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.

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.
