The cycling tour comes to an end in Sausalito where you’ll have time to enjoy the shops, the many art galleries, and the delicious food.

Awesome tour! Going across the GG bridge was exhilarating. 3 steep hills to climb on way to the bridge. Not a trip for beginners or out of shape people unless you want to walk a lot. Great to be able to take ferry back and keep bike all day. Scott was our guide. Very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend doing this.

We were lucky and great weather for the bike tour, also went on a weekday so the trip across the bridge was much less crowded than I expect it is on a weekend which made things easier. Multiple stops along the way and a patient tour guide also made the bike tour easy going. Check in was efficient, everyone was very friendly and helpful. Check in for the Alcatraz trip couldn’t have been easier. All in all, a great experience, enjoyed by everyone.

Reservations worked well. We upgraded to E-bikes for GGB and went to Sausalito and back on bikes- highly recommend. Bay City Bicycle staff apathetic and not friendly, although we didn’t participate in the tour as we preferred a later reservation. They didn’t offer to help fit helmets, adjust seat height, offer directions. I know enough already but surprised nonetheless. Alcatraz was good. Overall, would recommend and Get your guide organized well
