Since cheetah-shoes don't yet exist, and a tree stump with a saddle on it is hopelessly immobile, bicycles remain the best way to tour a city. See the sights in two-wheeled fashion with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a guided bike tour for two (a $110 value) from Bay City Bike, a professional bike-rental company located in Fisherman's Wharf. Every day at 10 a.m., enthusiastic guides lead tours along the waterfront before venturing across the Golden Gate Bridge and coasting down to Sausalito for a journey that takes up to three hours. Once the excursion's over, customers can continue their cycling and sightseeing by themselves for the rest of the day, exploring the road to Tiburon or gliding on trails through the gargoyle-infested Muir Woods (click here to view the rides map). With this Groupon, buy one burger at Hard Rock Café at Fisherman’s Wharf and get one free (one per table, $15).
Ferry ticket is not included with this Groupon.
- The staff was extremely nice and friendly. They explained their maps based on where we wanted to go, and demonstrated everything else we needed to know. – Erin N., Yelp
- It was really incredible riding a bike across the bridge. We got some good photos, and ate good Italian in Sausalito. It was just a great day. – nathan78, Citysearch
Bay City Bike
Bay City Bike serves as the brick-and-mortar trailhead for bikers looking to cruise through the scenic streets and notable sites of San Francisco and the Bay Area. 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, Golden Gate Park, Haight Ashbury, 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.
