Background

 

The St. Patrick's Day Massacre is an annual charity bike ride that began in 2013. We've raised more than $110,000 for various San Francisco-based charities including the K-5 Art in Action program at Saints Peter and Paul school, and Burrito Project SF, an organization that delivers food to San Francisco's hungry.  

 

This year we're supporting 3 fundraisers:

 

2021 Schedule - Competitive and Family Ride

Competitive Ride - 8AM, Saturday, March 13th

 

For riders who want to do multiple repeats. The event is a socially-distanced ride with no support.  Please wear a mask if you are close to others. The Massacre starts from the steps of Saints Peter and Paul church at Washington Square Park at 8AM sharp. You can make your own route to Hawk Hill. The climbing starts with a front-side Hawk and then multiple repeats of the backside. The ride ends at precisely 11AM (see below for the route, records and rules). The individuals with the most climbs (male and female) get their name on the trophy. Your climbs will be verified on Strava. To participate enter your details here. Finally, Zach Morvant is attempting to break the record of 12 climbs. You can support him at Zach Morvant's SF-Marin Food Bank.

Family Ride - 9AM, Sunday, March 14th

The ride leaves North Beach and proceeds to Hawk Hill in the Marin Headlands. After riding the frontside of Hawk Hill (Conzelman Rd.) riders do multiple hill repeats of the backside (McCullough Rd.). Each ascent is approx. 600 feet in elevation and 1.5 miles in distance.
