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.

Most of the elevation gain is done early in the tour. It is slightly longer than the Heart of the City but doesn’t feel much more difficult.

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.
