Bay Trail – Part 4

Today’s ride was a continuation of my quest to complete the Bay Trail, 400 miles of trail/road around both the San Francisco Bay and the North Bay.

Segment: San Francisco to Fremont
Mileage: 56.7 mi today/198.8 mi total
Travel Time: 4 hrs 27 min
Average Speed: 13.0 mph

Counties Visited: San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda
Towns Visited: San Francisco, Brisbane, South San Francisco, Millbrae, Burlingame, San Mateo, Foster City, Redwood City, San Carlos, Menlo Park, East Palo Alto, Newark, Fremont

Best Moment(s): Pretty much the whole ride. The wind was from the north, and I was heading south, so it was very, very smooth.

Worst Moment(s): Saddle soreness.

Summary: This ride was much less painful than last week’s, in part because of the tailwind, in part because of the relative lack of hills (less than 500′ total climbing), and probably in part because of endurance built from last week’s ride.

    Surely that “400 miles” is a typo with one (or two?) too many zeroes? Or perhaps it lacks a decimal? The entire Bay Trail is an impressive goal indeed!
