Bikes, bay views, history rule on Angel Island
Now is a good time to get on a bike. A few strokes of the pedals and turns of the wheels, and the memories come back. Suddenly, you're 10 years old again. The best place to experience this phenomenon in the Bay Area is Angel Island, where you get a mix of adventure, spectacular views, history and a 5.5-mile ride with plenty of stopping points.
