Ride Across the Golden Gate Bridge Sidewalks

Cyclists have toll-free access to the Golden Gate Bridge sidewalks 24/7. Cyclists use the East Sidewalk between 5am and 3:30pm and after 9pm, and use the West Sidewalk between 3:30pm and 9pm. Note: Cyclists MUST yield to pedestrians and use caution in the areas around the towers due to limited space to maneuver and sight distances.

Stop at the Super Energizer Station located at Vista Point (north end of the Bridge) between 5:30am and 9:30am!

Park Your Bike in a Rack Inside SECURED Area at Larkspur Ferry Terminal

Larkspur Ferry: Most morning and afternoon Larkspur commute trips operate at capacity with respect to the numbers of bikes they can accommodate, making bike parking at the Larkspur Terminal a great alternative.

Cyclists who do not regularly commute on the ferry are encouraged to use bike racks at the Larkspur Terminal or ride to the Sausalito Ferry where as many as 200 bikes can be accommodated. At the Larkspur Terminal, secure bike parking on racks located inside the paid waiting area can accommodate up to 80 bikes. Another 30 racks located outside the waiting area can accommodate 60 bikes.

Stop at the Energizer Station at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal between 6:15am and 9:15am!

Sausalito Ferry: Up to about 200 bicycles (amount varies based on conditions and ridership) can be accommodated on the Spaulding vessel used for this route. Electric bicycles are not permitted. There are also several bike parking zones in downtown Sausalito very close to the Sausalito Ferry Landing.
