OMG, First 100 Cyclists Get in Free at California Academy of Sciences on August 22!

Here you go – as a part of Sunday Streets Golden Gate Park / Great Highway* on August 22, 2010, you’ll be able to ride on over to our California Academy of Sciences, drop your bike off at the free San Francisco Bicycle Coalition valet parking service, and then score a free ticket to enter the Academy.

The catch is that you’ll need to be among the first 100 to arrive, so that means you might need to get there before the 11:00 AM opening time. Other than that, this is the sweetest Sunday Streets deal ever. Be sure to thank our corporate overlords at CLIF BAR.(And bonus, the first 200 cyclists to arrive get a Clif Bar.)

  1. [...] The theme for this year is “Penguin to Penguin”, with Sunday Streets area beginning at the Academy of Sciences. The Academy even has a special offer for Sunday Street bikers. The first 100 people to valet their bikes with the SF Bicycle Coalition at the Academy on Sunday will get a free ticket to the Academy for that day (thanks to Clif Bar). Park your bike, check out the Academy, then hop back on and join the fun along the Great Highway. SFCitizen’s got all the details. [...]
