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!
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:
Thinking of taking a long bike trip? Wouldn’t it be great if someone planned the entire thing for you—from choose the best route, to booking your hotels to finding you the best bike for the trip? That’s the premise of a new pop up store in the Mission.
What if I told you there was a hand-built locally made bicycle show in San Francisco this weekend? Pretty cool. Now what if I mentioned that it also features local artisan pizza? And a coffee truck, photography exhibit and live music? Oh, and that it’s only $10, lasts all day, and that the small entrance fee also includes the pizza! Yup, see you there!
