What You Can Expect

San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge Bike Tour

Riding Across the Golden Gate Bridge

Your 3-hour Golden Gate Bridge bike tour starts at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, where you’ll meet your guide. Then take off along a mostly flat route that follows the waterfront of San Francisco Bay.

Pedal past sights like Aquatic Park Cove, part of San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park, and enjoy views of Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge. Then continue past Fort Mason Center, a National Historic Landmark; Marina Green, where beautiful homes face the water; the Palace of Fine Arts, built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition; and Crissy Field, part of Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

When you arrive at Fort Point, at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge, take advantage of a great photo op of the iconic red towers before crossing the bridge’s 1.7-mile (2.7-km) span, which ends at Vista Point, another panoramic viewpoint for photos of the bay and city skyline. Complete the last stretch of your bike tour into Sausalito, a small, upscale town known for its picturesque waterfront scenery.

From Sausalito, you will be on your own to continue exploring however you wish. Continue biking around the area, using your provided map to perhaps conquer the hills of the Marin Headlands or see more of San Francisco, such as the Presidio or Ocean Beach; refuel with food and drinks at one of Sausalito’s many restaurants (own expense); and return to the city at your leisure, either by biking back across the bridge or taking the ferry from Sausalito with your bike (ferry tickets are at your own expense).

Your bike tour includes full-day bike rental, so you can use your bike independently before and/or after your guided tour. Select a departure time for your tour when booking.

One of the best experiences on our trip to San Francisco!
My older teens loved the biking trip across the Golden Gate bridge which included tours past the Ghirardelli chocolate factory, homes in posh SF, and the Arts Palace.
We had a great lunch in Sausalito after the tour. And lots of fun on the ferry trip back into SF.
This was a great way to experience San Francisco!

The tour was incredible! My husband and I did this tour on our honeymoon on July 1st. Our tour guide was awesome. He was informative and also took pictures for us and the other people on the tour. Riding across the Golden Gate Bridge will be a memory we will keep forever!

Fantastic four at fantastic value. Steven was a great guide. Can and #39;t believe we actually ride across the golden gate bridge. Such a great journey. Great workout for the athletic family. Three challenging hills that you can walk your bike up if needed but I recommnd powering through.

Great way to see the Golden Gate Bridge upfront and an absulutely stunning view of San Francisco. Dinner in Sausalito was great as well. Be aware iif you are taking the ferry that at the end of the day the lines are long and will need to wait at least a half hour to board. Don and #39;t miss this op!

Fantastic experience. A couple of hills but overall a relaxed ride. Tour guide Jimmy was awesome had a true love for San Fran which was evident throughout the tour. Don't forget sun screen and bridge pedestrian traffic is high so it allows for a casual experience.
