Good Weekend: Sunday, December 30

Pier 39 to Sausalito Bike Ride: Anytime, celebrate the end of the year with an afternoon ride across the bridge. Start at Pier 39 and cruise alongside the waterfront, through Crissy Field, and bike your way over the Golden Gate Bridge. Take in the legendary view as you pedal toward the beautiful town of Sausalito. Once off the bridge, turn right onto Sausalito Lateral Road, which turns into Alexander Avenue, which takes you into town with views of the San Francisco skyline along the way. In Sausalito, relax at a local cafe or enjoy the artwork in the town’s many galleries. Take your bike back to San Francisco on the ferry, courtesy of the Blue & Gold Fleet, arriving at Fisherman’s Wharf.
