Biking Across the Golden Gate Bridge

363 Reviews
A unique alternative to driving across, biking over the Golden Gate Bridge is a must-do in San Francisco, offering great views of the bay and seaside towns on the other side. To help you choose the right bike tour for you, here are your options.

Guided Bike Tours
Guided excursions offer an easy route and live commentary on the history, culture, and landmarks of the San Francisco Bay Area. Learn where to find tasty eats, interesting shops, and the best spots for photo ops as you pedal from Fisherman’s Wharf and over the Golden Gate in the company of other travelers from around the world. Depending on the tour you choose, you may even keep your bike rental for a full day so that you can continue on your own after the guided tour.

Independent Bike Rentals
Explore at your own pace with a self-guided tour. Bike rentals typically include a map, a bike lock, and suggested points of interest for your ride, then leave you with the freedom to shape your itinerary along the way. You might bike along the waterfront Embarcadero before heading to the bridge and taking photos of the city from the turnouts along the way. Once you make your way across the bridge to the North Bay, you can grab a bite to eat in the seaside town of Sausalito before deciding whether to ride back to San Francisco or take your bike on the ferry to return by boat (and skip the steep uphill ride back to the Golden Gate Bridge).

Combo Tours
Make the most of your time with tour options that combine a Golden Gate Bridge biking excursion with a visit to another top San Francisco attraction — after your bike ride, cruise to Alcatraz Island to visit the infamous former prison; walk among California’s towering redwood trees at Muir Woods; or browse the waterfront cafes and boutiques in Sausalito.
