Yes, we are riding down Market Street again! San Francisco Pride has announced that the in-person LGBTQ+ Pride Parade activities that we all know and love will resume this year. And that means that the San Francisco Dykes on Bikes Women's Motorcycle Contingent will again kick off the Pride Parade on Sunday June 26, a tradition going back 45 years.
I know everyone is anxious to know the details. Look for registration to ride as part of the San Francisco Dykes on Bikes to go live on our website at the beginning of April.
Looking for other ways to be involved? We rely heavily on volunteers to help us successfully welcome, register, line-up, and oversee a safe ride down Market Street. Our volunteers are riders and non-riders alike. Did you know that you can volunteer AND ride in the Parade? All of our volunteer activities wrap up at 10AM, in plenty of time to return to your motorcycle before we start the parade. Interested in learning more? Send us an email using the button below and we can send you details.
Also - please take a moment to consider donating to the San Francisco Dykes on Bikes WMC. Fundraising and donations are used by SFDOB to support operating expenses, help us execute on the important work protecting the use of the trademarked name Dykes on Bikes® for non-profit work in the LGBTQ+ community in the U.S. and abroad. Lastly, donations will help support our archives project. Under the direction and guidance of Emeritus Patchholder Dr. Sheila Malone, the archives will preserve and make accessible the Dykes on Bikes® history for all those from the past, present, and future.
Stay tuned as we continue to update our website with information on registration, FAQs on the Parade, and volunteering opportunities.
