What’s faster than Muni? Everything.

Maybe I shouldn’t be too surprised at this — but I’m kind of in awe that biking home from downtown San Francisco (entirely uphill, mind you) is faster than taking a bus.

GPS info riding my bike:


GPS info while riding the bus:


Here are the times:
* Bike – 2.64 miles in ~18 minutes, 8.62 mph average.
* Bus – 2.35 miles in ~20 minutes, 7.06 mph average.

(It might seem like I’m cherry picking, but I’ve recorded data from a number of different days. The bicycle is always faster!)
