Pedal past sights like Aquatic Park Cove, part of San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park, and enjoy views of Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge. Then continue past Fort Mason Center, a National Historic Landmark; Marina Green, where beautiful homes face the water; the Palace of Fine Arts, built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition; and Crissy Field, part of Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

When you arrive at Fort Point, at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge, take advantage of a great photo op of the iconic red towers before crossing the bridge’s 1.7-mile (2.7-km) span, which ends at Vista Point, another panoramic viewpoint for photos of the bay and city skyline. Complete the last stretch of your bike tour into Sausalito, a small, upscale town known for its picturesque waterfront scenery.

From Sausalito, you will be on your own to continue exploring however you wish. Continue biking around the area, using your provided map to perhaps conquer the hills of the Marin Headlands or see more of San Francisco, such as the Presidio or Ocean Beach; refuel with food and drinks at one of Sausalito’s many restaurants (own expense); and return to the city at your leisure, either by biking back across the bridge or taking the ferry from Sausalito with your bike (ferry tickets are at your own expense).

Eli was great tour guide. Electric bikes are way to go. Beautiful ride over Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito. Had lunch and spent afternoon there before taking ferry back to SF. Would highly recommend.

You’re better off walking San Francisco

Not a beginners tour as they claim. You need to be in shape and experienced to get through. Faulty helmets (even tour guide even acknowledged poor quality), passive aggressive tour guide, unsafe bikes with slippery pedals. Proceeded to bike in the rain when it wasn’t safe. Best part of the tour was dropping off my bike in Sausalito for an additional cost. Avoid tour.

This is a great tour and Adam, our guide, is the one who helped make it so great! Adam is so knowledgeable and shares details about San Francisco along with his passion for the city. We take bike tours in every new city we visit and it's a perfect way to acquaint yourself with your surroundings. When you book a tour with Bay City Bikes make sure you request Adam as your Tour Guide!!!

The bike ride was terrific. Crossing the Golden Gate was amazing and we loved biking down to Sausalito. The tour ends there but we decided to have lunch and then bike back. The electric assist bikes made it easy. Great tour.

Somewhat disappointing
Mark_C
, Sep 2021
Riding a bike through a section of San Francisco and across the Golden Gate Bridge was certainly scenic and enjoyable but this tour was somewhat disappointing. The equipment wasn't great; my bike had to be replaced a mile in because the gears weren't working properly and another member of the group's bike also broke down. The tour took much longer than it needed to; we stopped at least four times in the nine-mile trip and we lingered too long at those stops, one of them being more than 20 minutes, and members of the group were getting restless. Then, we lost half the group on the Golden Gate Bridge when they got stopped by bridge workers due to some issue that arose, but we didn't know it until the rest of the group had crossed the bridge. That was bad and just shouldn't have happened; there should have been two tour guides, one in front and one in the back.

We took 7 toura - walking, bus, etc. - but hands down the best was this bike tour. Judy, a SF native, did a great job. It was nice to get some exercise in and learn some local history. Outstanding!

Such a great tour. We rented the electric bikes which made it very easy to ride back on our own instead of taking the ferry. Our tour Eli was excellent and full of knowledge about the history of San Francisco.
