CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Golden Gate Bridge to Mt. Tam, California - view from above looking down over Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco in distance

Ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to Mt. Tam Peak and back

Ride 38 miles gaining 4,100’

One of our most favorite rides in the world - ride across the Golden Gate Bridge.  The Golden Gate Bridge is hands down the #1 tourist attraction in San Francisco, which necessarily makes it the top tourist attraction in Northern California and one of the top in all of California and the United States.  In our opinion, the best way to see and experience the bridge is on bike, of course.

On the bridge.

This route is not just about the Golden Gate Bridge, but also about the greatest vantage point to view San Francisco, San Francisco Bay, and its surrounding areas.  At no point in the Bay Area are there better views of San Francisco Bay than Mt. Tam’s West Peak.
