Best Summer Bike Ride San Francisco 2006 - San Francisco-Pescadero-San Francisco

Now that the days are long enough to be out bike riding at 8 p.m., take off work early — say, at 3 — and ride down Skyline Boulevard, over the hill to Half Moon Bay, and south on Highway 1 to Pigeon Point Lighthouse, just past Pescadero. There's a youth hostel there (650-879-0633,, and if you've brought a satchel and made reservations, you can change, eat, chat with German tourists until you're sleepy, then bed down for the night. Bring ear plugs: The Germans snore. Awake bright and early — give yourself around four hours to get back to work — and watch the shadows lift from the beautiful coastal hills as the sun rises over San Francisco. It's not a vacation, exactly, but a damned good facsimile.
