Cornell Alumni Association of Northern California Outdoors: 2022 Bike Across the Golden Gate Bridge with Stanford University
Don't miss the opportunity to bike the most sought after path in the Bay Area - 8-miles of pure beauty and fun from the Presidio across the Golden Gate Bridge and Back.
Join Cornell University alumni and friends for an exhilarating ride across the Golden
Gate Bridge - from the Presidio across the Golden Gate bridge and back again. Imagine a clear view of the city and the Marin Headlands as we span the bridge, stop and enjoy the views and return. The ride will be an out-and-back route of approximately 7 miles, with about 200 feet of elevation gain.
The group will meet at Sports Basement in the Presidio (address below), where folks will be able to rent bikes and helmets if needed. We will then ride through Crissy Field, over the Golden Gate Bridge to a lookout area to take pictures and enjoy the view. Once everyone regroups, snacks and hydrates, we’ll slowly return across the bridge, back to the Sports Basement.
Date: Saturday, Feb 5th at 1PM. Please arrive at 1PM so you have time to rent your bike and helmet, and get acquainted with it.
