Despite early fog hugging the coast, the sun finally came out to play around 12:30 pm yesterday and blessed the thousands of cyclists, skaters, bladers and walkers who enjoyed the approximately six miles of the car-free Sunday Streets event in Golden Gate Park and along the Great Highway adjacent to Ocean Beach. 

"I have to say I'm astounded and amazed that that many people showed up," said Livable City Sunday Streets organizer Susan King. "One of the things that really pointed to is that people really get what Sunday Streets is. People knew and were there early. We had people lining up for bike rental at 9 am."
