Biking in the Bay Area

Before moving to San Francisco I heard a lot about many different parts of the Bay Area. Tech culture, bars, commute, cost of living, hiking, sierras etc but none mentioned the insane biking that the surrounding areas gives you. There is absolute golden roads to bike less than 10 kilometers from San Francisco. For anyone who lives in SF and regulary uses Strava, these images are almost a meme at this point. It’s obligatory for any cyclist to tag their Strava uploads with these images over and over but I realized that not everyone lives in SF and uses Strava. These document my three favorite routes: Paradise Loop (90 KM), Reyes Loop (132 KM) and the Mt. Tam climb through Fairfax (105 KM).
