Rudyard Kipling once said, the only downside to San Francisco, CA is how hard it is to leave. Many would agree with Kipling’s statement, especially for a Bay Area native like me- I cannot imagine living anywhere else.
For a cyclist, The San Francisco, Bay Area has plenty to offer- sweeping hills, serene beach trails, countless trails with beautiful scenery and let’s not forget about the year round temperate climate.
With spring like weather in mid- December, I decided to do a quick ride around Don-Edwards wild-life refuge. I folded our two EuroMini's , put in our trunk, made a quick cafe stop and off we went.
Our, dog Sophie enjoyed a little bit of "off leash" action. As you can see, the mixture of salt, sand and marsh from the picture. The All- terrain tires of the Urbano rode through this terrain with ease. In addition, the rust resistant chain will be oblivious to the sand.
This historic marshland area just south of San Francisco was founded in the early 1970’s to preserve wildlife in the area. In addition, it also has historic sites from early settlers and duck hunters.
Don Edwards trail has plenty of fun to offer: from paved trails, quick elevation changes, and scenic views of San Francisco Bay Area. My EuroMini Urbano proved more than adequate for the various terrains that the trail had to offer, it even caught a few double takes from hikers admiring the unique style of the bike.
