McAllister Street is the San Francisco Cyclist’s Friend – Better Than the Wiggle?

These days, it’s all Wiggle this and Wiggle that- but is that really the best way to get to the Golden Gate Park Pandhandle bike path from downtown? Consider McAllister Street to Divisidero as an option.

Yes it has a couple hilly blocks in the Western Addition, but it’s a shorter, faster route – and one that uses less energy, or burns fewer calories anyway per the Gmaps Pedometer. And best of all, you avoid that long wait at the public policy disaster known as Octavia Boulevard.

When oh when will McAllister have it’s own Yelp entry as a relatively flat bike route?

I propose calling this route the Snickerdoodle, or “The Snick” for short.

Wiggle, you’ve met your match.

    A couple of years ago, I worked on Divisadero at Sutter, and McAllister was my route each day. Saved my butt.

    McAllister and Divisidero is the pass through the mountains of the Western Addition.
