What You’ll Explore
San Francisco covers 49 square miles, and on this tour, you’ll see the best of it. Our longest tour on regular (non-electric) bikes, the 7×7 is filled with historical stories and cultural exploration, with lots of neighborhoods, sights, and city icons mixed in.
Highlights include epic views, (including views of the Golden Gate Bridge), hippy history, a dip into Golden Gate Park, a ride through the Presidio (a national park in the city limits), the bay waterfront, Ferry Building, baseball stadium (go Giants!), houseboats, and sacred street art. Depending on the tour’s start time, we’ll stop for lunch or snacks. Get ready–it’s going to be an epic day!
