San Francisco car-free fitness freak Jackson West offers his tips on getting away from it all to enjoy nature without the dubious benefit of a car.
I haven’t done it in a while, but my bike trips into Marin begin with a Caltrain trip to San Francisco. From 4th & King, it’s a very pleasant bike ride around the Embarcadero past the piers and the Presidio to the Golden Gate Bridge.
Like West suggests, I always bring a transit pass and a little cash with me on my bike rides. Clipper has saved me from a long walk a couple of times in the Bay Area, and I routinely carry my Santa Cruz bus pass while riding around Santa Cruz County.
If you’re looking for transit-reachable destinations, Transit & Trails is a super handy resource.
