Full description
Bike the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and Tiburon. The most popular route will begin at Fisherman’s Wharf by the Powell/ Hyde cable car turnaround. Cruise along the car free national park bike path on a mostly flat bike ride through the Aquatic Park, Fort Mason, the marina and Presidio National Park to the base of the bridge, where historic Fort Point is located. You’ll cross the bridge on the sidewalk with stunning views of the city and bay. Then just a 10 minute downhill ride will take you into the charming bayside town of Sausalito. Once there, most people choose to grab a bite to eat, relax, shop and enjoy Sausalito’s famously wonderful weather. From there, the ride will only get better. Cruise by a funky houseboat community through the marshlands and into historic Old Mill Park in Mill Valley, where you will be able to see California’s famous Redwood trees at the base of Mount Tamalpais. Continue along a gorgeous waterfront bike path to the quaint fishing town of Tiburon, where you’ll find more great bayside restaurants and shops. From Tiburon or Sausalito, you will be able to hop on the ferry with your bike and come right back to San Francisco.

Bikes were fine. Self-guided is a bit exaggerated: you got a bike and a movie and that was the case. But it wasn't difficult so it worked out fine. It is good to know that the last raffle is completely full (and you will be there in time to come along) and will arrive at a different place. Which is further from the rental and therefore you actually arrive after closing time. But they will wait for you without any problems.

They were very helpful and gave us great suggestions on where to bike. We loved the option to drop the bikes off on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge and take the ferry back. That was awesome!
