Default San Francisco


My class (electronics) is taking a trip to San Fransisco 13.-22. march.
We will have arranged stuff most of the days from 13. to 18. march, but
the last days we do what we want.

Are there any unicyclist in San Fransisco with a unicycle to lend away
in this period. Anything special uni-related happening in the area in
this period?

Rusty, Norway

There's a unicycle basketball game on Tuesdays in Berkeley.
It's reasonably likely there will be some MUni stuff going on that
weekend, in preparation for Moab.
Post or send me a message, we can work something out.

Hey. I ride all over SF, but mostly I've been focusing on the
southeatern part and northeast part of the city. If you want to do some
riding with me it could probably be arranged. I don't have an extra uni,
but I do have a nice muni and a bc wheel. I'm happy to share both.

I'm sure there'll be a muni ride around that time in preperation for
moab, and I don't see why wse couldn't fina muni for you to use if you
need one.

SF public transportation is pretty excellent (in general), so you won't
need a car or a taxi.

We meet at 6:30 PM on Tuesdays, at Strawberry Creek Park in Berkeley
during the winter.

I would take issue with the idea that SF has even an average public
transportation system; the only good thing about it is that it's called
MUNI.

Tom, I don't understand. It's definitely not uyp to the standards held
in places like Japan, but I don't understand why someone from Berkeley
is talking. It's an hour between busses in Oakland and Berkeley, and
they don't even go everywhere. I've never waited for a bus for longer
than 40 minutes in SF. I think that it's pretty amazing that you can get
from anywhere to anywhere in San Francisco by walking 2-3 blocks and
taking 2 buses.

I grew up using the New York transit system, which is far better than
MUNI. Plus, pretty much every major non-US city has a better
transportation system than MUNI.

I just moved here from Houston, where one hour waits fir the bus were
the norm... Granted im in Contra Costa county, but the service here is
actually accurate to within 10 minutes. Definately a welcome change.

This sounds fun, if it is some munitrip in the area at the time I have
spare time (18. - 21/22.). And I'll try and see about the basketball, I
have never played unibasket.
