Learn to Ride At The Presidio

OK, now we know the formula for a PERFECT Learn to Ride Event...

Picturesque setting overlooking an iconic bay + Stellar weather + Partnering with an incredible bike advocacy organization! It's just that easy.

Yesterday we dropped in on the Ybike (YMCA's San Fran bicycle program) Learn to Ride event on the Main Post Lawn in the Presidio district of San Francisco.

If you know of the Presidio you know what a special place it is. If you haven't been to the Presidio you absolutely need to. This old military installation turned National Park is one of the most beautiful settings in San Francisco and a wonderful place to spend an afternoon with the family.

While reaching out to bike advocacy orgs in advance of the Northern California leg of our Raise Riders Tour, we were e-introduced to Matt Dove, Director of Bicycle Programs at Ybike. A few emails and phone calls later and we decided to help support Matt's amazing staff, and tireless volunteers at their monthly Learn To Ride Event.

Every first Sunday or every month, the Ybike team helps hundreds of kids learn to ride. Yes, 100-200 kids EVERY first Sunday! Incredible.

This month (November 2018), over 100 families came by to experience the Ybike learn to ride course PLUS the infamous (ok, in our own minds) Buddy Pegs Bicycle Playground!

Over the course of the afternoon we learned a few more tricks of the trade from the Ybike instructors and had a great time sharing Little Moments and Big Memories.

BONUS: We added two more names to the Pedaler Hall of Fame including this boy who was FIRED UP to feel the freedom of two wheels! Dad was more than a little stoked himself :)
