INFO: 

For the first time in history, pedestrians and cyclists have the chance to travel across the new East Span of the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge.

Two-thirds of the Bay Bridge Trail opened to the public on September 3, 2013, allowing visitors to traverse just past the span’s 525-foot signature tower. Before the pathway can be extended the 2.2 miles between Oakland and Yerba Buena Island, contractors must dismantle a portion of the original bridge that sits in the way.

Two access points provide a direct route to the bicycle and pedestrian path: One at Shellmound Street in Emeryville, just outside the IKEA store, and another at the corner of Maritime Street and Burma Road in Oakland.

It’s not the Golden Gate, but still a beautiful bridge and unique perspective of the bay. Being accustomed to ride from city to north bay, felt funny to hit a turn around point yet I trust some day the full path will be constructed. In my lifetime hopefully? 🙂 :
