Meet at Welcome Center, 518 Valencia… bring lunch and water!
Tues., Sept. 25
1:30-3:30pm: Chris Carlsson leads a 2-hour “Transit History” tour: Discover lost freeways, ghosts of train routes, and a vivid account of how San Franciscans moved around this peninsula through time. Hear about the violent strikes that shaped public transit, the graft and corruption that conquered the Outside Lands. It’s a social, historical and critical tour through the city’s transportation past and present. Meet at Hayes and Octavia (“Patricia’s Green”), we will leave promptly!
Wed., Sept. 26
12 noon: Susanne Zago (fluent in English and Italian) will lead a ride along theeast shore of the SF Bay, from West Oakland BART to the Rosie-the-Riveter monument in Richmond, California. It’s a fantastically scenic, beautiful bayshore ride, with easy return by BART. Meet at West Oakland BART at 11:45 a.m.
12 noon: NOIZ Ride: meet at the McKinley statue across Baker street from the Dept. of Motor Vehicles on the Panhandle Park. Bring eatables, drinkables, extra layers to wear, and your ears. There will be Three Bands!!! – we will ride around town exploring and stopping very often for some tunes and merriment. Ride will last several hours and will not be strenuous with probably no hills. We will probably intersect with the book opening.
