Driving a car through Golden Gate Park doesn’t do the landscape justice. The best way to appreciate the grandeur and diverse greenery of the 1,017-acre park is by bicycle. To ensure that your two-wheeled adventure doesn’t end with you completely lost, try a private guided cycling tour. Parkwide offers all types of guided tours on both standard and e-bikes, but you can also skip the booking portal on the website and call to set up a custom, private guided tour of the park, complete with a picnic lunch and chilled refreshments. The cycling pros at Parkwide will design the route based on your requests and even allow for time to hop off and explore spots like the de Young Museum (head straight to the elevator for the observation tower, then be sure to wind around the back of the museum to experience James Turrell’s meditative Sky Space), the Botanical Gardens, and the Conservatory of Flowers. Pro tip: Make your way to the Beach Chalet at the westernmost point of the park to watch the sunset.
