Good Weekend: Sunday, December 2

A great bike ride – Labor History Tour: 12 to 4 p.m., meet at CounterPULSE, 1310 Mission Street at 9th Street. Explore the colorful history of the labor movement here in San Francisco with CounterPULSE and Shaping San Francisco director Chris Carlsson on this four-hour bicycle tour. You will visit Pier 38 where the 1877 riots almost burned the Pacific Mail docks (and led to the Workingmen’s Party) and the foot of Market Street where many labor marches began. Get off at the Civic Center BART/Muni Station — remember you can bring your bike on BART —and meet up with new friends at Mission and 9th streets. Do not forget your high-energy snack and some H2O. To reserve your spot, call (415) 626-2060. $15-50 sliding scale. — San Francisco Bicycle Coalition; www.sfbike.org
