Bike the Bridge—Golden Gate Bridge, that is.
|My husband climbs the ramp to bridge deck level.|

The above is an example of our ride. Thankfully, my videographer son is a safe bike rider. As a mom though, I gasp when I find he films while riding with one hand on the handlebars. And later, I contend with a 15 year old's attitude when I mistakenly refer to "video". Which apparently is not the correct term. My son rolls his eyes "It's a vlog, Mom."

mountain biking camp just before vacation.
Would I Bike The Bridge again? For sure, but next time I'd go further, visit, Marin Park and/or Tiburon. What's not to like about bikes and San Francisco?

Enter the golf ball solution. According to a fellow cyclist he suggests drilling a hole the diameter of your kickstand into a golf ball. Push the ball in place. It's easy and also allows the bike to stand up on grass.
And yet, I'm not convinced it's what I want. Though, I may change my mind. You've got to admit, the golf ball has a certain sense of style. Especially if I use mini golf-type flashy colors.

as a nightlight on a moonless evening.
Hungry. We beeline to town for breakfast. Coffee and bagel sandwiches. Yum.
