Drinks and lunch always follow the "pothole ride"
First-timers get first chance at tagging the potholes
From the street rogues gallery, this one on Mission Street
Spray paint alerts bicyclists and helps road crews find the defects
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition's Good Roads Campaign kicks off in NOPA Saturday morning for a two-hour spin through the neighborhood, Panhandle Park, and the streets south of the Panhandle. For its special Summer of Smooth ride, volunteers will team up to spot nasty holes, trenches, and sunken utility covers that lurk in the Haight district. Newcomers always get first chance to tag the street defects with the spray paint (DPW knows about pothole rides and supplies the paint). After their noble efforts to make streets smoother and safer, the crew repairs to a local restaurant or pub.
The Good Roads regulars invite NOPA cyclists to join the ride. They're proud of their reputation for being a most welcoming street squad. All supplies provided. Good times pretty much guaranteed.
