Cross-Country Route 40 Bike Trip - Day 1: San Francisco to Davis, California


Distance: 98.9 miles
Description: The journey begins at the Pacific Ocean and then traverses Golden Gate Park. Afterwards, you will cross the city and eventually pass by the western termini for Route 40 (where Harrison and Bryant Streets cross 10th Street). You will follow Bryan eastward and board the Alameda/Oakland Ferry (the Bay Bridge does not allow pedestrian traffic). In Oakland, you will travel up San Pablo Avenue all the way to the Carquinez Bridge (which has a bike lane). From Vallejo, frontage roads, the original alignment and a few detour back roads lead you into Davis.
