I had so much fun riding my bike around San Francisco the previous day that I came back again today, this time dragging Jackie along. She was a good sport, following me around long past when she would have preferred to quit. We covered about 21mi on bike and about 2mi on foot. Like the previous day, my goal was a bunch of minor PB-only summits that took us to a number of interesting places around the city, most of which I had never visited. Most of the "summits" were located in Lincoln Park in the NW corner of the city overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge. Our route from the Balboa Park BART Station took us through the Sunset District neighborhoods and along the coast via the Great Highway. The roadway has been closed to vehicles during the pandemic, one of a number of city roads that have been temporarily modified to provide more local outdoor exercise routes for local residents. Today's weather was near perfect, no fog and in the 60s all day. With so many things to see and explore, I'm sure we'll be doing this again in the future...

There were a total off 11 PB summits visited, though only one of these (Merced Heights) was added to my database. None of these are found in the LoJ database. To see all 11 summits, visit this PB page.
