    San Francisco route to Market from GG Park

    What is the preferred route from GG Park to Market Street?

    Although the Panhandle route has less stops, I'm finding that I prefer to cross Kezar Drive and then head down Page Street instead even though there are more stops. The Panhandle ends in front of the DMV and I'm not sure where to go from there. Oak Street is quite intimidating even to go the 2 or 3 blocks to the Scott Street wiggle. By using Page Street, I find I can avoid this situation.

    Now from Page Street, is it better to continue east to Market or take the right on Scott Street wiggle?

    From the wiggle route, I get to Duboce and go between the Safeway and N-Judah tunnel, but what's the appropriate way to get on to Market? Use the two crosswalks? I don't think I can make a left at the intersection of Duboce and Market otherwise right?

    From the panhandle, you can take Baker up to Page.
    I just take Page all the way to Market, then turn left on Market at the stop light.
    The wiggle is mostly for westbound people who want to avoid the hills.

    Ride to the end of the panhandle turn right. Go to the first light turn left, go down three blocks turn right, go one block turn left follow that street (Page) all the way to Market St. I commute on that route everyday very safe. However after 7:30 AM way more traffic.
    To me the life is a glass half full, I love optimism, life's better that way.
    Riding the streets of San Francisco, the roads of West Marin and Northern California...
