Bike Over the Bridge

By Viator, November 2014

4.5 104 Reviews | Add your review

You’d think in a city with so many hills that biking wouldn’t be the norm, but in San Francisco, it’s often the preferred method. Being as it is, there are many bike rental shops available, and a bike can be had quite reasonably and at a moment’s notice. A relatively short jaunt from the city, this beautiful and life-affirming bike ride offers participants the best views of the city, the Golden Gate, and of the little seaside town of Sausalito – all in about a half-day’s ride.

The best course of action would be to rent a bike in, say, the Fisherman’s Wharf area, see the sights, smell the fish, hear the barking sea lions, then head up to enter onto the Golden Gate. Pull-over and take pictures of the Golden Gate behind you on the turnoff just on the other side of the bridge, then head down into Sausalito and wile away the afternoon sipping cocktails and munching some nosh before taking the ferry back to SF. Not a bad day, eh? Some might call it ideal….
Insider tip? Choose to do this excursion on a weekend. The Golden Gate, as beautiful as it is, is a commuter bridge after all, and dodging the biking commuters, the joggers, the tourists, on a weekday, can be something of a trick. The weekends are much less crowded and typically more enjoyable.
