Guides like Blandina Farley, who will lead you to the city’s best dim sum on her Chinatown Walking Food Tour. Or self-described hippie TreeFlower, who will transport you back to San Francisco’s 60′s movement touring landmarks in a colourful bus that spews bubbles. Or Ryan Russo, who left the world of tech to run the likes of The Gold Rush Drinking Tour that takes you to historic saloons around the city. All of them are superb resources for learning about the Bay Area, but there is another way to see the sights: through the eyes of bike guide Frieda Lewis, who will lead you and your two-wheeler across the Golden Gate Bridge while regaling you with stories of the City by the Bay that you’ll never read in a guidebook.
Of course, Frieda’s tours are decidedly more mellow than those that some bike-riding thrill-seekers might offer. Take these crazy bike riders in San Francisco, for instance, who, in this video, gladly show off their native city while pulling some of the most epic stunts ever performed on two wheels.
