San Francisco Part 3: Golden Gate Bridge - 11th March 2006

The final part of a two-night stop in San Francisco (on the way back to the UK for a few days) involves the hiring of a bike from Blazing Saddles' outpost on Fisherman's Wharf waterfront, to cycle from there over to Sausalito across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. It's a great ride, which involves some major hill-related action (including one in Marin County that's too steep to cycle up), and an incredible wind which blasts constantly across the deck of the bridge.
