Join us for a festive and informative Interfaith Bike Ride. We will explore the history of how some of SF's congregations have contributed to the diversity and culture of San Francisco. We will start our ride at 1 pm this Sunday, May 22nd at Duboce Park, then bike to the first congregation in San Francisco, Mission Dolores, and continue south to the famous St. Peter's Church, then wrap around to congregations in the Castro, Hayes Valley, and conclude with a special bicycle blessing at St. Francis Lutheran Church about 2:40 pm. This is a beginner to midly intermediate ride; most of it will be flat. All ages are welcome. Register  here.
