Cycling in San Francisco

San Francisco is known as a hub of entertainment and excitement, a cultural center and a commercial and financial heart of Northern California. Sound like a busy city right? Actually, San Francisco has the second highest population density in the USA, with only New York being busier.

Ok, now you might be a little worry about how you can enjoy safe cycling in this bustling city. But do you know that in recent years, cycling in San Francisco has become popular and popular? The city has worked so hard to improve cycling infrastructure and community support for people riding bikes. Thanks to the great effort and the help of advocacy groups like the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, the city is now one of the country’s most bike-friendly cities.  

San Francisco’s compact urban form and mild climate allow people to ride to work, shopping, or recreational destinations quickly and comfortably. Though San Francisco is famous for steep hills which can make cycling little difficult, many parts of the city are pretty flat and easy to pedal.

The city also has a strong and diverse cycling culture with many social events, rides and bicycle clubs.

Seems like there is no reason to say 'no' to this cycling mecca. Hope on your bike and start to create some memories on the roads of San Francisco.
