You might try the regional forum for the area.

Be sure and go ride some of those 37% hills or whatever they are.

Have a looksee on craigslist (founded in SF, btw) for your apartment search. Lots of listings.

Good luck, the SF Bay Area rocks for cycling.

There used to be agencies that would help you with finding an apartment share. Hopefully there still are.

I lived in the Bay Area for a number of years and had a GF I biked with who lived in SF. Fantastic place for biking, but not knowing where you're moving from in may be no better than what your used to. I hope Mikes Bikes pays well as SF is a very expensive place to live.... Either way, I'm envious.

You might be better off looking for a sublet for only 4 months. Be aware that the rental market in SF is very competitive. I hope you have good credit.

I hope you have an extra arm and leg because that is what it is going to cost to rent a place.

A lot of good riding down the coast. Ride the whole coast down to SLO if you can. If you don't have time Montara is very pretty can can easily be done in a weekend. There is a hostel there. You can stay for about $25. No breakfast but the Halfmoon Bay airport is just down the road and their breakfast is fantastic.

If you give me an idea what you can/willing to spend, I'm happy to pass it on to friends who live there. They're mostly in the restaurant biz so there's always people moving out of rooms and cheap apartments. If you don't want to say on the board, send me a PM and I'll pass it on. I'm assuming you're not a crazy person. :-D

I happened to be in SF a couple of months ago and stopped in Mikes Bikes at 1233 Howard. Walking from my hotel I saw many homeless. With what a bicycle mechanic gets paid and the cost of living in SF, that might your best option, though I imagine the competition for prime doorways and empty appliance cartons is fierce...

Thanks to Phillip Burton for demilitarizing the southern end of Marin County
and creating the Open Space of the GGNRA.

Bring plenty of money .. San Fransisco Was a pricey place to live,
before the Tech Boom pushed it higher ..
