There is nothing better than a mt. bike ride after work to relieve some of the stress. I just wanted to share a few pictures from one of my week day rides.
This is the kind of ride that I used to loath, it involves riding on pavement and fireroads. But after taking time to take in the scenery around me I realized that it was a great place to ride. How many people can say that they've ridden their bikes over the Golden Gate Bridge? I get to do it on a weekly basis. Plus the headlands has many climbs so it's a great place to work on your climbing. Nothing better than hill repeats after a long day at work.
Here are a few images from my ride:
Here is a view of the Golden Gate bridge from a distance:
