Sunday Streets: Bayview/Dogpatch
1:04 PM PST on March 2, 2015
From Sunday Streets:
This will be Sunday Streets sixth year visiting the Bayview and Dogpatch neighborhoods. With over three and a half miles of car-free space, this is one of the longest Sunday Streets routes and a great opportunity to explore San Francisco neighborhoods by bike. For the first time, Sunday Streets will take place on the southbound lanes of Third St between Mariposa and Yosemite Ave. Read below for suggested detours. Because this route is so long, we encourage you to bring your bike or skates. If you don’t have wheels, be sure to put on those walking shoes!
