A 6000 square foot mural celebrating the adjacent bikeway, which was the first street segment in San Francisco to be converted into a bicycle path. The painting describes a bicyclists' route crossing San Francisco from East to West - from the Bay to the Ocean.
The described route starts downtown, passes by this very mural, and continues along a zig-zag route called “the Wiggle,” which is symbolically represented in this mural as the waterway it once was. The Haight-Ashbury neighborhood and Golden Gate park follow, and the trip ends at Ocean Beach.
