From Union Square, take bike-friendly Market Street over to “The Wiggle,” a flat bike route to Golden Gate Park that is very popular with local cyclists. On the way, you’ll pass Alamo Square where you can check out the historic Victorian “Painted Ladies” houses, then detour over to the Haight-Ashbury district to say hello to the hippies and eat at one of the Haight’s many quirky restaurants! Cruise through Golden Gate Park and take in the sights and sounds of one of San Francisco’s greatest treasures. World-class museums, playgrounds, lakes, picnicking spots and trails make this a destination the whole family will truly enjoy! Bike out to Ocean Beach for beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean and Seal Rocks, and make a pit stop at the bison paddock on your way back!
