October 17 BIPOC History Tour with BikeSD

BIPOC History Ride - October 17th at 9 am

Introduction

Welcome to the BikeSD hosted, San Diego BIPOC History Ride. You will ride with members of BikeSD through San Diego, visiting historic spaces and significant sites--some of which may be familiar, and some of which you may have passed a hundred times without knowing they were there. These guides will help you navigate the city, following the route established for the BIPOC History Ride which was built in collaboration with many individuals and organizations. We aren't tour guides, just local cyclists who have volunteered to guide this group ride. The group will rely on the online tour for information and stories about the sites. Meet-up at 9 am, 9:15 am roll out and approximate completion of tour around 1 pm. The ride will stop for lunch at a local spot upon completion. We are limiting the spots to 10 people due to COVID-19. Masks are required at all times. Bring a mobile smart phone or device that can access data to follow along the online route and information.
