Starting from our bike shop on Lombard Street, you will first head north to the Marina Blvd, then head west to the Golden Gate Bridge though the Marina Green and Crissy Field on a flat, paved bike path. Make sure to stop by the Palace of Fine Arts, and take a break at the Warming Hut Cafe near Fort Point before going uphill to the Golden Gate Bridge. The bridge is less than 2 miles long. Use the East side bike path before 3:30 pm during weekdays, and use the west side bike path after 3:30 pm during weekdays or all day during weekends.
If you are ready for an adventure, ride to the Golden Gate Park and visit Japanese Tea Garden, de Young Museum, CA Academy of Sciences, Conservatory of Flowers, Ocean Beach, and more! Don''t forget the hippie area near the park on Haight Ashbury, and the Painted Ladies near Alamo Square. This ride can take half a day to one whole day depending on the stops you make, so be prepared for an adventure!
Continue 2 miles downhill after the Golden Gate Bridge, you will find the world's famous waterfront town - Sausalito. Enjoy this small town full of shops and restaurants. When it's time to leave, take a ferry back to San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf or ferry building! From there, you can simply ride along the coast back to our bike shop on Lombard street. Ferry tickets can be purchased directly at the Sausalito ferry terminal. Of course, you can also ride back, making it a total of 15 miles round trip bike ride!
