  • Tour code: 3306ROCK
Ride over the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge on a 3-hour San Francisco bike tour that explores the bay-front city from Fisherman’s Wharf. Pedal a leisurely route to Aquatic Park Cove, Fort Mason Center, the Marina Green and Crissy Field before making your way across the iconic bridge. Stop at Fort Point and Vista Point for photo ops, and hear commentary on the sights from your guide. Select a morning or afternoon departure, and then keep your bike if you’ve got the energy to explore further on your own!
Led by a local guide, this 3-hour San Francisco bike tour is a great sightseeing activity for all ages and biking levels. You’ll follow a mostly flat route along San Francisco Bay’s scenic northern waterfront before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.

Depart in the morning or afternoon from Fisherman’s Wharf, where your guide outfits you with a proper bike, helmet and any necessary equipment for the ride. Then hop on your bicycle and pedal to nearby Aquatic Park Cove, part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.

Cycle down the pier and snap pics of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island before moving on to Fort Mason Center. The buildings of this former US Army post, a National Historic Landmark, are now used as a cultural and educational complex.

From here, pedal up a steep but short path that flattens out toward the Marina Green, located in the Marina District. While you cycle past opulent homes, enjoy a scenic panorama that includes the Palace of Fine Arts, Angel Island and the bridge as your backdrop.

Arriving at Crissy Field, also part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, glimpse shorebirds inside the restored marsh. From Fort Point, gaze up at the red towers of the bridge and prepare to cross the 3.6-mile (5.8-km) route, which follows a wide path for bicycles. You’ll be rewarded on the other side at Vista Point, including views of the city skyline.

At the end of your guided tour you can continue your biking adventure at your own pace for the rest of the day. You'll be provided with a cycle path map to help guide you around San Francisco and nearby coastal areas, including the picturesque town of Sausalito — renowned for its wide selection of restaurants and cafes, perfect for when hunger kicks in.

For a more challenging bike ride, follow the recommended route on the map and head up to the Marin Headlands. If city biking is your forte, use a ferry ticket for your return to San Francisco, where you can follow the map and continue to explore the city. Points of interest include the Presidio, Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach.

What an awesome tour. Great tour guide. I highly recommend being a fast bike rider or at least being able to keep up at the front of the pack because your tour guide might be able to give you more information. I always love being at the front because it almost seems as if it's your own private tour. We really enjoyed our bike ride into Sausalito as well. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone in San Francisco. It's so cool to tell people you rode a bike over the Golden Gate Bridge.

This was the highlight of our trip. Requires energy and some strength but riding over the bridge is remarkable. Also enjoyed our tour guide and the bikes were great.
