The Tour du Fromage blends San Francisco’s cycling community and our cheese community – two passionate and surprisingly connected groups. All cheese and bike lovers are welcome to join the ride. This year’s tour, presented by Velo Fromage, is benefitting the California Artisan Cheese Guild, in collaboration with the Third Annual SF Cheese Fest.
On Tuesday, you’ll speak to the class for 4 to 5 minutes (no longer), giving us your assessment of someone’s credibility. You pick the someone — but there has to be some connection to the wide world of bicycles.
Be sure to review the assigned readings, videos, and the credibility assessment handout from last Tuesday’s class.
IMPORTANT: Using your phone or computer, make 2-3 recordings or yourself rehearsing your talk. If you want to get an A grade on this module, you should record 3. Post the recordings to YouTube (you can control the privacy settings) and submit the link to Canvas. Normally you would submit on the blog but that’s not working for some reason.
Every Labor Day (the first Monday in September), San Francisco hosts a bike race called the “Giro di San Francisco.” Giro is the Italian word for “tour” — in years past, the race went through North Beach, an historically Italian neighborhood.
Once upon a time, the race was known as the San Francisco Gran Prix, and some of the world’s greatest pros came to SF to suffer on the steep hills of Fillmore Street.
The Giro is now a relatively flat “criterium” race (meaning a lot of short, fast laps, which is great for spectators).
