What You’ll Explore
We created this tour to showcase our wonderful city in about 3 to 3.5 hours. It has a bit of everything: Golden Gate Park, Haight-Ashbury, funky street art in the Mission, Victorian architecture, and a historic “wiggle” route used by the city’s founding missionaries. Most importantly, this tour can be done by almost anyone. We really do avoid the hills. This city changes everyday, so depending on the sunshine and your interests, we may visit some other hidden spots as well.

Neighborhoods visited
Hayes Valley, Civic Center, Mission, Lower Haight, Golden Gate Park, Haight-Ashbury, Nopa, Alamo Square.

$5 discount for students, teachers, and military

Need to Know

  • Prices include bicycle and helmet. Gratuities not included – please consider tipping your guide.
  • Booking for one person? Great – we love solo travelers! Please note we require 2 or more participants to run a tour. If you are the only one booked the day before a tour, we may ask you to move to a different tour or give you a full refund.

Our easiest tour. Casual pace, shorter distance, less elevation gain. However, you are still riding a bike and going up some minor hills.

We take safety very seriously. Our tours take you on San Francisco’s safest bike lanes, bike routes, and quiet streets. We provide safety instructions before each tour. Helmets (provided) are mandatory.
