Biking in San Francisco: Embarcadero to Sausalito, Golden Gate Park


En route to the Golden Gate Bridge
Let's move away from the techie nature of this blog for a bit. I've been out biking with friends lately. A couple of weeks ago, Siddharth, Divya, Karthik and I went biking. We took the famous Fisherman's Wharf to Sausalito route in San Francisco, going across the Golden Gate bridge and coming back by ferry (passing the famous Alcatraz Prison Island) to The Port of San Francisco. The route was extremely picturesque - the only issue was that my phone was dead. Therefore, please forgive the few pics that I've got of the occasion.

Today, I went biking with Venkat and Eric. We're on the same team at Google. Venkat is a super fitness enthusiast - he runs and bikes for miles at a time. A little known fact - he's done some classes on Martial Arts too. Eric's the workaholic who finds it preferable to be working at midnight on a Saturday night than going out and partying (please note: this is by his own (possibly one-off) admission - I don't claim that this will continue). I had loads of fun with them and I probably had the longest bike ride of my life till date (18.8 miles). Pics are below. Enjoy!
