Heart of San Francisco Culture: a unique Bike and Food Tour

Dandyhorse SF Francisco Bike Tours Rental

What You'll Get

Go deep in San Francisco’s hippest and oldest hoods and get an insider’s perspective from longtime Mission resident guides. The tour begins at in El Corazon de la Misione (Heart of the Mission) just off 24th Street, where the rich Latino culture has given rise to the greatest density of murals and taquerias in the city.

We’ll trace the origins of SF to Mission Dolores, the city’s oldest building, also riding past some of San Francisco’s oldest and most historic residences, before visiting one of its most beloved public spaces, Dolores Park, for panoramic views of the city. We’ll take quiet side streets up to the historic Castro Theater, where we’ll get a peek at the city’s most iconic movie palace. Then we’ll explore the center of neighborhood’s foodie culture at the famous Tartine Bakery and Bi-Rite Market before enjoying a gourmet picnic lunch at Dolores Park.

After lunch we’ll explore the Mission art scene—its grand, full-building murals, street art alleyways, and the celebrated Heath Ceramic factory and gallery.  We’ll finish this neighborhood extravaganza with a choose-your-own Mission treat: an ice coffee from Blue Bottle or a cone from Humphry Slocombe ice cream.


  • You want an in-depth introduction to the culture of San Francisco's most culturally diverse and vibrant neighborhoods 
  • You want to see famous historical landmarks and lesser known neighborhood sights
  • You can ride a bike 10 miles (16 km) at a relaxed pace and pedal up a few slight hills (we bike around the big ones).  And not to worry – we make regular stops to take in the sights, so your legs (and glutes!) get a chance to relax
