The Angel Island Expedition is a double-counterclockwise perimeter ride around Angel Island on paved and dirt roads. Double-counterclockwise? Yes—one loop on the outer, paved perimeter road, with a detour to an inner, unpaved fire road. Riding counterclockwise keeps the bay on your right. This is an excellent ride for children, as only maintenance vehicles ply Angel Island’s roads and the terrain is relatively gentle. The children should be in good enough condition (and decent enough bike handlers) to pedal up and coast down a few hills. The inner loop can be eliminated to make this an easier outing. The outer, paved loop can, in fact, be ridden on a road bike.
