Cycling Golden Gate Bridge at Code One 2018

This year, there are no Community events on Sunday – a free day to enjoy the sounds and sites of San Francisco. I have been going to JavaOne since 2005 and have not cycled across the bridge so I decided it was long overdue, ably assisted by my friends and co-attendees Bethan Palmer and David Heffelfinger.

We caught the Trolley Bus over to Fisherman’s Wharf. This is an adventure in itself and if you have seen any movies, you will quickly recognise the city – Mrs DoubtFire’s house is down on Steiner street and Robin Williams real house is also in town……

At Fishermans wharf we rented 3 bikes from Blazing Saddles. Sadly there was no option for a Goodies style 3 person trandem. The route is a spectacular 5 kilometre trip (with some fairly gentle hills). The Golden Gate bridge itself has a dedicated cycle path and passing places where you can stop to rest, take photos and even spot the dolphins in the sea.
