What you'll do

Take a guided cycling trip through San Francisco, ending with a view of the ocean after riding through Golden Gate Park. Grab a caffeine hit at some of the city’s finest coffee shops along the way, and stop off at cool sights for photo ops. The tour can finish with a view of the ocean (~6 miles), or I can help you get back to Hayes Valley (~12 miles). We’ll be cycling on San Francisco’s famous 'Wiggle’, a specially designed route that avoids the city’s meanest hills, so the tour is perfect for inexperienced riders ready for a bit of adventure, and cycling pros alike.

Fab & Mandy

Mandy: Even though I learned how to ride a bike as a kid, it was Portland, Oregon that got me on a bike, and my love of the Bay Area is what *really* got me to ride. I love exploring the bay by bike, and share Fab's love of pastries and coffee! Fab: I'm a cycling-mad Frenchman who works in growth marketing for Airbnb and loves to ride through San Francisco, even up it's many hills! I've lived in Paris, London and Berlin, speak French, English and Spanish, and have cycled more miles than I've eaten croissants, almost... (Starting in April 2018, this tour is hosted by Mandy without Fab.)

Where you'll be

We will meet on CityRide Bike Rentals in Hayes valley. We can grab some espresso at Blue Bottle's hidden kiosk café before we go and grab a photo at an epic mural. Then we'll head off on a leisurely ride along The Wiggle, stopping at Flywheel Coffee if we're not sufficiently caffeinated, and we will end our trip in Ocean Beach (6mi). From there I can either leave you to explore or we can make our way back (12mi) stopping by Black Sands Brewing.
