Good Weekend: Sunday, December 23

Presidio to Cliff House Bike Ride: This holiday weekend, take a ride from Presidio, south along Lincoln Street, following the cliff-top views above our city’s prettiest beach, Baker Beach. After rolling past the million-dollar homes of Seacliff and Lincoln Park, you’ll bike around Point Lobos and reach the Cliff House, where you can enjoy its historic edge-of-the-world views. Here, you can cut your trip short or continue down the Great Highway along Ocean Beach, around the south end of Lake Merced and then back. If you want to return by bus, you and your bike can pick up Muni’s 5-Fulton just south of the Cliff House — off the Great Highway and Cabrillo Street — and take the easy way back to Golden Gate Park or downtown San Francisco.
