Scenes of the City: America's Cup Fleet Race Finals

America's Cup 2012 came to a close Sunday afternoon with a fleet race round the Bay. After a dramatic finish, Oracles Jimmy Spithill came away with the win.

Ride Your Bike This Weekend—Seriously!

This weekend is epically busy in San Francisco. With Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Fleet Week, America’s Cup races, Giants Playoff games and a 49ers home game, and a variety of other local festivities, our city’s streets and transit are going to be bursting at the seams.  

So what’s the best way to avoid all of that mess? Get on a bike!

Scenes of the City: The America's Cup Begins

America's Cup kicked off in a thick pea soup of fog over the Bay. Spectators came out in droves and there was no shortage of action on the water. Back on land, the America's Cup Village showcased wine tasting, games for kids, live info sessions, and other concessions.

Bikes and Cars - Will We Ever Get Along?

Critical Mass SF

A friend of mine spends 99% of her commuting hours on a bicycle. Last week, it was a rare night that she needed her car in the city. She approached the Fell St. left turn on Scott St. a.k.a. the Wiggle. Seeing a bike lane on the left and another on the right, she inched left, as she was planning to turn left.

Scenes of the City: The Embarcadero

Indian Summer is finally upon us! Get outside and enjoy the hot temperatures. The Embarcadero is one ideal place to people-watch, soak up the sun, and soak up the beautiful views of the Bay. 

Hot 30: Buster Posey, The Returning Champion

Buster Posey

It’s Indian summer in San Francisco, and temperatures are on the rise. As are the local luminaries in our annual Hot 20, er . . . Hot 30. That’s right. We were so impressed by the crop of talent and brains moving the needle this year—in fields as diverse as technology, music, education, sports, and arts—that we added 10 bright stars to our list.

The Ultimate Sunday Bike Ride: San Bruno Mountain

San Bruno Map

Most Bay Area locals have a tendency to take San Bruno Mountain for granted, a grassy, often fog shrouded lump looming alongside the Bayshore freeway. Situated just south of the San Francisco - San Mateo county line, it’s considered to be the northernmost peak of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The majority of the mountain lies within the 2,300 plus acres of San Bruno Mountain State Park, a unique open-space island in the midst of the north peninsula's dense urbanization.

Legal Mountain Biking You Can Get To Without a Car

Mountain Biking SF

With Santa Cruz to the South, Marin to the North and Tahoe to the East, there’s some decent mountain biking in the Bay Area. But you don’t have to get in a car or spend a full weekend away to get some good trail riding in. There are plenty of fun trails here in the city—or just a bike or BART ride away. Here are my top picks for car-free local and legal mountain biking right:

Scenes of the City: Golden Gate Park

The days may be shorter but the city is warmer and this weekend is promising temps in the upper 70's (finally!).

A San Francisco summer day is best spent in our crown jewel of Golden Gate Park where you can walk, bike, skate, picnic, play, and laze the day away. There are endless secret spots to stumble upon and you could spend years exploring and never see it all. 

Need inspiration? Here's how some locals and visitors spent last weekend in the park.
