For this week's Scenes of the City we took a bicycle ride on the Sunday Streets route through Golden Gate Park and turned south to follow the Great Highway to Sloat Ave where the event terminated.

For those who couldn't make it to Stern Grove yesterday, here's a photo recap of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings' stellar performance. 80 degree temps + free world class music = a great day.

We rose early on Sunday and made our way down to Marina to capture the harrowing Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. Swim, bike, run and do it as quick as possible. This year's winner, Andy Potts finished the 1.5 mile swim, 18-mile bike and 8-mile run in just under two hours. Badass.
