I think San Francisco is the top 5 cities on my list to live in
Came back from SF yesterday and thought I'd post up some pics from our cycling trip we took on Thursday with some rented bikes. Note to myself for next time: Take my own saddle. The saddles on the rentals sucked, hard. Way too mushy.
Bikes were Trek 5200 for me and a cruiser for my wife.
So we went from the Fisherman's Wharf over the Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito and close to Mill Valley before we turned around and hit the Ferry, since my wife's butt couldn't take it no mo'. I could have gone on and on, since butt pain doesn't bother me as much as bonking during a century ride.
So it was 15 miles we got into our legs and the weather was just beautiful. Sunny and 52 degrees. Lot's of roadies and even a 3 man training group passed us, where the wife mentioned "I bet you'd love to chase and work with that group, right?" I'd crack a knowing smile but let her know that today is not the day since she was with me
So on to some of the pics I took.
Rental place close to Fisherman's Wharf.
View from the south side before you get on the Golden Gate Bridge.
Ship anchored west of the Wharf.
Size matters when you have to carry significant weight.
That's right. Sign says it all.
Pic my wife took of me.
Shot from the start of the Golden Gate bridge.
Next time I'm going back to SF I think I'm going to buy a travel case for my Madone and go riding on my own bike. So much to see and the climbing just inside the city is enormous. Those are some steep streets.
