Bike Routes to Ocean Campus

Please note: These routes can help get you started.  As you bike to campus, you will undoubtedly discover your own preferred tricks and side streets. You can also view a map of city-wide bike routes (which includes the bike lanes and paths that connect to these routes) at  Another important resource is talking to your fellow cyclists about their routes. Ask other CCSF riders how they get to school; you'll find a route that is right for your comfort and speed.

From the Northeast, Mission, SOMA, Downtown

Take the Valencia St. bike lane south, turn right onto the Tiffany St. bike boulevard, turn right onto 29th St., then a quick left onto San Jose Ave.  Follow the San Jose bike lane until the Arlington/Wilder/Bosworth exit (follow bike lane).  Follow Wilder to Diamond, turn left onto Diamond and right onto Monterey.  Follow Monterey straight onto Circular Ave. From Circular Ave., you can either turn right on Hearst, left on Gennesee, and head into the north side of campus, or follow Circular until you can turn right on Marston Ave which will lead you into campus from the east side. (Please note that the return route to the Mission is different and can be a bit trickier.  Riders who are less comfortable riding in heavy traffic may want to try riding back on Circular to Monterey to Diamond in Glen Park then over Chenery (see Otherwise, riders more comfortable in heavy traffic can follow Circular back to Monterey, go straight on Monterey towards Glen Park for a block, then take a right onto the overpass marked San Jose Ave. North.  After cycling over the overpass, and a short stretch of San Jose with no bike lanes, the San Jose bike lane will begin and carry you into the Mission.)
