wiggle your way home to the Haight and beyond, this is your chance to catch some free stuff during your commute. Next week catch happy hour at Duboce Park. SFBC Happy hour runs from 5-7.
