    Where can I find info about family friendly routes in San Francisco?

    Hi all, family and I are spending a week in SF and we are taking our bikes and the kid's Burley. We're staying near Ghirardelli Square and would like to start our ride from there. However, I'm not opposed to driving to a better, flatter (ha!) starting point. Where can I find family friendly routes in SF? Thanks!

    Stay off the Golden Gate Bridge. That could be pretty dangerous with a trailer.

    Golden Gate Park is pretty tame, especially on weekends.

    I don't live in SF, so I don't have any recommendations for you. Do check with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, as they tend to be a great group of folks and very helpful.
    If you ride, ride with RoadID.

    If family friendly means riding with kids, remember Golden Gate Park closes to vehicle traffic every Sunday. You can ride from the Flower Palace down to the waterfalls have fun!

    Also you can ride along the Embarcadero, but Golden Gate Park is a lot more fun.
    To me the life is a glass half full, I love optimism, life's better that way.
