We checked something off the bucket list today, as we rented bikes and wrote the Golden Gate Bridge!
This morning after a complimentary breakfast at a Best Western, we traveled north from Aptos, CA and found a bike shop (Golden Gate Rides) in the Theatre District, not the popular places near the Wharf, because we wanted to do more than the bridge, we wanted some of the city experience. It was great because we pedaled through part of the city (Russian Hill, Nob Hill, Lombard St) and then, after 6 or 7 miles, there it was - that popular landmark known around the world, the Golden Gate Bridge!
We biked it over and back and slowly meandered back. Biking San Fran takes some energy. One friendly biker who noticed we were pouring over our map at a street corner, helped us out, giving us a few options, noting that one way would allow us to "maintain our current elevation" - we loved that line!
In the late afternoon, we headed via car across the bridge to the Sausalito boardwalk - lots of unique shops, and gorgeous views of the Bay, SF, and the California hills, and a fish dinner. One for the books!
