Bay City Bike's four locations in Fisherman's Wharf serve as the brick-and-mortar trailheads for bikers looking to cruise through the scenic streets and notable sites of San Francisco and the Bay Area. From each location, cyclists can ask staffers for directions to a number of scenic routes, including a path that crosses the Golden Gate Bridge and crosses into Sausalito, mountain-bike trails through the Marin Headlands, or tours of historic locales such as the Palace of Fine Arts or the famed phone booth known for letting people teleport out of Alcatraz. Those who prefer to explore San Francisco by other modes of transit can sign up with Bay City Bike for tours via Go Cars, Segways, and buses.
