Moderate = you should be comfortable riding a bike. Our bikes are easy to ride and we give you plenty of time to get comfortable before departing.
Notes about this tour and why it’s easy-moderate: the ride requires that you navigate several hills, some of which are steeper. Our bikes are well suited and safe for this terrain. Your expert local guide will take you on quiet back roads and official bike routes the entire time, but you will have to share the road with cars at times.
Safety: We take safety seriously. There is an extensive pre-ride safety briefing and we provide the best quality helmets. See our safety page for more detailed information.
Questions: If you have any questions about the difficulty of this tour or if it’s right for you, please contact us, we’re happy to help!
If you are staying locally, we recommend getting dropped off here via taxi, Lyft, or Uber since it’s super easy. We’re also about a 25 minute walk from Union Square hotels.
If you do drive, there is free parking 2 blocks away at Costco. Here are directions to the lot.
The short answer is yes, very safe. Our tours leverage the experience of nearly 20 years of daily biking in San Francisco. Your expert local guide will lead you on the safest, most scenic bike routes and backroads in SF, and all of our tours ride at least 95% in official bike lanes. For more safety info, see our safety page.
We’re curious travellers and appreciate authentic, high-quality local experiences, shared by passionate and knowledgeable locals. We deliver that on every bike tour we give, so you feel like your riding along with a good friend who knows all the best routes and places to explore by bike. You’ll experience the real San Francisco with cool longtime locals who are immersed in the city’s bike culture, food, and history. You’ll also get the most interesting perspectives on must-see landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge and Golden Gate Park, while exploring the hidden gems beloved by locals.
In short, you’ll get an wholly authentic, non-touristy experience that provides a greater depth, better biking, and a complete local adventure that exceeds what you could do on your own.
We custom build all our electric bikes in house, using the best parts around using steel frames from Trek and Specialized. We promise they’ll be the best bike tour bikes you’ve ever ridden, designed just for the special riding we have here in SF. They feature comfortable upright riding positions, extra safe brakes, wide tires, cushy saddles, and baskets so you can carry your stuff.
The bikes are very easy to ride and super fun. If you’ve never ridden an electric bike (like most of our guests), just know they function and feel a lot like a normal bike and you’ll get the hang of them in just a minute. The electric bike also allows you to choose how easy the ride is, so you can conquer the steepest SF hills (and enjoy the best views) without breaking a sweat.
Our electric tours are for age 13+. Our insurance company sets this minimum age and it’s standard throughout SF :).
Have kids younger than 13?
We do offer custom tours for families on traditional bikes. Just contact us and we’re happy to chat about details and set something up ideal for you.
