  • Take an audio tour of Alcatraz and learn about its notorious inmates and ghosts, your ferry ticket is included

Take an audio tour of Alcatraz and learn about America's most notorious criminals. Pedal past some of San Francisco's greatest monuments, and enjoy a breezy, scenic, sunset bike ride along the San Francisco coastline. Once you book your ticket, your bike ride will be scheduled for the day before. It's easy peasy!

A total of 36 prisoners made 14 escape attempts at the world-famous penitentiary. Who escaped Alcatraz and who still haunts its spooky cells? Once you learn about life on The Rock, freedom will taste even sweeter!

Approaching the golden hour, when the sun starts to dip below the horizon, you'll pedal along the coast and over the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. See the famous San Francisco piers and Crissy Field, an ex-military airfield that's now a green park abundant with nature.

Snap some photos along the bridge as you pedal the west/ocean side at sunset, when the sky settles in picture-perfect shades of purple, orange, and pink. This area is open exclusively to cyclists at this time of the day, making it totally safe, and quiet too.
