San Rafael and Marin County


Today I traveled slightly south, from my hosts in San Rafael to my new hosts in Greenbrae. The new hosts live on an even steeper hill than the previous ones (eek!) and fortunately, they were also kindly willing to drive me up as I arrived.

The ride there (to the bottom of the hill) was pleasant, taking me first through scenic downtown San Rafael. (Take a look at the architecture, and also that propaganda museum! Sadly it was closed when I went by, but I love the concept, and was delighted to spot it as I biked past.)

After I left the city limits, I found myself on more bike paths (yay!) including tunnels and bridges. (Can you hear the outro theme to the original Dr. Who when you look at that tunnel pic?)

After some lunch and a brief chat with my hosts, I headed out through Marin County toward Sausalito. I didn’t quite make it all the way there—daylight was fading—but I did get as far as another nice locally owned natural foods store, and to get there I traversed what felt like several miles on various different bike paths, some right along the water. It was all very pleasant.

On the way back, I stopped in Corte Madera to redeem my birthday coupon at Veggie Grill for the familiar flavor of a Santa Fe “chicken” wrap, then hopped in a Lyft (50% off promotion right now!) to make it back up that formidable hill.

Tomorrow I think I’ll go to the redwoods in Muir Woods National Monument! Really looking forward to that.

  1. Oh … better check that Muir Woods tix are available. Sometimes they are hard to get. Or maybe that’s just parking, not sure. Also a bit $$ to enter unless you have a National Parks pass. Mount Tam is a possible alternative, especially if you could get to West Point Inn. I don’t know how ambitious that would be for you.

    1. Thanks! I actually just went to Muir Woods today. (And used the parks pass I bought in Joshua Tree last month!) What a gorgeous place. I’ve heard good things about Mount Tam too, though not sure if I’ll be able to make it there on this trip. So much beauty in this area!!)
