Bike the Golden Gate to Sausalito

Crissy Field Picnic Area - Search Nearby - Added by Jennifer Heifferon

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.

This is a lot of fun for older children and adults. There are places to rent cruiser bikes or bring your own! Give yourself enough time to stop along the way for photo ops and sight-seeing. We timed it so that we were taking the ferry back from Sausalito at Sunset, and it was beautiful!

Best not to do it in the summer when it will likely be foggy and cold. Best seasons are spring and autumn.

Beware of biking/walking tourists. They like to jump in front of you ;)
