Biking over the Golden Gate Bridge

On a warm November Sunday, Toby and I take our bikes out for a ride in San Francisco. We park at the Marina Green and then bike through Crissy Field toward the Golden Gate. This time we were able to ride on the 'bike-only' side (last time it was closed for construction). We rode our bikes all the way to Marin County. On our ride back we rode past Marina Green toward Fisherman's Wharf where we had a late lunch at Capurro's before heading back home.
