We rented bikes with the intention of riding over the Golden Gate Bridge and back. They gave us 7 speeds, which was adequate for the mostly flat trails along the bay.
This was Hubby's first time on a bike in 40 years, and I could tell. The first bike they gave me went almost flat a few yards out of the lot, I went back and they switched my bike out for one with air in the tires.
|Fog is 100% humidity and it poofed up my hair. :(|
Alcatraz in the background:
|Hubby threatend to use it if I pushed him too hard along the route.|
We got a few "Go Pirates!" from passing pedestrians and cyclists. Much fun watching Hubby wobble around on his bike, he stayed behind me most of the way, letting me lead.
I had the Fly6 camera in the seatpost, so I'll be interested to see the video when I get back home.
We saw cormorants, turkey vultures, egrets and a dabbling duck.
10 miles total.
|A bike specific traffic light. So cool.|
|One could also rent eliptical bikes. |
Note one of the members of this group making sure his snot locker was cleaned out before they were under way.
Now I know why my grips felt sticky.
