Explore the streets of San Francisco on two wheels. This easy guided bike tour takes you to many of the city’s most notable neighborhoods and attractions. Pedal past the Transamerica Pyramid and through bustling North Beach; peruse the Mission and Castro districts and the Haight-Asbury, home of 1960s hippie counterculture; and visit popular sites such as Fisherman’s Wharf and AT&T Park. Your guide will provide information and history on local landmarks en route, and there’s also a stop for lunch (added cost). While comfortable mountain bikes are the norm, electric bike upgrades are also available. At the end of the tour there’s even time to do your own exploring.

San Francisco Urban Bike Tour

Sights of San Francisco Guided Bike Tour

Your starting point is Fisherman’s Wharf, where you’ll pick up your bike (and if you like, upgrade to an electric bicycle) as well as all safety equipment. Then it’s off to explore San Francisco! Don’t worry about the hills—your savvy guide is well-versed in all of the flattest routes, as well as some hidden nooks known only to locals.
 
While it may be foggy and cool in one neighborhood, it may be sunny and warm in the next, so dressing in layers is your best option. The tour includes 10 photo stops, which double as informational stops where your guide will shares facts, stories and history on local sights. Food and drink breaks along the way include an optional lunch at a roaming pod of gourmet food trucks, and a coffee and tea break in the Haight (all food and drinks are at your own expense).

On this four-hour tour, you’ll wind your way through North Beach alleyways and past the Transamerica Pyramid before coming upon the former Barbary Coast, once a den of concert saloons, dance halls, and brothels. Then you’ll make your way around AT&T ballpark and pedal past San Francisco’s colorful Victorian and Edwardian homes, including Alamo Square’s famous “Painted Ladies.”

You’ll continue through San Francisco's Latino Mission District (also a hub of DIY culture), Civic Center—home to San Francisco City Hall—and the colorful Castro and Haight-Ashbury neighborhoods, then on through the newer NOPA (North of the Panhandle) neighborhood and Polk Gulch, with its bevy of bars and restaurants. The route will take you past some incredible street art, and the ride’s leisurely pace helps provide an authentic feel of each distinct area.

Your guided bicycling adventure concludes at Aquatic Park in Fisherman’s Wharf, but this doesn’t necessary mean you’re done cycling. The bicycle is yours to use for the rest of the day.

We had a fantastic time on this bike tour! We felt like locals cruising through the streets of San Francisco, and learned a lot about all the different neighborhoods from our guide, who was super friendly. The city is very bike friendly, and picking up/dropping the bikes off was a breeze. My highlights were seeing the murals in the Mission District, stopping at a popular local coffee joint, and spending time in the Haight. Highly recommended!

We had a great time. What a wonderful way to see the city. It is a little bit of a workout so don't plan a bunch of other physical activities that day, you will be exhausted. We enjoyed our tour of the city street, what a unique way to see San Francisco!!!
