What to Expect

Enjoy the sights and sounds of this San Francisco by bike!

After choosing from an amazing array of bicycles (we recommend the chainless Deluxe Infinity Shifting Bike to make those hills a breeze) discover San Francisco's favorite attractions like Fort Point, Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower San Francisco, Marin Headlands, Palace of the Fine Arts, and much more! Ride past museums, historic restaurants, and the National Park Alcatraz Island while narrators give you dazzling insight into San Francisco's rich history.

Our GPS-Guided Audio Bike Tour, which gives you exclusive access to this tour, is included FREE with every bike rental.

I’M NOT AN ATHLETE, DO YOU THINK I CAN STILL BIKE THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE: Yes – this is an easy to moderate ride that is mostly flat. The ride is on dedicated bike paths, away from heavy traffic, most of the time. You can customize your ride by utilizing the various gears, ride at your own pace, and make as many stops as you’d like. You can even get off and walk if you ever feel uncomfortable. We have riders of all ages and abilities ride over the Golden Gate Bridge. You do not need to be a pro-athlete at all.

MY CHILD CAN RIDE A BIKE JUST FINE, BUT I’M NOT SURE HE’LL MAKE IT ALL THE WAY TO SAUSALITO. WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST: A tandem bicycle is perfect for older children who might not be up for going solo just yet. The stronger rider controls the gears, steering and braking from the front seat, while the second rider helps to pedal from behind. The “tag-a-long” is a great option for children just getting a feel for their biking legs; it attaches to the back of an adult bike and allows the child to help with pedaling, or free-wheel if they’re not quite at that stage.

HOW LONG IS THE TOUR: When biking the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, expect about a 4-hour trip: about 2 hours for riding and 2 hours for sightseeing and the ferry trip back.
