Are there bike paths in the golden gate park? Don't want to share the road with cars.
The paths are not like many bike paths. It is between the sidewalk and a row of parked cars.
Best to come on weekends when certain roads are closed to cars completely.
Where are you hoping tp bike to in the park?
Most of the roads that go through Golden Gate Park are very bike friendly. Cars go slow and you will be riding with many other bike riders and walkers. You can also rent a bike at one of the many bike rental places that surround the park.
What is the best way to get around? Is a car better? Will have kids with us.
A car can be difficult depending on day and time. On the weekends it can be very hard to park near places you'd want to see.
For bike riding, Sundays are best as JFK Drive is closed to auto traffic: https://goldengatepark.com/biking.html
Here's a map of the park: https://goldengatepark.com/map.html
Once you get past Stow Lake in the middle, it's easier to park, but there is less to see.
Again, what are you hoping to see in the park? Most things are walking distance if you only want to swe the museum, Japanese Garden, Stow Lake. The bisons and the windmills are further out. I would only consider a car on the weekdays. There is a shuttle as well.
Depending on the ages and experience of the kids, I would be cautious of the bike lanes in the park. I don't know if Alan has biked in the park with kids, but I have and it is not that safe or bike friendly to me.
You can consider renting a surrey instead so you can all ride together and the grown ups have control.Edited: 30 December 2017, 03:08
