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.
