First, there's the San Francisco Bike Expo
at the Cow Palace on Saturday. There'll be lots of vendors; we're planning to get a couple of BikeGlow
safety lights and two Down Low Glow
systems, and want to check out the under-seat bags from Krieg Cycling
. I'm also looking forward to the different clothing vendors, and intend to try on as many pairs of riding knickers/capris and as much merino wool as I can.
After the expo, around 7:00 pm (after dark), the Rock the Bike crew will be leading a ride
(no doubt complete with lights and music
) back to the Mission, destination Baobab Village
for the Outside In
street food fest.
Then on Sunday, there's the Oakland Taco Truck Tour Numero Dos (Foothill* Boulevard Edition)
. Meet up at the Lake Merritt BART station at 12:30 pm, then ride up Foothill, stopping at four taco trucks on the way, winding up at Nieves Cinco de Mayo
ice cream by the Fruitvale BART station, with the further option of continuing on to the Trappist
, for those with enough energy...
(And somewhere in there, the monkey and I are hoping to get a run in. Yeah, that's likely. Ahem.)
So c'mon, get up on your bike!* I first typed "Foodhill". Freudian slip, I guess.
