Sunday in SF: Biking to Ballet

What a great idea for a Sunday!  I got in a quick 20 mile ride through the Presidio and around Lake Merced, then met my pal Tracy at the Stern Grove Festival to see the San Francisco Ballet perform.  Stern Grove provides complimentary Bike Valet!  How great is that? Now, if only the website had cautioned me about the long downhill walk to the theater!  I started the descent in my cleats and with my sore quads…but soon decided a ride on the shuttle was much better.

Maceo Parker is playing next Sunday.  And, They Might Be Giants play on the 22nd.  All you SF folks – you should ride your bike there, just remember to pack a pair of flip flops for the hill!

In honor of Valentine’s Day, and my recent move from Boston to San Francisco, below is my quick list of favorites as a triathlete new to the area:

  • Running the trails in the Presidio
  • Running to Ocean Beach (this weekend, I made it there 3 times – by foot, by Muni and by bicycle)
  • Having Golden Gate Park in my backyard
  • Swimming at the Presidio or Embarcadero Y
  • Swimming at Marin College – Indian Valley campus
  • Cycling through Golden Gate Park and along the Great Highway
  • The Golden Gate Triathlon Club

I’ve only been here for 2 weeks, so lots more to explore. Dare I admit, I have not gone across the GG Bridge into Marin since my visit in April. I’m looking forward to Wildflower Training weekend (and the race).

For all you SF triathletes, what do you love most about the area?
