Probably our favorite thing we did in San Francisco- going at our own pace, with everything perfectly mapped made for a delightful ride. We saw many of the classic sights, including the completely beautiful path to the Golden Gate Bridge.  what we loved too were the little neighborhood finds we probably wouldn’t have learned about otherwise- not only on the tour but Nick, the owner of Dandyhorse, gave us dozens of other recs, taking time to draw on a map and describe why he loves those spots. We took several of them and doing so made our trip SO MUCH BETTER. . Thank you Nick!

A tour that we’ll remember and rave about for years to come

Wow. This was a fantastic way of really seeing the neighborhoods of SF. With so many choices of bike tour companies, I did my research and it really paid off. Dandyhorse has a really well planned and thoughtful tours. As you travel through neighborhoods Nick (the owner operator and guide) gives you a feel for the history, the architecture, the food and the people. There were several stops so that you can explore the neighborhood with food samplings from local shops. We had lunch in Alamo Square Park overlooking the famous Painted Ladies. The day went very quickly and yes you can ride in SF. This is a tour that we will be remembering and raving about for years to come.

We’ve done many bike tours both domestically and internationally, and Nick was far and away the best bike tour guide we’ve ever had!!! His passion for San Francisco as well as his knowledge of history and interesting tidbits of information kept us thoroughly entertained throughout the trip. His service is top notch from the expert bike fitting and his careful attention to detail making sure we were all comfortable safe and enjoying ourselves. We had a spectacular dry sunny day so every stop was a wonderful photo opportunity. He was generous with his time his recommendations and willingness to help now and in the future. Highly recommend!!!

Nick is really passionate about San Francisco and has some great tidbits of knowledge about the city. We went to neighbourhoods we would never have been to if we hadn’t been on the tour. The stops along the way were really interesting and the food was great too.  The group size was small (only 6 in ours) so really intimate and the bikes are awesome too. Would absolutely recommend!

I’m a local and I learned so much!

Nick is an amazing host and tour guide. I am a local and I’ve learned so much during this wonderful bike ride than I did all these years. I especially enjoyed all of our food stops.

I’ve visited SF 25x and plenty on this tour was completely new to me

There are plenty of bike tour companies in SF, but nothing like Dandyhorse. It’s the lovingly personal creation of Nick Hormuth, who is both a bike nerd and a San Francisco nerd. Nick is California-earnest and outgoing–conceivably too much for some, but this crusty New Englander at least found him charming. (He used to be a first-grade teacher, which is easy to imagine.) The unique quirks begin with the bikes, which Nick builds himself. They’re benign mechanical Frankensteins with frames, suspensions, tires, handlebars, brakes, and gears mixed and matched from different kinds of machines to create *exactly* the right bikes for touring San Francisco. They continue with the destinations, which include some standard must-sees but also odd corners and shops you’ve never heard of but that Nick thinks (rightly) are really, really cool. I’ve probably visited San Francisco 25 times, and there was plenty on this tour that was completely new to me. While it lasts four or five hours and covers about 15 miles (San Francisco miles, at that) it’s not physically taxing. Total couch potatoes might strain, but Nick has a knack for finding the flattest route between two points and if you do any exercise at all you’ll be just fine. Highly recommended.
