Weekend Events: Pedalfest Saturday, San Francisco Marathon
Looking for something fun to do this weekend? From the San Francisco Marathon to an event celebrating the bicycle, there's a lot of action you'll want to get in on.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- We've partnered with the team at Hoodline - the hyper local neighborhood website to find weekend activities in and around the Bay Area.

Pedalfest Saturday

It's a celebration of the bicycle this weekend in Oakland. Join Bike East Bay and 20,000 other bicycle enthusiasts for Pedalfest Saturday at Jack London Square from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. This event is free and you'll see all kinds of creative and fun bikes. You can also enjoy a pedal-powered stage and food vendors, drinks from Drake's Brewing, a kid's bike parade, and don't miss the amphibious bike race.

"People with all kinds of wacky bikes are going to race up and down Jack London Square, and then splash down into the Oakland Estuary and do another lap in the water and then come out again. So, that's probably the best part. If you come for anything come for the amphibious bike race," Bike East Bay executive director, Ginger Jui said.
