We trace a route along the shores of San Francisco Bay, over the Golden Gate Bridge and through the picturesque towns of Marin Country... more » to take you on a tour you'll never forget.
Beyond the attractions of San Francisco, you'll also get to experience the towns of Sausalito and Tiburon which are famed equally for their restaurants and shopping opportunities.
Pedal down long flat stretches of bike trail and admire the views across the wetlands, the towering mountain of Mount Tamalpais and the dramatic misty skyline of San Francisco.
