Today I had to work out of a different office one city over... which meant I got to change up my bike commute!

I've used a more direct route from this office before (a mix of a pleasant trail and long ugly stretches paralleling 101, a busy highway).  This time I decided to do a less direct route.

On Google Maps, I dragged the suggested route around a bit, and it suggested a slightly longer route that followed what appeared to be less trafficked roads, some of which didn't have bike lanes.  It was a couple miles longer, but turned out to be fairly pleasant.  There were a couple of overpasses like this one that provided expansive views.

In the evening I ignored Google Maps' attempts to stay away from an obviously shorter main road.  It turned out to be a busy road connecting a couple highways and an expressway, and it didn't have a bike lane.  In the future, I may listen to Google Maps. :)

Did you choose the bike selection on google maps? You can adjust the settings for less direct, and less hilly. But I think you have to do that on the desktop...

+City of Mountain View, CA I wanted to thank Samuel Gonzalez and the City Streets staff for fixing a large bump in a bike lane on Shoreline I reported via "Ask Mountain View."  I had started avoiding the bike lane on that part of Shoreline because of it, but this morning it was one of the smoothest sections of the bike lane. :)

I like that there's a spot for one more, after the next screw up.

I love flying over SF on a clear day...  even with an engine and dirty window obscuring the view. :)

Wally is very food motivated, but is also good at waiting until he's given the okay to eat something.

Wally at bath time when he was a bit younger.  This was after walking around Point Isabel, a huge off-leash park.  Dogs tend to get muddy there, but fortunately there's a dog washing place near the exit.

Wally featured on the official flag of Corgis.

I had this idea I couldn't get out of my head of replacing the bear on the California flag with a corgi.  I have approximately no artistic talent, so this was the best I could come up with.  I have yet to find someone willing to draw a better version (including using a font that actually looks like the California flag)...

I brought my bike into PUBLIC bikes in SF for some repairs, which gave me some time to walk around the area.  I headed up Market Street and saw this "jug handle" which makes it easier for bikes to turn left onto Valencia Street.  (Looks like it may actually be called a "bicycle bay?")

After the bike was repaired, I rode around a bit to test it out--my first time biking on Market Street.

I also realized that in SF it's important to check out the terrain when planning out a bike route.  I planned a test ride from the bike shop to our car, and found one that looked simple and just over a mile long.  I had noticed a slight incline in Market which seemed good for testing my gears... and then I turned onto Buchanan and could barely make it up the hill.  (Coming down was fun though...)

I walk by that spot every day!  Also, SF takes its altitude-change-limiting routes pretty seriously: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wiggle

Union Square halo.

Or, "Having a hal-of a time in San Francisco." No? Okay...

Good advice if you're going to lie in the crosswalk like that.

Wally's okay with wading through shallow water, but it looks like this water may have been kind of cold.

Stone pot bibimbap and kimchi fried rice were good, but could use a little bit more flavor (or maybe even just salt?). Their soy garlic KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) was delicious.

I was happy with everything I tried at Pera. For the main course I had the Pera Talas Böregi, which was chicken and veggies wrapped in phyllo dough, topped with apple matchsticks and coconut curry sauce. The homemade Greek yogurt dessert topped with honey, nuts and fruit was simple but delicious. And since it's yogurt it's healthy right? We were part of a large group (~15 adults and 4 kids), but they accommodated us well.

The pastries are as delicious as they look... and they look amazing. :) The raspberry rose has an almond cake & raspberry/rosewater filling with white chocolate petals, and the chocolate heart has a creme brulee/chocolate mousse/almond cake center. They both had great, balanced flavor and were just sweet enough. It took us a few minutes to start eating the dessert because we didn't want to ruin the presentation. They serve pourover Blue Bottle as well, which pairs really well with the dessert. One pastry might be enough for two to share, but it is hard resisting trying more.

A great place to come with a group--lots of delicious small (and some large) plates to share, and none that we tried were disappointing. Their sliders and pork belly are particularly good. They've got an enormous wine list and a variety of cocktails, but their non-alcoholic options are a bit more limited. (You can ask for some off menu options, like a virgin mojito that was decent.)
