Cycling in San Francisco, suggestion for a 40 miles loop???
« on: February 23, 2011, 08:02:30 am »
Hello to all San Francisco cyclists!!!

Vélo Québec Voyages is organising a cross America tour in 2012 and this tour will start in San Francisco.  We will spend our first day in your beautiful city and would like to offer a loop in the city.

I'm looking for a loop ride of about 40 miles that will take us to the places a tourist would like to discover, to nice hidden spots, nice areas, streets, etc...  As cyclists, we will not take the time to enter museum, but would rather discover the sights/sceneries the city as to offer.  If possible I would like to loop to pass on the Golden Gate to Sausalito and take the ferry back.  I would like to cycle on some of the famous streets of SF, the one that offer good view points.  I would like to discover different part of the city, some known to tourist but also, some known only to the locals.

I would like to loop to take bike paths when available or bike friendly streets also when available.  But, like in any city, it is ok to take regular low traffic streets as well.
Please...send me your favourite itinerary!!!

Can’t wait to see what you have to say!

Merci beaucoup et au plaisir!

Here is a 49 km route based on the scenic 49 mile drive through SF: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?doc_id=7598
