Market Street. When riding on Market Street you have to watch for: train tracks, trains, buses, cars, pedestrians, and other cyclists, all going all directions at once.

Heading up Geary, away from downtown.

First hill on the way home. It's a pretty small hill.

More uphill, still not bad.

So I made it to the top, now I go back down

At the bottom of the hill, I turn right onto Divisadero. Here's Divisadero.

Then I turn left onto California, and have one more hill to go up. This is the biggest hill on my ride home.

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
