Pedal Power Your Way to Maker Faire Bay Area

Maker Faire Bay Area attendees traveling from San Francisco on Saturday, May 19th, should consider joining the 4th Annual Maker Faire Social Ride, a leisurely 20-mile bicycle caravan beginning at Mission Dolores Park in San Francisco’s Mission District. Whether you’re an alternative transportation enthusiast or social excursionist, this approximately 3-hour trip will get you to the San Mateo Fairgrounds after the gates have opened but with plenty of time to enjoy a full day of festivities. Additionally, bike riders get free valet parking (locks encouraged) plus a $5 discount on your Maker Faire ticket! For bicyclists who can’t join the Social Ride but still want to pedal from the North Bay, please consider the San Mateo County North-South Bicycle Route. More information and directions for rail, bus, and bike routes found here.

After parking your bicycle at bike valet you can buy Adult Maker Faire tickets for $20 (a $5 discount) and Student/Youth tickets for $10 at bike valet – cash only.

    So if we don’t bike from as far as S.F. but we just go to the bike valet with our bikes, we can save on our tickets? I’m thinking of biking from home, about 1 mile away :)

      A bike is still a bike even if you walked it 1 mile! Keep in mind: locks are recommended, coupon will be given at valet, tickets (for bike valet discount) are cash only. Thanks for your question and have a great time!
