Tour FAQs

What should I bring with me? What should I wear?

San Francisco is known for its micro-climates, and it can get pretty windy and cold along the waterfront and when going over the Golden Gate Bridge. We recommend wearing comfortable layered clothing, a jacket, and athletic shoes. Our bikes come equipped with a tour bag to hold your personal belongings, as well as a rear rack with a bungee to hold a backpack, jacket, or item(s). Please note: we do not have storage at our stores, so only bring what you can take with you on your bike.

I’m not an athlete, do you think I can still bike the Golden Gate Bridge?

Yes – this is an easy to moderate ride that is mostly flat. The ride is on dedicated bike paths, away from heavy traffic, most of the time. You can customize your ride by utilizing the various gears, ride at your own pace, and make as many stops as you’d like. You can even get off and walk if you ever feel uncomfortable. We have riders of all ages and abilities ride over the Golden Gate Bridge. You do not need to be a pro-athlete at all.

What do I do with the bike once in Sausalito? Is there a place to return there?

We are one of the few rental companies who have partnered with Sausalito Bike Return. They will take your bike and return it to us, leaving you to freely explore Sausalito, and avoid the ferry bike line which can be as long as 2+ hours.If you decide to return by ferry, however, you can lock up your bike at the ferry terminal while you explore the town.

My child can ride a bike just fine, but I’m not sure he’ll make it all the way to Sausalito. What do you suggest?

A tandem bicycle is perfect for older children who might not be up for going solo just yet. The stronger rider controls the gears, steering and braking from the front seat, while the second rider helps to pedal from behind. The “tag-a-long” is a great option for children just getting a feel for their biking legs; it attaches to the back of an adult bike and allows the child to help with pedaling, or free-wheel if they’re not quite at that stage.

HOW LONG IS THE TOUR?

When biking the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, expect about a 4-hour trip: about 2 hours for riding and 2 hours for sightseeing and the ferry trip back.
