A ride over the Golden Gate Bridge is unlike any other. It really doesn’t get much more picturesque: parklands, beaches, views of the city, a descent down to the quaint bayside town of Sausalito all await. And of course, the main event: the ride over California’s most famous landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge: ocean to your left, San Francisco Bay to your right, and the Marin headlands directly ahead.
The tour starts in Fisherman’s Wharf and finishes in Sausalito, on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Once the tour finishes in Sausalito, guests are encouraged to have lunch in Sausalito and bring their bikes on the ferry back to San Francisco. The Blue & Gold Fleet ferry disembarks in Fisherman’s Wharf, about 5 minutes from our starting location. You can use the bikes to explore the rest of the day; bikes just need to be back at the shop before closing time.
Our Golden Gate tour minimizes the hills and uses the gentlest ascents possible. This tour is designed for anyone comfortable on a bike with a modest level of fitness. There are exactly two hills on this tour: (1) a short hill over Fort Mason and (2) the climb up to the bridge. If any of our tour guests prefer to walk up those hills, we’re all for it.
City Bike with 7-8 speeds & upright sitting position. Regular and “step-through” frame styles available. Brands include Public, Specialized, Breezer, and Civia in a variety of colors.
