Had a great experience and day with our bikes and ferry ride ticket. It was easy to find, the staff was great and pumped up our tires. We biked along the coast, north to the Golden Gate bridge and over into Sausilito for lunch and shopping. Perfect day. The ferry was fun and easy as well.

This is really the best experience/must have experience. I enjoyed the views all along the way and personally I wish I gave this ride more time because of the number of times I stopped on the way. So I would say give it about 2-3 hours if you're gonna stop for pictures, food and such (I hope you do). Sausalito seemed like a really pretty town but we didn't get to stop and explore. The most uncomfortable part of this trip was once the biking trail was done, we had to ride our bikes through the roads with cars speeding at 60. I wasn't aware/looking forward to that. A fellow more experienced biker helped us out. If not, we would've felt pretty lost. We got on the Ferry at Sunset and it was beautiful.

I booked this activity with my mom who was visiting the Bay Area and really wanted to go across the bridge. The staff were friendly and efficient, and the map explanation was easy to understand. The only thing I would point out is the pick up location was much farther from the bridge than we anticipated. By the time we got there we were exhausted. The ferry ticket back was a huge plus! No waiting in line, and we biked right up to the ferry loading dock. Downtown Sausalito was beautiful, but I would recommmebd planning more time in between the legs of your journey if you want to hang out there. They do offer paid bike parking so you don’t have to worry about your rented bike, and you can also turn it in on that side. Another thing to remember is even though it’s overcast quite often, the sun is still there. Please remember when biking that the back of your hands are exposed the whole time and apply sunscreen accordingly (personal experience). Overall, we had a fantastic time!
