On our long weekend in San Francisco my wife and I (really just me) thought it would be great to bike across the Golden Gate Bridge. Sounds innocuous enough doesn't it? Well, when you haven't rode a bike in 10 plus years, and you do it on a weekend when all the other bike enthusiasts and runners are out in force, and you think it's a simple ride across the bridge, you find out it's not as enjoyable as you had hoped.The adventure starts at Pier 41 and ends on the other side of the bridge in Sausalito. This is a LONG ride up steep hills and across a bridge with little clearance for passing. Be aware that it can be a little frightening when heavy trafficed - like on a weekend!Overall, I will look back on this experience as a positive one and will remember the adventure. I think that my wife will kill me if I ever suggest another bike adventure again!Blazing Saddles was excellent! If you're going to do this - go with them!
