Buena Vista Park | Baker St. and Haight St, San Francisco, CA



Serious Cycling Club

‘Tis the season…for getting spooky and visiting cemeteries by bike. Part 2 of this three-part series is a mixed-terrain ramble through the Presidio to check out San Francisco’s only remaining cemeteries, followed by a special movie screening.

Route: To be discussed

  • Details: 15-20 miles + 1,000-1,500 feet of climbing (if you don’t want to stay for the movie, expect 2-3 hours of riding)
  • Lunch: Post-ride, grab something on Balboa to nom during the movie
  • Leader: Anne

Ever wonder why there are so few cemeteries in San Francisco? In 1912, the city banned burials due to public health concerns, even going so far as to exhume and relocate existing remains to what is now Colma (which you will visit in Part 3 of this series, City of Souls). Now, only the National Cemetery and the Pet Cemetery remain.

Film Screening: Colma: The Musical

  • To tease the third and final ride in the Cemetery Tour Series, theyll be screening the charming small-budget film Colma: The Musical. They wish a big thanks to Mykill and Sarah for hosting at their place in the Richmond. Drop your bike in the garage, grab your lunch to go from someplace on Balboa, then come on back to eat and enjoy the show.

Bring:

  • a bike that can handle some beginner-to-intermediate offroad trails
  • shoes that are okay for walking sandy or other tricky patches
  • layers, ’cause it’s San Francisco
  • a flat kit
  • a water bottle

Cemetery Tour Code of Conduct: Be respectful. Within cemetery grounds, keep a chill pace on roads and dismount on walking paths. Keep your beers in your bags. Make a good impression on other visitors at these serious sites.
