I'll be travelling to San Francisco for a conference the last week of May and I'd like to rent a bicycle and bike around a bit. Any bike-related stuff going on then? This and other bike questions inside. [more inside]

I am flying into SFO tomorrow morning but unable to access the condo I am staying at until the late afternoon. I'd like to go to the farmer's market but I do not want wheel my luggage around. Where would be a good place to store it for the day?

Does anyone have any experience with the rental car company FlightCar
? If so, was it as good as it seems? I'm flying into SFO next week and I'll need to rent a car while I'm there. The FlightCar rates seem too good to be true.

A few months ago, I booked an incredible deal on a flight to spend 4 days next week in or around San Francisco. Life got busy, and I still haven't made any actual plans for what we're going to do, or where we're going to stay. We've been to SF a few times before, and want to rent a car and explore the area surrounding the city this time around -- particularly to the North. Any budget-friendly suggestions? [more inside]

I live in downtown Oakland, near 12th St. BART, and I have a flight at SFO at 7AM. I imagine this means I'd need to get to the airport around 6:20. I'd prefer to take BART to SFO but it is not running that early (is it?). What options do I have to get there?

Connecting international flights in the US -- apparently airports in America don't do 'sterile transit'? I may have to fly back to Canada at short notice, and I've never transited through the US (in the trip I'm looking at, SFO). [more inside]

When people use the airport code of the San Francisco international airport (SFO) to refer to the city of San Francisco, is that an example of synecdoche or metonymy? Can it be both? The airport isn't within the city limits of San Francisco, if that makes a difference. [more inside]

My 50 year old uncle is visiting San Fran this Thursday for the first time. I am picking him up at SFO at 11 and we want to be back to Novato by about 330 to beat (most of) the traffic. On the way out we will certainly go up to the Marin Headlands, and he is a big seafood guy so I am guessing we will catch lunch down near the Wharf or maybe at the Cliff House.
Obviously we don't have much time, so what recommendations do you all have for a few cool things to see in the city on the way out? I think we'll do Lombard, but otherwise I'm not terribly interested in super-touristy stuff. Maybe some historic spots?

California peeps: Where's a good place to spend the night while driving the coastal route south from Redwoods to San Francisco? Assume a noonish flight out of SFO the next day after dropping a rental car off downtown, so it should be well south of the midpoint.
