Ellen (aka PABadger, she of Holstein 100 fame) turned in her Ph.D. thesis and is heading off soon to a new job, so we threw her a sendoff bike ride culminating in a fun lunch at a brewpub.
Ellen, Lee, Nancy (BikeGoddess) & I started out in San Francisco, rode across the Golden Gate Bridge and thru Sausalito, where we met up with Sarah (maillotpois). We continued on thru Tiburon & along the Paradise Loop and up into Larkspur. We met up with other TE-ers for lunch and brewskis at the Marin Brewing Co. in Larkspur, and ended the day with a scenic ferry ride across the bay back to San Francisco.
Here are a few pics from a very fun day.
Once we crossed the bridge we took the back route into Sausalito via Ft. Baker, where we were treated to this stunning view of the bridge:
Here we are along the Paradise loop, which was a very nice route indeed (l to r: jobob, maillotpois, PABadger, & BikeGoddess)
Here's a view of the skyline on our way back to San Francisco:
We had lots of laughs this day!
