San Francisco and its iconic attractions sit on the tip of a relatively small peninsula—it’s not a sprawling city, and great to explore by bike. On this tour, explore the city and surroundings at your own pace with the freedom that comes with traveling by bicycle. Start at Fisherman’s Wharf and head to North Beach, Chinatown, and Haight-Ashbury, or bike across the Golden Gate Bridge.

  • Independent bike tour of San Francisco with full-day rental
  • Explore as much of San Francisco and the surrounding area at your own pace
  • A great way to exercise while on vacation
  • Opt for purchasing a ferry ticket for a return trip from Sausalito
What to Expect
Begin your independent bike tour by picking your bike up at Fisherman’s Wharf for a full-day bike rental. Your bike includes a bell, water cage, bike rack, bungee cord, storage bag, helmet, and lock. Spend a day exploring San Francisco at your own pace. From Fisherman’s Wharf it’s a short ride south to North Beach, and from there to Chinatown and Union Square. Alternately, travel west to Fort Mason, the Presidio, and the Golden Gate Bridge. Where you go is up to you. Since you have a full-day rental, you have enough time to cycle across the Golden Gate Bridge. From there, see the city skyline and Alcatraz Island in the middle of the bay, and head to the charming waterfront town of Sausalito. If you’ve bought ferry tickets from the bike shop, easily board the ferry from Sausalito back to San Francisco. Finish by dropping your bike off at the original pickup point.
