Good weekend: Sunday, April 22 

A great bike ride: Come out and have a great Earth Day ride in the park with the Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program (www.borp.org) as they visit San Francisco. BORP was founded in 1976 by people with disabilities to create access to the outdoors, to fitness, to sports and to recreation for a population who’d been left out. Meet up in front of McLaren Lodge on car-free JFK Drive (near Stanyan) in Golden Gate Park and be ready to roll at 1:30 pm.
