It’s always been a dream of mine to bike across the Golden Gate Bridge, and I finally did it! My brother, sister in law and bff woke up early on Saturday morning and biked across the bridge to Sausalito. It was about 14 miles round trip and a great spin on the new set of wheels. There were a few small rolling hills, and one very large hill climb at the end. I climbed the whole thing and it felt SO GOOD to get my heart rate going. Once in Sausalito, we stopped for lunch at a place called Cibo. I would highly recommend this place; all their food options are fresh, healthy and delicious. I got the chicken salad and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was garnished with fresh heirloom tomatoes as well! Bonus! Steph got the gazpacho which was to die for and the lentil salad was also very filling and tasty. Nomz.
While the view on the bridge was spectacular, I’m not sure I would do it again to be honest. Unless you’re biking very early in the morning, the chaos of tourists was a bit frustrating. There’s lots of beginners on the bridge who are still getting the hang of being on a set of wheels. Nonetheless, it was the perfect start to a very fun weekend and all I can say is that if you have a bike – RIDE IT!
