An adventuresome ride south from Alameda through the Oakland Airport and San Leandro marina. There's interesting sights, several bridges, lots of airplanes, and it's mostly bike friendly for a 5th grader. We did 22 miles out and back and since this is the Bay Trail you can easily lengthen or shorten the trip.Today we drive to the ride, taking 880-S to High St exit. Go straight down the ramp then take the second right onto High Street, the first right doubles back onto Alameda Avenue.
We turned around at the end of the paved section (about 2 miles from gate). We could have continued south on dirt trails all the way to San Mateo bridge and onto the BART station in Hayward but we left that for another day. We rode into the typical strong afternoon headwinds on the way back north.
Rails still to come for the train connecting Coliseum BART station to the airport.
