Blimp shape with red marking or door on the side?

A friend of mine and I were on an incredible bike ride through a somewhat busy street in the middle of the Presidio Park on our way to the Golden Gate Bridge.

At that moment I was riding by myself, no one around me and my friend ahead of me about 75 yards.

The trees block your view of the bridge and water every now and then, but when the tree line opened up I took full advantage of my chance to get a nice view of the bridge and the bay while still riding.

At that moment I looked to my left to view the bridge and the surrounding hills across the bay, I then saw an object that is hard to explain. At first I thought it was a coast guard helicopter but this object was round and floating still. It was a blimp shape with a slight edge on each side forming kind of a saucer, but it was more blimp like in shape, definitely shiny metal.

The thing that stood out the most was a red marking of some type, looked like a red door on the side of it or something.

I was going really fast on the bike at that moment and the tree line blocked my view of it, yelling for my friend to stop, I explained to him that I had just saw something odd, we headed to a side road to get a view of where I saw it, he thinking I've lost my mind at that moment, and me too, it was gone, of course!

I'm hoping someone has seen what I saw that day and reports something similar because it was floating about the same height as the top of the bridge, and was near the bridge on the east side.
