Probably the best afternoon I've had in a long time. Starting in San Francisco, you pick up your bike at Bay City Bike. Along the way to the bridge you'll pass some great sites, including Ghirardellis, the Gashouse cove park, Crissy Fields and Fort point. Then the bridge! After stopping at Vista Point Overlook to take stock of how far you've come from SF, you head down the looong down hill to Sausalito. The entire ride takes about 2 hrs and is approximately 8 miles. Don't worry though, it's for beginners/intermediate riders and, after stopping for lunch and a beer, you simply take the ferry back to SF (so no trekking back up that looong hill).

Itnerary:
 
1)   Title: Bay City Bike  
   Location/Address: 2661 Taylor St.
  Time:  noon(ish)
   I recommend the comfort bike for $32/day. Place your camera in the pouch and go.
 
2)   Title: Views en route to the bridge  
   Location/Address: Crissy Fields
  Time:  1(ish)
   Along the way, stop from time to time to soak in the views. It's amazing!
 
3)   Title: The Golden Gate  
   Location/Address: foot of the bridge
  Time:  1:30(is)
   The views just get better and better. Although it looks like a long way across, it goes fast, so take advantage of the various stop-off points to look around.
 
4)   Title: Sausalito  
   Location/Address: The ride in
  Time:  2(ish)
   The ride down the hill, into town and through town are a great payoff for your pedaling. Find a waterfront spot, grab a seat, a bite and a beer and relax for a bit.
 
5)   Title: The Sausalito ferry terminal  
   Location/Address: ferry terminal
  Time:  3:50
   Be sure to get on the 4pm ferry, enjoy the views with a beer or drink from the full bar and, when you get back to SF, you still have your evening to enjoy the city.
