If you just followed me, thanks. Sorry it’s been a while since I have posted. Being “done” with the project means I still trying to figure out how/what to do here…I have a few more posts about mapping, but then maybe I’ll just start posting interesting rides.
In the mean time. Follow me over here at Strava: http://www.strava.com/athletes/287
A few different options looking at the #rideallofsf completed map. The top image includes what we could do out at Hunter’s Point during the open house. The middle I did for @mashsf to go with the RGB theme and the bottom is rainbow by month starting 10/12. (The peach color was everything prior to that).
someguy123 asked: how was riding through the cuttier parts of hunter's point?
Hunters Point wasn’t that bad. It’s out there and very cut off it seems, but not the worst of the public housing in SF. Areas of Sunnydale and the Bayview (included the PH) were a littler rougher.
WOW. This is really cool. A colleague forwarded this to me and it’s great.
That’s all folks - I’m done*!
I finished riding all the streets in San Francisco yesterday afternoon with a run down California. I was joined by 9 others; a good mix of fellow commuters, wife’s colleague and friends I ride with. The traffic wasn’t bad, but I could have done with fewer stop lights. The weather was spectacular and hanging out at Park Chalet was a perfect end.
Sometimes, well most of the time, I’m a little slow to see cool posts. In this case I’m about 3.5 years late. After riding most of the SF streets, I’m proud to say I rode a lot of these and know where the rest are…very cool street history indeed.
Final ride info: Come join the fun:
Meet at Vaillancourt Fountain Sunday April 28, 2013 a little before 2:30.
I offer a couple route options.
1. I’m going to hop on California and at Drum and head West until it ends, then jog over to Clement up past the VA around the bend past Cliff House and finish by parking at Park Chalet and enjoying an afternoon beverage and snack.
2. If California worries you (i checked it out, it’s really wide, so I’m not that concerned about the Cable car tracks) you can head around the Embarcadero and do the butter lap route to Park Chalet
3. Just meet us there. I’m guessing 30min travel time, give or take.
Updated version of my mapping rides loading into the overlay tool. This has filled in just about all the roads.
So with ~1 more ride left I figured I look at the stats for riding all of SF. There are ~960mi of road in San Francisco so I knew the number would be higher than that. How much higher was the question. What gets me is the climbing. I knew we lived in a hilly city, but that hilly? Pretty awesome.
Distance: 1450.8 mi
Climbing: 144792 ft
Suffer: 3121 pts
Ave. Speed: ~13.5 mph
Final rideallofsf.tumblr.com progress report before the final one. Pretty sure you can see which street I’m missing. Purple looks nice too.
