Celebrate both the literary and the adventurous spirit of San Francisco at the 2018 Bikes to Books tour on Saturday, October 13, 2018.

The 7.1-mile tour is a diverting and unique way to celebrate both the literary and the adventurous spirit of San Francisco.

Learn about the authors and neighborhoods that made San Francisco a known literary hub, from South Park to North Beach, Jack London to Jack Kerouac, all from the comfort of your own bicycle seat. Event is free. Maps and the expanded poster version will be available for purchase. 

Bring bikes with gears, snacks, and enthusiasm. (This is an urban ride of moderate difficulty, recommended for riders 16 years of age and older.)

About Bikes to Books
Combining San Francisco history, art, literature, cycling, and urban exploration, “Bikes to Books” began as an bike ride homage to the 1988 street-naming project spearheaded by City Lights founder and former San Francisco Poet Laureate, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, in which twelve San Francisco streets were renamed for famous artists and authors who had once made San Francisco their home.

First published in 2013 in The San Francisco Bay Guardian, and later in partnership with City Lights Books, the physical map can be found in many of San Francisco’s finest book emporiums, and is appropriate for use as a navigational tool, a history lesson, and a unique work of art in its own right.
