Alcatraz & San Francisco Sunset

Alcatraz & the California Sunset Tour

Enjoy a radiant, California sunset tour on a bike after your tour on the Alcatraz Island!

Follow our recipe for the perfect San Francisco day with a morning Alcatraz tour and sunset ride over the Golden Gate Bridge. As the sun starts to dip, we’ll hug the coast past the famous San Francisco piers, Crissy Field and Fort Point on our way to the bridge – the city’s most loved landmark. You’ll see the city at its best, as the sunset paints the skyline with picture-perfect shades of purple, orange and pink. Snap photos along the bridge as we pedal the West/Ocean side, which is open strictly to cyclists at this time of the day. We’ll sum up the perfect sunset with the “road less traveled,” biking past 17th century monuments and sites before wrapping up a magical tour.
