A few weekends ago, I decided to take a stroll on the Golden Gate Bridge. After living in the Bay Area all my life, I have never attempted this trip. To my surprise, I was not aware that one side of the bridge's walkway, the West side, is reserved for bicyclists. Is it me or is this sign confusing?
I decided to take a stroll to the West side to see what it was all about. To get to West side from the vista point shown in yesterday's post, I had to walk down this narrow staircase.
Here I am strolling underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a little unnerving hearing the clanking of metal as cars, tour buses, and trucks whizzed directly above me.
This is a view of the bridge through the chain link fence.
This is the view from the West side walkway. I did not stay long due to pedestrian restrictions and I did not want to be trampled by an onslaught of oncoming bicyclists.
