Biking across the Golden Gate Bridge is the best of both worlds. You can navigate the entire Bridge more quickly and with less effort, whilst still being able to stop to snap photos and take in the view.
When & Where to Ride
Cyclists are afforded free, 24 hour access to the bridge, but are required to ride on either the east sidewalk (shared with pedestrians) or the west sidewalk (bikes only), depending on the season and time of day:
On U.S. holidays, Sat-Sun bike access hours are observed.
For late night access to the east sidewalk, press the buzzer located near the closed security gate at each end of the bridge and a security guard will buzz you in.
On weekdays, 5am-3:30pm, when cyclists and pedestrians share the bridge’s east sidewalk, cyclists must yield to pedestrians, pass on the left, and slow down when approaching congested or blocked areas of the walkway.
Where to Rent a Bike
There are bike rental shops throughout the city. The one closest to the Bridge is Sports Basement Presidio, which is easily accessible to the Bridge via a bike path that is less than 1 mile (1.6 km).
And the sweetest part? You can park in the store’s lot for free during your bike rental!
Bike rentals $24+ for 3 hours; or $32+ a day. Rental includes helmet and bike lock. Online reservations recommended.
