Best Bike Ride

Samuel P. Taylor State Park, Lagunitas

This works best during the summer months: Get off work early Friday — 3 p.m. or so. Attach panniers or a BOB trailer and pack with food, sleeping bag, tent, and other camping gear. Ride your bike across Golden Gate Bridge, through Fairfax, and along St. Francis Drake Boulevard and a footpath/bike trail that borders Papermill Creek into a redwood grove that is the home of the Samuel P. Taylor State Park campground. Unfold your tent. Wake up Saturday in the redwoods and ride home Sunday afternoon, feeling like you've really been somewhere.
