If storing your bike come winter breaks your heart, then you should head to San Francisco. The compact city has an extensive bicycle route system with over 200 miles of trails and path, most of which avoid San Francisco’s ass-kicking hills. From the swanky Mission District where craft beer costs $8 a trough, to the Golden Gate Bridge to Alamo Square, getting around is simple: ride your bike. Plus, mild temperatures provide year-round biking weather for winter haters.
Bikeable Miles: 200+ miles of designated bike routes
Recommended Route: Bike through Golden Gate Park, 3.5-miles of urban space larger than Central Park in New York City. From here, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge. Head there on a Sunday when the park is off-limits to vehicles.
