Take it from someone who did ride bikes, and visited SF once: you do not
want to ride a bike in SF. Much too many hills. Now if you ever visit the
flat parts of the Netherlands, a bike is a very good transport medium. But
then, public transport would be a good possibility too.
Who moved a few years ago, and now lives in the most hilly part of the
Netherlands. And who does not bike anymore since then.
