Here we are at the Sports Basement:
We had a couple very new riders and we didn't want their first experience crossing the Golden Gate Bridge to be when it was wet and slippery so we elected to ride around the city. First we headed up to Lincoln and stopped for the pretty view of the Marin Headlands:
Then we headed up to the Palace of the Legion of Honor:
From there, we headed down to the Great Highway and headed down the coast and then took Sloat to Clearfield to Ocean to San Leandro to Saint Francis to Santa Clara to Portola to Claremont to Dewey into Laguna Honda into 7th and into Golden Gate Park. We headed over to the Music Concourse and then took 8th to Cabrillo to Arguello. Most of the riders stopped for a snack there but I headed home. I had to go to two places to find Daiya (soy cheese) that I wanted to put in my breakfast burritos for lunch. I don't recommend Daiya for dishes where cheese is the most important element-- like pizza-- but for dishes where it's more of a background flavor I like it quite a bit. I had lunch and baked some cookies and then took the dogs over to Ben and Courtney's to visit. Elaine came over for dinner for her birthday with her boyfriend and her brother. They left pretty early which was good because I was beat. It was a fun day.
