    Visiting SF next week; where to ride?

    Hey ya'll! I'm going to be visiting SF in a few days with a 48/16. I've always wanted to ride through the Ferry Building and am a little tempted.

    Any suggestions on where to ride? Restaurants to grab lunch at?

    The ferry building is PACKED with people. You can barely walk through it.

    If you want a fun hill with a payoff, climb to to parking lot at the Coit Tower. Not the toughest hill in SF, but close to the Embarcadero.

    I suggest riding the Embarcadero, from under the bay bridge to the Golden Gate, then across to the Marin headlands, and down into Sausalito... just once. Its a typical tourist's route, but its not a poor one. I've wanted to the the west-side coastline, too.

    If you're near San Bruno, San Bruno Mtn is climbable fixed from the west side, but the east side is pretty brutal.

    I wonder if youre talking about this place: http://www.yelp.com/biz/java-beach-cafe-san-francisco

    Its more of a coffee place that serves good sandwhiches, though. BBQ chicken is my favorite there too! About six blocks from my house. Great place to chill. Free wifi.

    If you're going a Sunday Streets day (the next one is early August), definitely check it out: http://sundaystreetssf.com/

    Maybe the place you guys are talking about is Beach Chalet: http://www.beachchalet.com/

    Have fun in SF. I must moved from there recently and I miss it like crazy.
