Tours around San Francisco Area
« on: August 29, 2014, 09:22:26 am »
I am traveling to San Francisco in a few weeks and was looking to do a three or four day bicycle tour around the area. I have never been to the west coast, so I have no idea what to expect or where to start. What are you favorite tours that go through the SF area? Should I head east or along the coast? Are there places for bikers to camp? Any ideas or help would be great!

You could conceivably go either direction. There is one possible route that involves going out towards that Napa Valley (ferry to Vallejo), heading north towards Calistoga (camp at Boethe Mills SP (sp?) ) over through Healdsburg/Santa Rosa (skimpy camping) out to the coast (Bodega Bay SP) then south (Samuel P. Taylor SP) than back to SF.

South maybe not so good, down CA 1 to Half Moon Bay SP >Santa Cruz (New Brighton SP) > Watsonville Area (Sunset Beach SP) and then? That's the tough part (my opinion) - either backtrack or take public trans back to SF.
