Enjoy an easy bike ride before exploring The Rock during your Alcatraz Island & Golden Gate Park Bike Ride!

With your Alcatraz Island & Golden Gate Park Bike Ride tickets, you’ll visit two iconic San Francisco attractions, all in one day.  Discover one of the most popular things to do in San Francisco by enjoying a boat ride in the San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz Island.  And, once you’re there, you can put your headsets for an audio-guided tour.  Once a maximum-security prison for highly dangerous criminals, such as Al Capone, Robert “Birdman” Stroud, and Mickey Cohen, Alcatraz has a rich and fascinating history.  The island also previously served as a lighthouse post, a military garrison, and ground zero for protesting Native Americans who occupied it for 18 months.  You’ll hear all about it during your San Francisco tour, which is why the Alcatraz Island & Golden Gate Park Bike Ride is what to do in San Francisco.

Then, get on two wheels and experience the sights and sounds of the city during your San Francisco vacation!  Your first stop, Golden Gate Park, is more than 1000 acres and incredibly biker-friendly.  Meander through the many bike paths in the park and you’ll see why it’s so popular amongst bikers!  Cycle past the Japanese Tea Garden, catch a sight of the Strawberry Hill, and stop at other points of interest during your San Francisco trip.  Listen in on ghost stories regarding the lady who haunts Stow Lake.  Pedal your way through Ocean Beach and pass by Bison Paddock to see some buffalo before ending your tour.  With so much fresh air and beautiful greenery, it’s one of the best things to do in San Francisco!
