On Christmas Eve my family and I took a nice bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge. It was my first time ever to do that and I have pretty much lived in the Bay all my life. It was pretty cold and we parked in the near by Presidio. I did pretty well on the windy roads leading to the bridge. The west side of the bridge is for bicycles while the east side is for pedestrians. I am out of shape and I was huffing and puffing not too far into the ride!! I managed to get over once I adjusted my gears. I had fun! I suggest you do it at least once. You can always rent a bike and the closest bike rental place is on Hyde and there are special guided tours or you can do a self guided one too. Here is a link to Blazing Saddles if you want or need to rent a bicycle.
Enjoy my photos!!
