Sunday Streets returned to the Bayview and the Central Waterfront for a third straight year yesterday, welcomed by a resplendent, sunny day and thousands of participants on bike, foot and skate.

While the route is becoming a familiar jaunt [2] for Sunday Streets veterans, many of the people out yesterday appeared to be first-timers -- to Sunday Streets, and maybe even to bicycling. Unlike last Sunday's route along the Great Highway, which was forced to end early because of a downpour, yesterday welcomed everyone with warm weather and enough sun to make the shade a sought-after commodity (performances at the Bayview Opera House are a good chance to sit under a tree for a while and cool off.)

But don't fret if you missed out yesterday: Sunday Streets will return to Third Street [3] on May 23 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., along with the Bayview Festival, which will stretch from 1 p.m.-5 p.m.
