Bike the bridge, San Francisco

Construction of the bridge took four and one-half years and the work began on January 5, 1933. The resulting span has been much admired for its magnitude and its graceful beauty.

Fort Point — at the south end of the bridge — was designated a National Historic Monument October 16, 1970. Fort Point was built out of brick in 1853–1861 at the begining of the Civil War.
