SF to San Mateo bicycle commute

I the last two weeks, I used the opportunity of lighter traffic to try to commute by bicycle from San Francisco to San Mateo.

I mostly followed the North-South Route Map that is available on the Peninsula Bicycle & Pedestrian Committee.

My exact complete route is 23.1 miles long door-to-door… and it takes me about 2 hours to complete. I have mapped it on veloroutes.org.

Here is also an image of the elevation data.

San Francisco home prices increased .15% in March 2007

According to the S&P Case/Shiller® published last Tuesday, home prices in San Francisco have increased by .15% since February 2007. This the first uptick since May 2006.

Since May 2006, San Francisco home prices have dropped by 3%. This is to be compared to a 8% increase between May 2005 and May 2006, which leaves me with the feeling that the correction is not over yet.

The data is available here.
