Our route lies past the headquarters of the legendary company Levi Strauss – I’ll tell you how the history of the Gold Rush is associated with jeans, and after the tour we suggest you to visit the museum dedicated to this garment on your own.
Kaleidoscope of areas. We’ll ride through the city’s most diverse neighborhoods: Haight-Ashbury, the birthplace of the hippies, Castro, where LGBT people live, wealthy Sea Cliff and Richmond.

Here you will enjoy the untouched flora, stand on the Land’s End, where daylight ends on the American continent, and take a photo overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge.
