A diverse neighborhood with some of SF’s best food. We’ll stop at Clement Street., the main business district, which is like a 40-block long more diverse Chinatown packed with local goodness.

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.

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!
