On a typical day, you'll likely see hundreds of happy cyclists enjoying a spin around the Presidio. That's because bicycling is a great way to explore the park's 1,500 acres of outdoor beauty and fun. The Presidio is also a wonderful jumping off point for biking adventures that extend along San Francisco's waterfront or north across the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin.
Getting to the Presidio
The 511 Regional BikeMapper tool provides turn-by-turn biking directions so you can find the fastest – or flattest – route to the Presidio. If you want to save your energy, catch a ride on the PresidiGo Downtown Shuttle, which offers direct service from the Transbay Terminal and Embarcadero BART to the Presidio Transit Center on the Main Post. The shuttle, which features easy-to-use bike racks, is free and runs seven days a week. Please check the schedule for times when it is available to the general public
Bicycling in the Presidio
Once here, you'll find many opportunities to ride "in-road" as well as off-road on designated multiuse trails. The PresidiGo Around the Park Shuttle, which provides two routes around the Presidio, also features bike racks.
The Presidio Bike Map shows designated in-road and off-road biking opportunities.
Bike Link Lockers
Bike Link is a bike parking system that offers secure bike parking at the Presidio Transit Center, on the west side of the building, across from the First Republic Bank. For a very low hourly fee, you can safely store your bike and protect it from the elements. The lockers use "smart cards" to pay for the cost of storing the bikes. You can visit www.bikelink.org for the locations of card vendors, detailed instructions on how to operate the bike lockers, and for the locations of other bike lockers in their network.
Rent a Bicycle
If you're already in the Presidio and want to pick up some wheels, Sports Basement, located at Crissy Field, offers bike rentals.
