Meets at Holloway & Font Blvd (Near SFSU)
In celebration of October’s Filipino History Month, explore the Filipino historical landmarks of San Francisco.

Share in this 25 mile cycling experience and pedal your way through history. It’s an aggressive ride, but well worth it! SF Bicycle Coalition recreational rides are free for SFBC members (a $5 donation from non-members is appreciated); rain cancels rides.

Boom boxes. Beats. Bikes. Boom box baby!
Special thanks to Volker +his Surly sound machine, for providing the finest beats at the back of the bus throughout this week’s butterlap with a playlist orchestrated by mi calitexican, LMG and Nio. Some nice beats rolling all over the city and a remarkable little ride down Oak st. – which I never get brave enough ride on. Muy special.
Here is a photo and a little video I made from shots taken last month, when V had just mounted some additional hacks to this music haiku. Maybe more videos in the future?! Ding ding.
