Golden Gate Bridge

When you think of San Francisco I can pretty much guarantee the first thing you think of is the Golden Gate Bridge. I am not going to lie I thought it may have been a bit of a disappointment, oh how wrong was I. The impressive structure can be seen for miles and the colour is just wow against blue skies. 

I went into full on tourist mode with this one and cycled from Fisherman's Wharf along the cycle path right over the bridge. It is a really nice cycle apart from a couple of stupidly steep hills which I was not prepared for. I instantly dismounted and pushed the heavy rental bike up- lets just say there was a lot of huffing and puffing going on. 

Anyway it took us a couple of hours to cycle there and back although in hindsight it would have been better to give ourselves longer and headed to Sausalito too. We could have then got the ferry back but alas time didn't permit. One for another day eh!
