This was the 6th trip to Bay Area for my Ritchey Breakaway (and 15th trip overall). My Ritchey visited San Francisco area twice in 2011, went on three trips in 2012 and now another trip, first of hopefully several for 2013.
On Day 1 I met with my friend Keith who now lives in Bay Area, for a ride that included Morgan Territory and Mount Diablo - similar to queen’s stage of this year’s Tour of California. Only 65 miles and 6,700 ft of climbing but felt longer and tougher than it sounds:
For day 2 I didn’t have much time between meetings and business dinner, so I just rode around briefly around Wildcat canyon (21 miles, 2,000ft):
For day 3 I did an epic “greatest Hits of Marin County and SF” (again) 74 miles and 8,100 ft of climbing - included Mill Valley, Mt. Tam, Stinson Beach, Muir Beach, Muir Woods, Sausalito, Headlands, Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park and Twin Peaks.
