The punishing steepness of San Francisco’s hills is only matched by the dedication of the city’s cycling community. The cycling culture is unyielding in the city, and even the hills the city is famous for don’t present a problem throughout the whole of the city’s territory. The problems San Francisco has regarding biking stem from the infrastructure. However, with over 21,000 of cycling commuters in the city, new initiatives to improve the infrastructure are popping up left and right, and they are doing their share of work in making the city safer. And their dedication pays off – San Francisco is regularly cited as one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the US.
