Walking from bridge to bridge

The whole time we’ve lived in San Francisco we’ve thought we’d like to do the walk from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge. This week an initiative started that Xero is taking part in, the Global Corporate Challenge which is a worldwide workplace heath and wellbeing event that companies take part in to get their staff moving – teams of 7 from companies around the world wear a step-counter and count their steps for 16 weeks with the goal of doing 10,000 steps a day. I’ve joined a San Francisco team. So a great opportunity to do this walk and have our steps count for our team.

The walk is 6.1 miles – we caught the bus to the city side of the Golden Gate bridge and walked along the trail from there through Chrissy Field, through the marina and Fort Mason then on a trail up and over to Fisherman’s Wharf and along to the Ferry Building and Bay Bridge. It took 2 hours and about 13,000 steps. It’s a really pleasant walk, sometimes on gravel, sometimes on trails and sometimes on the sidewalk. The only unpleasant part is through Fisherman’s Wharf – so many tourists and smelly crabs!
