San Francisco bike riders are lucky. We’ve got world-class road biking in Marin, killer single track to the North and South, and gorgeous bike touring along the coast. Not to mention the miles of bike lanes in our city.
If you had any energy left after Bay to Breakers madness, then a bit after five o'clock yesterday you were treated to a rare annular solar eclipse with about 84% of the sun covered by the moon.
It's Bay to Breakers this Sunday. Heck, you might already be pre-gaming for the "race." For those of you actually running it, we wish you good luck. For the others donning costumes and taking sips from an undisclosed bottle hidden somewhere on your body, we've got an instagram contest for you.
The prestigious Amgen Tour of California passed through our great city on Monday morning, leaving the Marina waterfront at 11 am. The eight-day cycling road race features elite professional teams and athletes from around the world. Fans lined the streets of the City as the peloton sped west, and then sharply turned south following the Great Highway out of town. Enjoy photos from the starting line.

Here are a few stats to get you excited about the big bike day. Happy pedaling!
