I was up way too late on Thursday evening, and had to bail on a new riding buddy. We planned on doing a Marin Headlands loop early in the morning, but I didn't wake up till 7:30am. Instead, pressed for time, I did a shorter loop out to the coastline and through the Presidio. Oddly, the Great Highway was closed off for a good section. Either it's a regular thing or maybe it was due to the high winds the night before, but there were many sand drifts along the road.
The great thing was that I had the entire highway all to myself. I fought a mild headwind on the way north before cutting inland. It's so crazy to have this stretch of coastline just minutes away from our place.
