At the northern base of the Golden Gate Bridge come the Marin Headlands. As suggested to me a few weeks back, I took a bicycle jaunt, finally, through the freshly paved roads of the area. In addition to the varied and rugged terrain comes this absolutely spectacular, almost aerial, view.
And so, here we have yet another option for a relatively short cycling loop close to the city, one that I obviously recommend. You can catch your breath with the view after a challenging climb and before a rewarding descent… and before some more climbing. Next time I’ll need to extend the loop for a more respectable total distance!
