NOPA VELO Rides Pride Parade

Individual signs for each bike in the LGBTQ Pride Ride

Meet up at Oasis Cafe

NOPA VELO, the North Panhandle's biking group, took to Market Street today for the sun-drenched "Forty and Fabulous" LGBTQ Pride Parade marking the 40th year for the city's biggest parade. They joined the 70 plus member contingent of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (SFBC) and spun their wheels right behind the kick-off group, Dykes on Bikes.

NOPA VELO and SFBC members first met in a NOPA garage on Saturday morning for a bike decorating party to prep the customized SFBC placards for each bike, along with handlebar streamers for all.

Sunday morning the SFBC floats rolled through NOPA, met NOPA VELO cyclists at the Oasis Cafe on McAllister and Divisadero and altogether headed for Market Street.

Thanks to all who helped with the event, especially SFBC volunteer Scott Madden,volunteer decorators, cookie makers, riders, and to SFBC for great promotion and logistics support and for welcoming NOPA VELO in a great San Francisco event.
