2 Riding Days
Start & Finish
Start - San Francisco
End - San Francisco
30 - 70 miles per day
Easygoing - Moderate
Get out of town on two wheels. Weekend getaways give you a taste of the good life, but get you back to the city in time for the work week. Choose one of three two-day bike rides with one night of camping around the Bay Area to get you exploring in the great outdoors.
San Francisco - Point Reyes
San Francisco - Bodega Bay
San Francisco - Half Moon Bay
Day by Day
Day 1 | San Francisco - Point Reyes | 46 miles
Starting at the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, cycle past Sausalito and through the North Bay. You'll ride by farming pastures and past reservoirs with the option to stop and taste some local produce at cheese factories along the way. Cut out to Tomales Bay, and ride along fishing towns to Point Reyes. You'll spend the night tucked away in the Redwoods just beyond in Samuel P. Taylor Park.
Day 2 | Point Reyes - San Francisco | 39 miles
Head back towards the Coast, and bike south along the 1 to the Bolinas Lagoon Open Space Preserve. Take a beach break at Stinson Beach before climbing up the side of Mt. Tamalpais for incredible views of the Bay along beautiful forested roads. Cycle through the North Bay to the bridge, and cross back into the city over the Golden Gate.
Day by Day
Day 1 | San Francisco - Bodega Bay | 72 miles
You'll leave San Francisco, and head through the small North Bay towns of Sausalito, Ross, San Anselmo, and Fairfax. Shortly before lunch, you'll take a turn towards the Petaluma hills, and enjoy miles of rolling farmland and rural countryside. Enjoy a picnic lunch, pond-side at a local cheese factory before continuing through Marin County, and hitting the coast in Bodega Bay. Camp is just outside of city limits.
Day 2 | Bodega Bay - San Francisco | 69 miles
From Bodega Bay, wind down the coast and head inland to the quaint towns of Valley Ford and Tomales. After biking along the shore of Tomales Bay, stop in Point Reyes Station for lunch before continuing to Stinson Beach and the coastal redwoods. Finish the ride with a beautiful climb up the side of Mt. Tamalpais, into the Marin Headlands and Sausalito before crossing the iconic Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco.
Day by Day
Day 1 | San Francisco - Half Moon Bay | 34 miles
Starting in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, you'll travel south, past Fort Funston, to the coast. Bike along scenic side roads, coastline cliffs, and surfers' paradise before you reach Half Moon Bay. Go explore town or simply enjoy the ocean-side campsite. Just follow the sound of the waves to find yourself at the beach.
Day 2 | Half Moon Bay - San Francisco | 38 or 57 miles
To return, you'll head towards the Santa Cruz mountains and either take an easier, flatter route, or a quieter, more challenging climb. Whichever you choose, you'll ride deep into the Santa Cruz Mountains Redwood forest, which offers winding scenic roads with nothing but Redwood giants all around. Hit the South Bay, and bike North on reservoir paths until you return to the city limits and return to Golden Gate Park.
