Upcoming Bikes to Books Events

We like to meet up in real life, on occasion!

Bikes to Books Eight-Year Anniversary Ride

It’s a party and you’re all invited! Our signature 7.1 mile bicycle tour of literary San Francisco combines San Francisco history, art, literature, cycling, and urban exploration—a diverting and unique way to celebrate the literary and adventurous spirit of San Francisco.

  • Saturday, October 2, 12:45-4:00 p.m.
  • North side of Jack London Alley, in South Park, SF
  • Tour ends in North Beach outside City Lights Books.

In 2013 we created Bikes to Books as an homage to the 1988 street-naming project spearheaded by City Lights Books founder and former San Francisco Poet Laureate, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, in which 12 San Francisco streets were renamed for famous artists and authors who’d once made San Francisco their home. Celebrate eight years of Bike to Books, 33 years of street names, and 150+ years of San Francisco literary history from South Park to North Beach, Jack London to Jack Kerouac.

We’ll be monitoring all public health advisories and mandates regarding outdoor gatherings, as well as air quality. Do watch for updates regarding postponements, cancellations, and any other last minute information.

Masks and appropriate distancing required, proof of vaccination not required but highly encouraged.
