"Critical Mass is a mass bicycle ride that takes place on the last Friday of each month in cities around the world. Everyone is invited! No one is in charge! Bring your bike!"

May. 28 | 11:15am pushoff | Meet at Mechanic’s Institute Library, Post at Montgomery
"Ride through the literary history of San Francisco. Tour neighborhoods as varied as North Beach and the Mission while learning facts, tid-bits, and heresy about the City’s writerly past. Be prepared to meet some authors along the way. Expect a two-hour, fairly easy-going ride (minimal hills!). Eat beforehand, but time permitting (and desired) we will stop in a coffeehouse for refueling.
SF Bicycle Coalition recreational rides are free for SFBC members (a $5 donation from non-members is appreciated);
rain cancels rides."
