When I first started biking in San Francisco eight years ago, I was one of only a few women riding. On a morning commute, I’d recognize and often know every other lady pedaling downtown. We were a small, tough group who battled the much less civil streets.
On March 16, Presidio-based bike shop and team, Roaring Mouse Cycling, will be hosting an advanced class on fixing flat tires. They’ll teach tips from the pros on how to change it faster and more efficiently so you’re off and pedaling in just a few minutes.
But most of us aren't ready for pro tips yet. We need basics.
Remember how great it was to get valentines in elementary school? You’d walk through the classroom and put a valentine on everyone’s desk and come home with a bag full of cards. The cards were always so awesome, with witty phrases—like a Star Wars one that says “Yoda one for me” or a Batman one that reads “I’m batty for you.” Ah, memories.
Forget online dating, try looking for love the old fashioned way: In a panel of three people vying for a date with the same sweetie. Pioneered in the 70s with The Dating Game and continuing on in reality TV, it’s a tried and true way of finding love—or at least drama.
This month, the American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition are teaming up for two special “Bike to the Theater” nights. On January 17 and January 24, pedal-powered theatergoers will be treated to discount tickets (starting at just $10) to the show, and red carpet treatment in the form of bike valet at the event.
