I always prefer exploring on bike and foot because you really feel the transitions from one neighborhood to the next. Before doing anything, stop into Avenue Cyclery, just across from the Golden Gate Park. The checkered floor adds vintage character, and the staff are knowledgable both about bicycles and the city. Their Trek rental bikes were super smooth, the gears helping you climb hills way easier than my single speed back in San Diego would have allowed! Let Brian, the manager, know I sent you, and he’ll hook you up! ($30/day rentals)
Bike Shop Brings a Boost to Our Advocacy This Summer
Avenue Cyclery came in 1st place in week 3 of the Bike Shop Challenge! Thanks for keeping our advocacy pedaling strong! The Challenge ends next Monday. Join or renew at a bike shop in your neighborhood to support your local shop's charge across the finish line.
Each July, local bike shops join in our annual Bike Shop Challenge to see who can bring the biggest boost to our advocacy by recruiting new and renewing members to the SF Bicycle Coalition. The prize? An opportunity to be the official wrenchers at New Belgium’s Tour de Fat in Golden Gate Park, just this past weekend!
