Click for San Francisco, California Forecast

San Francisco, USA

 

Larkspur Ferry

While I have ridden my most favorite Golden Gate Bridge bicycle route great many times, today I have extended my range to the Larkspur ferry terminal. What promoted me to go is because bicyclists are offered free ride on the ferry in the weekends of May. This gives me a great excuse to explore the part of Marin County that I have not been to before. It delights me to find a bike path that goes nearly all the way from the Golden Gate Bridge to Corte Madera. The path goes through the mud flats along the bay. While it is not as spectacular as the Golden Gate Bridge, it offers me a quiet and nice diversion.

I returned to San Francisco by ferry. The ride was free as promised. They must have kept this promotion a secret, because I found only two bicycles on board. Despite it was a cloudy day, I enjoyed the relaxing ride home on the top deck.

San Quentin
While the popular Sausalito ferry offer a view of the former prison on Alcatraz, the Larkspur ferry offer a glimpse of an active prison in San Quentin as well.
