Bikepacking, Californie, San Francisco, USA

Lion’s gate to Golden gate

We made it!

Highway 1 all the way to San Francisco was amazing, hilly, windy, breathtaking! Great switchbacks with downhills and climbs that made the ride even more interesting.

Charming coastal towns, flowers blooming everywhere along the road, diverse wildlife, it was amazing!

Pavement was mostly a 8/10 (according to Heidi and my grading scale). The shoulder on the other hand was mainly inexistent, which made some of our coexistence with cars nerve wrecking.

Heidi’s parents met us in Manchester where we had our second to last camping night and gave us the royal treatment! They fed us, made sure we were warm and even offer to carry our packs for the next day. Thanks for making me your honorary daughter!

Our last day was a 50km ride from Point Reyes to the Golden Gate. Another huge climb to start the day didn’t slow Heidi down. It was awesome to see her so excited to finally get a glimpse of the bridge.

We made it!
