What to Expect

Meet us at 9am at The Bike Shop (782 Columbus Ave). Before we hit the road we’ll go through some basic safety precautions, ensuring you’re familiar with the electric bike, your helmet and bike lock.

We’ll embark on a 90 minute tour to get you familiar with the area, and see some of our favorite sights on the San Francisco Bay. After that, you are free to continue to explore the city yourself. We’ll help you plan a custom route that includes the spots most important to you. We suggest biking the bridge, grabbing some lunch in beautiful Sausalito, and making your way to other great stops depending on how much time you have.

The afternoon is for you to enjoy the e-bike, we just ask that you please return your bike by 6pm that day. If you have any problems, you can reach us at (415) 932-6993.

Here are the places we will explore:

Golden Gate Bridge

Declared "one of the 10 wonders of the modern world," the Golden Gate Bridge not only one of the most recognized symbols of San Francisco, but one of the most photographed sites in the world. Simply stunning!

Fisherman's Wharf

One of San Francisco's most popular destinations - from beautiful old shipyards, to Boudin's Bakery and the smell of fresh clam chowder, and of course, the sea lions of Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf has it all.

Aquatic Park

Positioned near the end of the Hyde Street Cable Car, Aquatic Park is a National Historic Landmark on the San Francisco Bay. Featuring one of the cleanest beaches in California, be on the lookout for the bold open water swimmers who frequent the area.

Fort Point

Located just beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Point gives you a front row seat to the San Francisco Bay. This former military fortification was used during both the Civil War and World War II.

Marina

A dreamy neighborhood on the edge of the bay, the Marina entices visitors and locals to its boutique-lined streets and hilly green space. Offers unmatched views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Palace of Fine Arts

Inspired by Roman and Greek architecture, the Palace of Fine Arts was originally constructed to celebrate San Francisco's recovery from the 1906 earthquake. Surrounded by a peaceful garden, it is great for photos

After the 90 minute tour, we suggest exploring:

Sausalito

Located just across the Golden Gate Bridge, this artistic enclave has the setting and beauty of a european mediterranean town. It makes for a perfect place to grab lunch.

Marin Headlands

Located just north of San Francisco, Marin Headlands offers an incomparable view of the peninsula. Gaze over the Golden Gate Bridge across the Bay over San Francisco, and be sure to capture your photo!

Golden Gate Park

Clocking in at over 1,000 acres, Golden Gate Park is the largest man-made park in the world. With beautiful Eucalyptus trees, gorgeous gardens and museums that will appeal to all ages (including the De Young and Academy of Sciences).

An electric bike, also known as an e-bike, is a bicycle with a battery and a motor.

Do you have to pedal on an e-bike?

What makes the e-bike great is that you are welcome to pedal normally, or you can use the throttle, located on the right handlebar, to help propel you along. Whether you are in the mood to get some exercise or just want to sit back and relax, the bike empowers you to get up (and down) the hills of San Francisco with ease!

Bottom line: Our e-bikes make for a really easy, enjoyable and exhilarating tour.


What is the weight capacity?

The weight capacity of our e-bikes is 250 pounds.

For your safety, the group’s safety, and the safety of our equipment, all participants MUST be able to confidently ride a bike. If a guest is not riding confidently enough to travel safely on San Francisco streets, we will prohibit that guest from riding.

Our guides are always ready to ride, but if the forecast is showing a strong likelihood of rain on the day of your scheduled ride, it will be up to us to cancel the tour and keep you safe.

If we do have to cancel, we are happy to refund or re-schedule.

If weather conditions are not to your liking, we are happy to refund you at any time.

The Blue and Gold ferry departs downtown Sausalito and drops you off at Pier 41 in Fisherman’s Wharf.

Each ferry runs approximately every hour. We strongly encourage purchasing your ticket when you arrive in Sausalito.

Even when you are riding a bike every day, as we do living in Amsterdam, it is really hard in SF. Riding an e-bike is superb and very easy. They have enormous power uphill.
