Biking to Larkspur

March 5th, 2012: San Francisco

During unusually sunny Saturday weather, J and I biked across the Golden Gate Bridge and headed north. We mostly stuck to the bay’s edge, exploring the houseboats of Sausalito, the marsh path near Mill Valley, and the scary highway path to get to the Tiburon Ferry.

Our route: red line outbound, blue ferry, maroon return. Total mileage: 30.

After Sausalito, I stopped taking photos and just enjoyed the ride. I was tired. When we got back to the city, we ate lunch at the ferry building, then biked along the bay. I picked up a high-powered front lamp for my bike that looks like something the Israeli military would endorse.

The city in late afternoon.

We got home around 5:30, sun kissed and sweaty. It was time to watch the Muppet Movie and eat cookies.

Exercise, views, cookies and a movie. That’s a good day.
