On This San Francisco Bike Tour, You’ll See:
Crissy field is one of the first stops while you’re on your bike tour of San Francisco. Originally an airfield for the United States Army, this San Francisco landmark opened to the public in 1990, and is enjoyed by locals and tourists each day because of its expansive views of the San Francisco Bay. Crissy Field is a stunning place to ride your bike rental on a flat, hard-packed promenade with iconic views of the Golden Gate Bridge. A beautiful, and much-loved trail winds through Crissy Field between Marina Green and Fort Point. At the west end of Crissy Field, the Warming Hut offers delicious snacks, sandwiches, and drinks — as well as a wide selection of eco-friendly merchandise.
Over 150 years old, Fort Point quietly stands guard at the narrows of the Golden Gate. This strategic defensive point was built during the Gold Rush, but Fort Point never needed to defend itself. It’s a wonder it was still standing there when Joseph Strauss started to plan the Golden Gate Bridge. He liked the old fort’s history and architecture and designed the bridge to arch over it. The most popular thing to do at Fort Point is taking pictures – of the Golden Gate Bridge. You can also go inside the old fort building, and admission is free. Walk to the rooftop and you’ll be just below the bridge. In fact, it seems so close that you could almost reach up and touch it. Your San Francisco bike tour will be both fun and educational!
San Francisco’s most famous landmark opened in 1937 after a four-year struggle against relentless winds, fog, rock and treacherous tides. The Bridge’s official hue is not gold but International Orange. The bridge is actually named for the Golden Gate Strait, the narrow entrance between the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay. Bike across the Golden Gate Bridge with Wheel Fun Rentals’ Guided Tours. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot some rare ships out in the bay, or even a grey whale! A visitor center and gift shop, dubbed the “Bridge Pavilion”, is located on the San Francisco side of the bridge, adjacent to the southeast parking lot. It opened in 2012, in time for the bridge’s 75th anniversary celebration. A cafe, outdoor exhibits, and restroom facilities are located nearby. On the Marin side of the bridge, only accessible from the northbound lanes, is the H. Dana Bower Rest Area and Vista Point.
Just an easy bike ride away, Sausalito can be found by biking across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. Sausalito is where art intersects with industry, a city where people make things with their hands, like the ceramic pottery and tiles that Edith Heath turned into modern icons that now can be found on the tables of roughly two-thirds of the restaurants in the Bay Area. Enjoy outdoor dining and savor the San Francisco Bay view; stroll along the historic Sausalito waterfront indulging in the sights and sounds, or get nautical and sail around the bay. This quaint city is a world-renowned waterfront community full of eclectic boutiques, restaurants, and shops!
Currently, Fort Mason is headquarters for both the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, but was originally used as a defensive point to keep San Francisco safe from potential attacks by the Confederate Army. Paved, accessible trails connect Fort Mason’s upper and lower units. In between, the Great Meadow slopes down from upper Fort Mason to the Marina. These grassy hilltops and hollows are great for picnicking, sunbathing, biking, or sports activities. The meadow also offers wonderful views of San Francisco’s hilly skyline and the Golden Gate Bridge. You don’t want to miss this portion of your San Francisco self-guided bike tour.
Spanish for shark, Tiburon was most likely named for the common appearance of native leopard sharks. See historic Ark Row shops converted from turn-of-the-century boat houses dating back to when the lagoon between the Tiburon peninsula and the neighboring island of Belvedere was filled in. Charming boutiques in buildings of the period line both sides of Main Street, and everything is accessible by bike or on foot. This small, well-off community has plenty of things to do, including upscale shopping, restaurants, and more. Don’t skip this beautiful last stop on your San Francisco bike tour!
