SF Bike Route 60
Great Highway to 3rd Street
General Route Description
Note: Route 60 has different alignments running eastbound and westbound, due to one-way streets.
From the SF Municipal Transportation Agency Bicycle Program's 2005 SF Bicycle Plan: Network Improvement Document —
Cesar Chavez St / Clipper St / Vicente St
Route 60 connects Route 5 (Third Street) with Vicente Street, via Cesar Chavez, Sanchez Street, Clipper Street, Laguna Honda Boulevard, Woodside Avenue, and Portola Drive. This crosstown route intersects many north-south routes, offering connections to many parts of the City.
To provide a connection to Vicente Street, Woodside Avenue (westbound), Dewey Boulevard, Taraval Street, Forest Side Avenue, Ulloa Street, and 16th Avenue are used. In the eastbound direction, Laguna Honda Boulevard is used instead of Woodside Avenue since its lower traffic volumes and less steep grade are more suitable for uphill cycling. In addition the left turn at Portola Drive is more easily made from Laguna Honda Boulevard (a T intersection).
West of 16th Avenue, Vicente Street, which serves the Lower Sunset on the north Side of Stern Grove is recommended, since it is flatter than Ulloa Street. It has no street car tracks and less traffic compared to Taraval Street.
