Great way to spend your leisure time! Bike was easy to ride and easily blazed past the spandex warriors when going uphill! Also I saw many scenic spots that I never did even know were there!

Great time. Great adventure. Good workout. A little loosey/goosey on safety and training. Would not rate it as "beginning/intermediate". Major inclines and no power... continued

THIS WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE. THE ELECTRIC BIKES ARE GREAT. WE LIVE LOCALLY AND DID IT AS A FAMILY EVENT. EVERYONE HAD A LOT OF FUN. WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

Quotes & Highlights

Check out this cool introduction video to the Electric Bike Tour.

Description

Enjoy a fun Electric Bike Guided Tour across the Golden Gate to Sausalito with return by Ferry. The tour features the new UltraMotor A2B electric bikes with the “Power On Demand” that allows riders to choose between pedaling, electric motor power, or both. The lithium battery power assist will help boost you up those San Francisco hills and ensure that you’re never left behind!

The fun and informative tour operates daily and is designed for all abilities of bikers. The A2B bike provides a comfortable, smooth ride with its full suspension and oversized seat.

After your bike fitting, safety orientation, and test drive, you’ll be ready for your exhilarating 3.5- to 4-hour adventure to begin. The knowledgeable guides will share the diverse history of the area with you as you pedal and cruise along the scenic Bay Trail. Ages 16 and up are welcome.

On this guided tour you will zip along the new bike path by the Bay to Fort Point where you can enjoy a quick stop at the Warming Hut before proceeding up to the bridge. Then, just kick up the throttle on your eco-friendly electric bike and enjoy the effortless ascent to the Bridge without breaking a sweat.

Take in the panoramic views of the City and the Bay as you bike over the Golden Gate Bridge! Then it’s a fun downhill coast into Sausalito where you can enjoy great food, shops, and sunshine before heading back to San Francisco on the ferry boat.

Return to Pier 41 in Fisherman’s Wharf on the 35- minute Blue and Gold Fleet Ferry trip with your guide with a short ride through Fisherman’s Wharf from Pier 41 back to the starting location, orchoose to keep the electric bike for additional time at end of route in Sausalito and return to San Francisco at your own pace.  Directions, maps and ferry schedules will be supplied so you can enjoy more time in Sausalito and Tiburon.

The bikes weigh 70 pounds, and will need to be pedaled up hills on some parts of the route. All riders will be required to pedal 1.7 miles on the Golden Gate Bridge without using the power assist.

Helmets are required and will be provided. (You may bring your own helmet.) It is suggested that you do not wear flip-flops, open-toe sandals, or high heels, and that you do not carry heavy backpacks.

You will be required to sign a liability waiver. Any damages to the bike or property are the responsibility of the rider. You must complete the electric bike rider training and test ride. Guests who do not pass the test ride will be refunded 50% of the cost. Training takes place at the beginning of the event, and lasts approximately 15 minutes.
