With only one-third of Muni busses running this week, San Franciscans are having to find other solutions to get to work and around town. There’s no simpler, more affordable or fun way to get around than by bike. This week’s Muni reductions in service gives an added incentive to get on your bike and ride! Here are the tops five things you need to know to “get rolling”:
