From my house to the Bridge and back is a little over twenty miles, a nice ride for a lazy day, and I go there several times a month. Sometimes it's my goal for the day; sometimes I stop there on my way to or from the southern beaches. It's a restful place, the sea and sky always feel more intimate here than at other spots along the local coastline, and there are plenty of other cyclists stopping in or just passing by. I've met friends there, by intent or by circumstance, and I've made friends there. Day or night, in any weather, it's a good place to ride to. The Bridge. Take a look!
