A Bay Area favorite. This ride takes you across the Golden Gate Bridge and through Sausalito. Ascend to the heights of Hawk Hill via Conzelman Road, taking in panormaic views of San Francisco and the East Bay. Then plunge down along the coast through Fort Baker, back through the tunnel to Sausalito, down the bike path and over Camino Alto to Corte Madera. Then enjoy a scenic clockwise route on Paradise Loop around the Tiburon peninsula for a relaxing break at the Caffe Acri. The return route takes you through Belvedere, back through Sausalito and over the Goldden Gate Bridge again before returning to Oakland via BART.
