SF, thursday Aug 13, 2015
We are now resting 2 days in SF, after a wonderful 600 miles ride across nothern California. Everything has already been said since 1850 about SF, one of the most attractive place in the world thanks to its mild climate, its charming houses, its unique bay, its open mindedness, its Silicon Valley. From the point of view of a cyclist, it is a very cool city: cars are slow, silent and cautious ( at least compared with Paris and many other cities). The hills are steep but it adds to the fun ( strong legs and good shifter advised).Getting out of town for a ride on backroads is easy ( cross the Golden Gate, pass Sausalito and you are in the countryside). The fog can be a mess but the sun is never far, and February is hardly colder than July. So, what else than San Francisco?
