Have a day, renting a bicycle. Advice? (San Francisco, CA)
I'm flying in Tuesday morning (9/10) for a meeting on Wednesday morning. I'm staying at the Cornel De France near Powell and Bush.
Tuesday will have enough flexibility that I plan to rent a bike at the Ferry Building around 10am, and ride up to and over the Golden Gate Bridge, then back and around Golden Gate Park, grab lunch somewhere, etc. Then hit a few local bike shops on the way back.
I'm an experienced cyclist, including commuting in traffic several times a week in Las Vegas. I can do 40 -50 miles without too much effort on a weekend ride and hills don't bother me. I'll have GPS directions from place to place.
Any major problems with my plan? Any suggestions, ideas, resources? HOW SHOULD I DRESS? I'm thinking shorts and a packable jacket or a sweatshirt.
The bike shops I'm considering are Huckelberry, Valencia, Box Dog, and Pedal Revolution. Not sure if I can make it to all of them.
