    San Francisco's Sunday Streets program rolls back to the Mission  District this Sunday with hockey demonstrations, bicycle activities and  tune-ups, circus and dance performances.
         
    "Sunday Streets has become a great way for families from all over  the Bay Area to enjoy our neighborhoods," said Mayor Gavin Newsom in a  statement. "It has also become a national model for creating a safe, fun,  car-free place for people to get out and get active."

    An extended route that runs along Harrison Street from Garfield  Square Park at 26th Street north to 17th Street adds an extra mile to the  program for activities such as skating lessons, roller soccer demonstrations  and several bike programs.

    The bike programs include bicycle maintenance, training and  education, demonstrations such as bus bike rack loading, and test rides on  electric bikes and a bike built for seven.

    Free bicycle maintenance and tune-ups will be provided by Sports  Basement's "Lube Fairies" at Garfield Square, REI at Harrison and 17th  Street, and the Bike Kitchen at 24th and Shotwell Streets.

    Pedestrians are welcome to pedal their way through the event with  a free bicycle rental offered at various locations on Harrison Street  provided by Bike and Roll, Bay Area Bicycle Rentals Tours, and Blazing  Saddles. Bike and Roll is offering free rides on a Funcycle, a round  seven-seater powered by all riders and steered by one.
         
    Bicycle education programs for youth and adults will be presented  by SF Bicycle Coalition's Freedom From Training Wheels at Garfield Square  Park on Harrison, and Presidio YMCA Bike Program's Kid's Bike Safety Rodeo in  front of Moscone Elementary School at Harrison near 22nd Streets.

    The San Jose Sharks Mobile Shark Tank slides in for a shoes-only  street hockey demonstration where kids can stop by and try street hockey with  borrowed sticks and balls, and RollerSoccer U.S. Team kicks in a  demonstration of it's own.

    Kid's activities at Garfield Square include yoga, games, hula  hoops and a lacrosse demonstration by Lacrosse for Life.

    A noontime high wire trapeze performance by Circus Bella will  tumble through the parking lot of O'Connell High School at Harrison and 20th  Streets.

    Organizers are still confirming details for World Cup finals  screenings at various locations along the route.
