What you'll do

An expertly guided E-bike ride on the Western side. Explore Golden Gate Park to the Golden Gate Bridge, the clean, green nature side of the city that locals treasure and visitors often miss. Get on a high-quality e-bike (those public bikes can't handle our hills!) at the edge of Golden Gate Park and explore with a guide who knows every path and trail, from the Park to the Presidio. You’ll breeze past ornate buildings & artsy museums. Learn how a vast, verdant landscape was grafted on to wind swept sand– the Outside Lands! We'll cross town to the Presidio, with a special stop on the way. Experience the oldest inhabited part of San Francisco. Stop at the Spire & the Overlook then out to the Pacific side to enjoy the sweeping views as we approach the bridge. Our pedal assisted bikes glide us up to the bridge and I’ll share some bridge stories and history. Next we ride to the middle to touch the cables of the most famous bridge in the world! After getting our fill of the amazing view, we head back to the city for a roll along the grand, gorgeous & historic Crissy Field. Next stop is the site of the 1915 World’s Fair and the Palace of Fine Arts. We'll make some "local secret" stops on our way back to the Haight, then finish in Cole Valley, across from the word famous "Ice Cream Bar".
Other things to note
Bikes include helmet & lock. We ride on city streets for part of the ride, so be ready for riding with cars. We will be on our bikes for about 2 hours with some up and down riding.

Where you'll be

I'm an authority on the mysteries of Golden Gate Park, and we'll learn a few of these as we start out. I also lead tours on the art of Andy Goldsworthy, and we'll stop by the Spire, his work in the Presidio. Our trip across the bridge will include history, personal stories and special stops to explore nature and changing elements of the bay. I have dozens of stories about the bay and bridge, & more from my work for the Historic Maritime Museum.

John was excellent. I was lucky that I got a private tour with him, he really knows the city and likes telling stories about it. When I told him I like cooking he took me to a local market where I tried my first Kimchi. I got to see some nice views, gained a bit of insight in the history of the town and going across Golden Gate bridge was amazing, got to see some dolphins and nice views there too. I'd highly recommend doing this trip.

John, was a real sport and loves San Francisco. We met at the cafe and we were running a bit late which was not an issue for John. We were all provided with great electric bikes and helmets and then given brief details of the day. A couple of short rides to make sure we were all ok and off we went, stopping to gain information from John on many features. Great ride through the hills,amazing croissant eaten at a very picturesque spot. Rode halfway along the windy golden gate bridge and returned via military base and the park. A tremendous 3 hour cylcle with no achee and pains at the end of it. We would thoroughly reccomend this to anyone who is able to ride bike. Thanks John

One of the best ways to explore the city!! John was exceptional, and the bike ride was fun, enjoyable and highly informative. He provided us with bottled water, and a delicious croissant. We definitely recommend getting the electric bikes they were easy to use and allowed us to get up the hills easily.
