Joost and Michiel are cycling 30,000 kilometers, on bamboo bicycles, over 18 months from Alaska to Argentina to raise awareness for global water issues. All you have to do is 7 miles from the Ferry Building to Golden Gate Park. Easy!
Come join these great fellas on the San Francisco portion of their journey and help bring attention to their cause, one that impacts every person on this planet. We’ll be rolling out from the Ferry Building at 10:30 am (sharp!) on Saturday October 9, and celebrating with a BBQ in Golden Gate Park at the George Washington Grove picnic area starting at 1:30 (that's East of 25th Ave between Martin Luther King Jr and Lincoln Way).
Joost and Michiel will regale us with tales from the road, live music will tickle our eardrums, free food (for riders!) will delight the senses, and B that we will have BYO’d will quench all our desires. No good party would be complete without a costume, so sport something with a water theme -- fish helmets, bathing suits, shark fins -- the world is your oyster! Hey, that could be another one…we want to give the media something to talk about, so charge it!
