From Fisherman’s Wharf, you can follow a popular (mostly flat) route, along the waterfront and through Fort Mason, the Marina, the Presidio and historic Fort Point. Pedal onto the Golden Gate Bridge to enjoy sweeping views of the city skyline, spotting Alcatraz Island perched amidst the San Francisco Bay. On the other side of the bridge, explore the charming bayside town of Sausalito or Tiburon, or check out Mill Valley to see California’s famous redwood trees at the base of Mt Tamalpais. Return to San Francisco via the Golden Gate Bridge or take the scenic ferry back to continue your 2-wheel exploring.
If you depart from Union Square, you can head east to the Embarcadero past the Transamerica Pyramid and Coit Tower, hooking up with the bike path at Fisherman’s Wharf that leads to the Golden Gate Bridge. Or venture west on bike-friendly Market Street over to ‘The Wiggle,’ a flat route to Golden Gate Park that’s popular with local cyclists. On the way, take a snapshot of the iconic Victorian ‘Painted Ladies’ at Alamo Square, then detour over to the Haight-Ashbury district to say hello to the hippies. Cruise through Golden Gate Park and over to Ocean Beach for amazing views of the Pacific Ocean.
