Bike Club SF Ferry

Wow this week flew by and there are only a few weeks left of school.

The climax of this year for me was the bike club's ride in SF.

Our middle school bike club has been meeting since October and we rode to the ferry, rode the San Francisco waterfront, and returned to school entirely by bike.

With a totally flat and totally scenic waterfront punctuated by an optional climb over Golden Gate Bridge, it is no surprise bike rentals are off the charts the past few years.  While we easily rode most of the Embarcadero bike path, we did tackle a few miles of challenging city streets.

When I saw a perfect peloton (group of riders)  "taking the lane" with an annoying huge amphibious tour bus on our left and beautiful historic street car on the right I knew we had arrived.

Thankfully the daunting stretch is being redone!
