San Francisco has consistently been rated by Bicycling magazine as one of America’s best cities for cycling. San Francisco is the largest city in California to be rated as such. In a fall 2010 issue of VeloNews, five of thirteen of the United States’ most-decorated cyclists rated the San Francisco Grand Prix (unfortunately discontinued as of this writing) as the best-ever American race. San Francisco is consistently rated as one of the top five destination cities in the United States, and Fisherman’s Wharf and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area—which includes the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, the Presidio, Ocean Beach, the Marin Headlands, and other famous landmarks—is consistently rated as one of the country’s top ten places to visit.
