San Francisco - Jan’s Golden Gate Bridge Bike Ride

I've lost count how many times I've done the bike ride shown below but it occured to me that I've never really documented it. As such, it would seem remiss to not make a pictorial blog post showing one of my favorite rides in the world. My family and I currently live near AT&T park which is in the SOMA area of San Francisco. The route I usually take loops around the ball park and follows waters edge all the way across the Golden Gate Bridge into Marin County. If I'm feeling very frisky I might ride up into the headlands into the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Next time I ride I'll take some pictures near the Bay Bridge part of this ride as I didn't really think to start taking pictures until I got near the Fisherman's Wharf area of my bike ride.

The pic below was taken at the top of the hill overlooking Fort Mason.

The following picture was taken near the Marina Green. The bridge just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Look towards Crissy Field.

Looking up the hill -- the bridge is now within reach.
