The Iconic Sunrise Ride Up Hawk Hill
This overlook at Hawk Hill has become something of an icon for Bay Area bikers - morning rides take off from all points around the city before day break and riders head across the Golden Gate Bridge attempting to crush yesterday's effort up the next hill. Once over the bridge, turning left to travel up into the headlands (instead of turning right towards Sausalito) is the directive and you'll climb literally until the hill crests atop Hawk Hill. If you get confused, follow the cycling clubs on their way up. You'll fit right in by crushing yourself to make it to the top so you can watch the sunrise over this magnificent city!
