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.

Really enjoyed this adventure. It was a bit strenuous, but well worth it. We took the ferry back to SF. We also hired a cab to take us to Muir Woods from Sauselito since we were already in the area. Met other travelers whom we really enjoyed, even had lunch with them. A very good day.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

This tour had been recommended by a friend who said it was one of the highlights of her recent trip to the Bay Area. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would also highly recommend it to others who are looking for a fun way to get some exercise, do some sightseeing, learn some fun facts, and experience the incredible Golden Gate Bridge. Even though my teenage daughter wasn't initially looking forward to it, this tour ended up being one of her favorite activities! Our tour guide, Robert, was fantastic!

My friend and I loved this tour. The views were beautiful. We opted to have lunch in Sausalito and take the ferry back. The ferry line was very long so look at the schedule and leave some extra time to get back!

Great way to see the City! Our guide, Robert, was great. I chose the electric-assist bike due to back issues--best money ever pent! Nothing like the view from the Bridge. Enjoyed lunch in Sausalito, the ferry ride back. Book this--you'll be glad you did!

Enjoyed our tour via bike. It was raining however, we still went. It was so cool. Easy bikeroad despite 3 hills.
Sun came out once we hit the Golden gate bridge. Enjoyed our tour guide, he was very personably, gave us lots of information as we went along and made sure we were all together. Definitely something to do.

Our guide was fantastic! He was patient and very helpful. He took us to places we wouldn't have gone on our own.
