Exercise, beers, and a ferry ride. Views from the bridge are breathtaking. Duration: 3-4 hours.

Riding your bike across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, and then enjoying some drinks on the back deck at Sam's, is a great way to spend a nice day. The views along the way are simply breathtaking. After your ride and a day of fun in Sausalito, you can return to San Francisco by ferry. It's about 8 miles from Crissy Field to Sam's. The trip usually takes 3 to 4 hours.

Worth the trip

My first bike ride and i loved it! trail is easy to follow. Only difficult parts are 1 semi steep hill to the bridge and biking back to return the bike through busy streets. (I rented bike) Sausalito is a beautiful small town with delicious food, kind people and you can ferry back and enjoy a boat ride!

Iconic but Stressful

Hopping across the Golden Gate Bridge is a rite of passage for most tourists, who either walk or cycle over this 80-year-old structure fairly tentatively. For good reason - cross winds, fog and loud traffic make for a tough ride. Locals whistle at twice the speed through the same 10ft-wide channel, so though crossing the Bridge is a must, it should also be taken on with the calmest temperament.

Fun SF Outing!

Fun way to get some exercise and experience the Golden Gate. And I highly recommend taking the ferry back.
