Dropping kidd off at USF - where to ride?

Hey all -

I'm dropping my step-daughter off at USF in August. I'll have maybe half a day to poach a ride somewhere.

We'll probably stay somewhere in SF - any suggestions for a close-in (hour drive max) ride? Climbing doesn't bother me - you have oxygen there....

If you are ready for a scenic ride unique to the Bay Area I would recommend the Golden Gate-Sausalito-Fairfax-Mt. Tam via Alpine Lake ride. It will be around 50 miles totals with about 4,000' of climbing, no driving necessary as you can start from USF.

+1 Tons of great rides in the area, but it's hard to think of one prettier than that one.

It'll be the week of August 20th - I think I'll be able to get out Saturday - I believe Sunday is when we drop her off. I'll get more info soon. And hopefull, I don't get the stare of death for doing this. I've already told my wife I'm bringing my bike....

Mt. Tam is a nice ride. The Marin Headlands and Sausalito is also nice if you want a shorter ride. Do both if you want something longer.
