Union Square–Fisherman’s Wharf–Sausalito & Tiburon Bike Tour (Self-Guided)
From Union Square, take bike-friendly Market Street to the Embarcadero and cruise by the Ferry Building, Exploratorium, historic Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf before hopping on the car-free National Park bike path! This route will take you on a mostly flat ride through Aquatic Park, Fort Mason, the Marina, and Presidio National Park to the base of the bridge, where historic Fort Point is located. You’ll cross the bridge on the sidewalk with stunning views of the city and bay, followed by a 10 minute downhill ride taking you right into the charming bayside town of Sausalito. Once there, most people choose to grab a bite to eat, relax, shop and enjoy Sausalito’s famously wonderful weather.
From there, the ride only gets better...Cruise by a funky houseboat community, through the marshlands and into Old Mill Park in Mill Valley, where you can see California’s famous Redwood trees at the base of Mt. Tamalpais. Continue along a gorgeous waterfront bike path to the quaint fishing town of Tiburon, where you’ll find more great seaside restaurants and shops. From Tiburon or Sausalito, you can hop on the ferry with your bike and come right back to San Francisco!
