This handy compact guide tells you all you need to know about seeing San Francisco on two wheels. With chapters dedicated to various sights and neighborhoods—Mission, Dogpatch, Soma, Tenderloin, Hayes Valley, Castro, Haight, Wester Addition, Pacific Heights, and Sunset, Golden Gate Park, & Richmond—City Cycling USA: San Francisco dispels the myth that the hills of San Fran are big enough to keep cyclists away.
Each area is mapped out in detail and includes recommendations for cafes, bars, galleries, museums, shops, and parks that are worth a visit. Cyclists can follow a set itinerary or pick and choose as they wish. For cycling enthusiasts, the section on Racing and Training gives some context to San Francisco’s cycling heritage and offers ideas for longer and more scenic routes in the countryside.
