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.

Overall rating: 

Chill, enjoy the tourists, the wind, the hill: steep climbs up to the bridge so take the ferry back. Forgot your bike? plenty of places to rent

You can either bike back from Sausalito or bike further down to Tiburon and take ferry (or bike) back to San Francisco.

Done this many times. This is my #1 favorite thing to do when friends and family visit. It isn't too strenuous, and you get amazing views of SF, with the option of taking a ferry back.
