San Francisco - Alcatraz and Golden Gate Bridge
For the athletically challenged mum and dad, the ride from downtown to the start of Golden Gate bridge was a big deal. Especially the steep slope just before the entrance. Dad managed to paddled his way up, but his heart was in danger of jumping out........ The ride across the bridge was relatively easy and definitely a worthwhile experience. As they were trying to find the turning into Sausalito, a more experience biker said "It's all down hill from here." Indeed, it was and certainly the most effortless part of the journey including the ferry ride from Sausalito to the Ferry Building.
The bike journey also gives you a few different views of the famous Alcatraz. Mum and dad only saw it from afar and decided not to venture there.
