Cycling in Golden Gate Park

The Dutch Windmill

The Dutch Windmill

In July on my 75th birthday, my husband and I drove to Golden Gate Park, where we parked the car by the Dutch windmill and then rode our bikes up to the De Young Museum to see the Richard Diebenkorn exhibit.  We followed John F. Kennedy Drive up to the museum and then came back to the car by Martin Luther King  Jr. Rd. because this route is easier than riding in the reverse order. JFK Drive is not as uphill as MLK Rd.

On the way up, we made a brief stop at the buffalo enclosure.

We parked our bikes in front of the De Young, where we joined the crowds visiting the Richard Diebenkorn exhibit.

After gliding downhill back to our car, we packed up our Dahon bikes and drove to SF’s other fine arts museum, the Palace of the Legion of Honor. We ate lunch in the café there and then wandered through the permanent collection before our 2 pm admission to the Impressionists on the Water exhibit. What a fine exhibit this is and what a treasure this museum is for the City of San Francisco!
