Bikes to Books Spring 2019 Ride
Saturday, April 27, 12:45-4:00 p.m., north side of Jack London in South Park
Celebrate spring with the Bikes to Books ride!
Combining San Francisco history, art, literature, cycling, and urban exploration, Bikes to Books began as an homage to the 1988 street-naming project spearheaded by City Lights founder and former San Francisco Poet Laureate, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, in which 12 San Francisco streets were renamed for famous artists and authors who had once made San Francisco their home.
The resulting 7.1-mile tour is a diverting and unique way to celebrate both the literary and the adventurous spirit of San Francisco. Learn about the authors and neighborhoods that made San Francisco a known literary hub, from South Park to North Beach, Jack London to Jack Kerouac, all from the comfort of your own bicycle seat! Event is free. Maps and our expanded poster version will be available for purchase.
Meet us on the north side of Jack London in South Park at 12:45. Bring bikes with gears, snacks, and enthusiasm. (This is an urban ride of moderate difficulty, recommended for riders 16 years of age and older.)
