Biking in Napa.

 Rob and I spent last weekend in Napa hanging out after I won a free night’s stay at the Carneros Inn.  I know!  I used to be one of those people that said “I never win anything” until I won this great stay :).  The resort is beautiful and posh so if you’re looking for a fancy weekend away in Napa, this is definitely the spot.  We took the property bikes out for the day when we got there and spent some time pedaling around the back roads.  It was beautiful and it felt great to be cruising around the orange and red vineyards.

Making sure we were following the back roads map 🙂

Cycle Touring.

image
I’ve always wanted to ride a bike across the Golden Gate Bridge, so when I realized a handful of my other friends had the same desire we pulled a group together and rented some bikes for a self guided tour of the North Bay.  We rented our bikes from Sports Basement in the Presidio since it’s the closest to the bridge.  You can also rent at Pier 39 if you’d like.

image
Of course we stopped to take a few photos 🙂  This is the full biker gang.

After riding over the bridge, we made our first stop in Sausalito at Bar Bocce for some snacks and an ice cold beer.

Sheena at Bar Bocce!

We made it to stop number 1!

After some rest and snacks, we hopped back on the bikes to head to Tiburon.

image
The bike paths are beautiful in the north bay!

Just riding through.

We cruised around Tiburon for a while before catching the very windy Ferry back to the city (Pier 39).

image
The sun was starting to set as we took the ferry back to the city and it was gorgeous.

image
Riding bikes through the pier was fun to check out the performances.  This guy and all of his sound inventions were awesome!

image
Riding along the bike path back to Sports Basement was beautiful.  We rented the bikes for the day so we just needed to make sure we returned them before they closed.

image
The total loop was about 17-20 miles.  There were some little hills and that not so little hill up to get on the bridge but every hill rewarded us with a spectacular view of some kind.

We felt pretty accomplished after our ride so we stopped for a sunset jumping photo :).

This is a great, active and outdoorsy thing to do on a perfect weather day in San Francisco!
