Rent a bike for the day and they'll give you maps with different routes through the city. Their bikes come with helmets and other safety gear, and their map of things to see by bike in the city is great...even if you can find a cheaper bike somewhere else check out their map.

Standard bikes run about $30 a day.

Their great map:

Mission Dolores have standing there even before San Francisco. The church and the cemetery, where you can find the California first governor grave among the tombs of young irish pioneers, was built in 1776 by Native American at the behest of Fray Junípero Serra, a franciscan responsible for California evangelization.

Is one of the most remarkable and picturesque places in San Francisco, and it's near Dolores Park, a beautiful and steep spot from where you can see the downtown skyline.

Completed in 1995, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (also known as SFMOMA) marks the first time Mario Botta designed a building in the United States. It became an instant architectural landmark...

This man made island is about halfway between SF and the east bay on the double decker bay bridge. It's completely surrounded by a raised walkway that's perfect for bike rides, walking, or running with pretty spectacular views of the entire bay.
You can get there on the 108 muni bus or by car.

Bay to Breakers

If you're lucky enough to be in San Francisco on the third Sunday in May, it'll be hard to miss this century-old foot race that engulfs a massive cross section of the city for a day. It started as an activity to build city morale after the 1906 earthquake, but has since grown into a glorified booze fest that brings out the craziest of the crazy in a town full of them. It's as much about the spectacle as it is the race.
