Pancake Breakfast at City Hall – Frank Ogawa Plaza 7am – 9:30am

It’s tough to start riding on an empty stomach, but knowing that you’ll be biking toward a stack of flapjacks should be enough motivation to get you going in the morning. At City Hall, in Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, hundreds of bicyclists will enjoy:

  • A pancake breakfast
  • Free Starbucks coffee
  • Free valet bike parking by Bike East Bay until 6pm
  • Free bike safety checks by LuckyDuck
  • A raffle with great prizes from local bike shops and businesses
  • A transportation fair to highlight the bike-friendly programs of local agencies and businesses.
