When - 2010-09-25
Where - Lindley Meadows in Golden Gate Park
Why - Why not? Try something new!

San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (SFBC) & Bay Area Ridge Trail Council (BATRTC)
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition works to transform San Francisco's streets and neighborhoods into more livable and safe places by promoting the bicycle for everyday transportation through day-to-day advocacy, education, and working partnerships with government and community agencies.  Our active 11,000 members represent San Franciscans of all ages, from all neighborhoods, who are working towards more safe, efficient, and green ways to move around our city.  Because of our efforts, the number of residents biking for transportation has doubled in the past 10 years.
Current San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Members (to join, go are encouraged to volunteer at Tour de Fat by emailing Tessa Buckley, Membership & Volunteer Coordinator,

The Bay Area Ridge Trail Council unites volunteers and agencies to plan, acquire, build, maintain, and promote a 550-mile ridgeline cycling, hikinig and equestrian trail around the Bay. When complete, the Bay Area Ridge Trail will connect over 75 parks and open spaces and serve the recreation needs of diverse communities, providing close-to-home recreation for all residents of the Bay Area.  The Council works in close partnership with local governments, public agencies, nonprofit land trusts, and community members in the nine Bay Area counties to complete the Ridge Trail. Our collaborative work with these organizations helps preserve key upland natural environments and often accelerates the opening of trails on these lands for public enjoyment.
