    Need some directions :)

    Okay, this is my little dilema. I have a friend who is trying to clear out a bucket list before moving back to the east coast. One of the items is "Ride bike across the Golden Gate". We'll be coming up from San Jose, so I was thinking about parking at the fields, over by sportsbasement. Looking at the roads from bikely, I have no idea where to go.. any help would be appreciated. Thanky!

    Here's a couple of parking spots closer to the bridge but parking
    at Chrissy Field or near Sports Basement is good too.

    That was my original plan, but the person I'm going on the ride with isn't up for that kind of distance or climb. I didn't want to hijack the thread and have been getting rather frequent inquiries as to the route so I just started this thread to see if anybody would just say "go here, up that street.. under this thingy.. across.."

    Marco posted up a bikely since I made the thread so I have an idea I think, we'll see . Can't be that hard. <-- Famous last words

    There's easy and free parking very close from the bridge. Drive West up Merchant Rd. from the bridge parking lot. The street goes uphill to a stop where it Lincoln Blvd.. Cross Lincoln on Ralston up to Storey Av. where there are baseball fields on the right side. You can park on the grass across from the fields. If there's no free spot keep going until Storey reaches a small house along another field. There's a parking lot on the right of the house and a larger one on its left. You can park there for as long as you need and it's only 1/4 mile from the bridge.
