TVirtually the entire day is in a state park or on a national sea shore.  What a way to come into San Francisco!   Tomales Bay Ecological Reserve, Point Reyes National Seashore, Bolinas Lagoon, Stinson Beach, Muir Beach, Mt Tamalpais State Park, Sausalito, and finally, the Golden Gate Bridge.  Welcome to San Francisco and make sure you have your camera on this 40 mile day. 

Yes, you have some climbing today, particularly as you work your way from the coast to Sausalito and the grades could get steep (up to 9% for short distances).  But it’s all worth it.

Enjoy the day.
