A couple of months before I moved out of the Marina, I purchased a hybrid bike to ride around Crissy Field and the Presidio. While I had lived in the Marina for two years, I never fully took advantage the neighborhood so jumped at the opportunity to buy an affordable bike to ride around town.
After work, I hopped on my bike and rode along Marina Blvd toward Crissy Field. It was the highlight of my day! And because it was a fun activity I truly enjoyed, it never felt like I was exercising or working out. I finally found a sport I could fully commit to for many years to come.
The view of the majestic red bridge against the blue sky coupled with the cool ocean breeze was just what the doctor ordered after a busy day at work. If I felt brave enough to bike after all the professional cyclist in their expensive bikes and high tech nylon clothing, I’d bike up the ridiculously steep hills of the Presidio with them. The view, of course, left me breathless. Not only because I was on the verge of collapsing from biking up the hill, but the view of the city from the top will steal anyone’s breath away.
If you are looking for a fun activity to do this weekend, hop on a bike and ride around Crissy Field! I think it’s the perfect activity to do with the family on Father’s Day.
Start from the entrance of Crissy Field and ride all the way down to Fort Point, which is at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. From there, look across the bay and you’ll see the city and her majestic beauty.
Have a beautiful weekend and happy Father’s Day!
