Get a standard SF to Sausalito bike tour with all day rental and optional e-bike upgrade.
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.

The tour guide was the best guide in the universe. It was a good trip. It will be great if the beginning of the tour is more organized and guided and enough time is bestowed for the pre trip preparartion.

Really enjoyed trip. You need to be reasonably fit. Arrived in Sausalito but bit disappointing as electric had been off for 4 days due to the fires. All shops, bars banks closed as no credit card machines or atm’s. couldn’t even get a ticket for ferry hence when we landed everyone had to queue at ticket machine so took about an hr to get out. Although nobody’s fault, we should have been warned of the power outage and given the chance to cancel .

Great day out and hassle free. We got the e-bikes and had no equipment challenges. pick up and drop off were no problem and our guide Steve maintained an easy pace and was very knowledgeable and helpful. We were lucky in that we had a small group in our tour as some of the bigger tour groups we saw were total chaos.

what a great way to get the best views of not only San Fran's famous bridge but of the city in general. Informative and inciteful this tour could be done by people with a minimal fitness base (like myself) but still be enjoyable at the same time. take plenty of water though, you're going to need it. Good quality bikes and a great guide also. A small tip is to leave plenty of time at Sausalito to wander before catching a mid Afternoon ferry.

I really enjoyed biking the Golden Gate Bridge. Adam was our tour guide and did a great job keeping us together. He was very knowledgeable about everything San Francisco. Our group size however was quite large, 20 people at least. And when the first person doesn’t change gears before going up a hill, we all needed to walk our bikes bc we had no momentum, which was due to the large group. My son also had a rough ride too compared to his Trek at home. Otherwise we saw things we never would have seen before and I appreciate the experience.

You will definitely be sore by the end and having fun while doing it. You will also learn a lot. Bring layers.
