I'm heading up to San Francisco this weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) and bringing the bicycles with me!
Is there a similar site for SF bike rides? I've been Googling to no avail! And it looks like the SF Midnight Ridazz MySpace is defunct.
What's some good stuff to do up there? Bike paths? Rides? Restaurants? Bars? Club nights? Bike shops?
Do some searches on here on "sf" and "sfcm". There's stuff listed. Off the top of my head, I remember Ziegust being cool to check out.

I like biking through Golden Gate Park, over the bridge, and up through Marin. It's purdy. Then you can take a ferry back, if you like.

Everyone rides bikes there so there isn't much of a group ride scene. The only major group ride is SanFrancisco Critical Mass and they got polize escourts on motorbikes. It was weird but a LOT of fun going through the city and breaking laws next to cops. Check out Zeitgeist (bring your bicycle straight into the bar out the back to the hooks there) and Gestault Haus (racks inside in front)... great bicycle bars!!! Try the bloody mary and some brats, respectively.
There's a "wiggle" to get up to the plateau but I don't know what roads they are. Otherwise just ride everywhere!

Yeah, I did CM up there in December and it was tiny and the police escort was pretty chill, chatting on their cell phones and hanging out. One guy tried to start something and the cops were all like, "But why?"
It was fun. I finished the ride with like, five others, and we got tacos.

there are tons of things to do up here in SF - i am only here for the week - but before i go, i'll make sure my SF friends hit this thread and meet up with you.
all you have to do, tho, is ride your bike around SF - srsly, there are bikes EVERYWHERE! there are crosswalk lights with bike lights and bike lanes on all major roads. there is bike parking in front of bars, coffee shops and even on trains - BIKE PARKING!
i swear, i am so pampered up here right now - it's awesome!

I know, I brought my bike in December and it was a paradise.
I decided I am gonna move up there in about two years.
Yeah, if anyone is around in SF this weekend and wants to ride, email me!: happy[dot]land[dot]2007[at]gmail[dot]com
Or if you just want to hang, that's cool too. I like making friends!
