Me versus the Streets of San Francisco

I am now the proud owner of a brand new bicycle. After much deliberation, I bought it from Warm Planet Bikes, which is right next to the Caltrain station on 4th and Townsend. I also bought a helmet and a lock.

So far so good. Except, since I lost the key to my bike lock in Japan back in... February last year (I think, something like that), I haven't ridden a bicycle for over a year.

Also, Nagoya is a pretty flat city. San Francisco is not.

So I rode around for about half an hour yesterday, and boy are my legs tired. I gave up on the last half mile or so (uphill on Broadway from Embarcadero) and walked the rest of the way.

Let's see if I can get my biking mojo back.
