    Bike ride to the Golden Bridge, to admire the sunset, then return to San Francisco at night ... bikes that would need to be revised a little more and above all they would have to be fitted with lights, because our return from night in total darkness without light was super dangerous!

    Super fun!!!!

    Very fun way to get to know the city! Our first time at San Francisco so it was perfect. It is a workout so if your just looking for an easy bike ride do self ride but I did love how the guide took us to all these cool places and we got to ride the bike on the Golden Gate Bridge, it was awesome! I love the outdoors and working out so for us it was cool!
