About this San Francisco, California tour
There are many ways to see San Francisco, but the Bay City Bike's Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito Tour is definitely among the most fun. This 8-mile bike ride is ideal for all levels of riders, from novices to experts, and it is also fun for the entire family.
This tour features great equipment and the best guides around. They'll happily share their expert knowledge of Bay Area history with style and wit. They can take pictures of you amid the great scenery. In addition, you'll get a map so you'll always be "in the know."
Perhaps the most remarkable part of your tour will be when you bike 1.7 miles along the Golden Gate Bridge; talk about a bucket list event. The breathtaking views extend from the San Francisco coast to the Marin Headlands. Incidentally, that area is where mountain biking first became a thing. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Marin County bicyclists loved riding in the area, but they needed bikes that could handle the mountains. So they started modifying their bikes to fit the local terrain and, voila, the mountain bike was born.
You'll conclude your tour in the charming city of Sausalito where you can enjoy the many art galleries, shops, and restaurants. Depending on your mood, you can take the ferry back to San Francisco with your included ferry ticket, or keep the bike all day until closing hours and do some exploring on your own. No special skills required here just a sense of wonder.
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Otis Redding became a star thanks to his performance at the 1967 Bay Area Monterey Pop Festival. That year, he and his band lived on a houseboat in Sausalito, where he wrote (Sitting on) the Dock of the Bay. There is a dispute as to exactly which dock of the bay Redding was staying at, but nobody disputes the majesty of the song. This No. 1 hit, featuring Redding's singing and whistling is one of the most beloved songs of the 1960s.
