Pedicab for Sale San Francisco
What to Expect from a Ride in These Open Air Vehicles
If you've ever seen pictures of the beautiful San Francisco Embarcadero and waterfront, there is a good chance you saw someone driven in a Golden Gate Pedicab and looking full of joy.
You've probably wondered what it is like to ride in a Pedicab.
So did I!
I recently had the opportunity to go on one of these tours with Golden Gate Pedicab.
A Pedicab is a two seat, open air cab pulled by a bike. They are a fun and exciting way to easily get around the SF waterfront or tour the local neighborhoods such as Downtown, Fisherman's Wharf or Chinatown.
However, this is not just transportation. It is a fully guided tour and entertainment package all rolled up into one! In fact, my guide, Oskar, refers to his job as "transportainment." I can't imagine a better way to see San Francisco.
My journey started at the . This is where many people start their tour or Pedicab ride. The Ferry Building is a major attraction in San Francisco with lots of great places to eat, hang out and people watch. Oskar and I met up here and started the tour.
As we made our way north on the Embarcadero, Oskar provided information about the attractions and the history of the local area. As I listened, I also had the chance to take some pictures.

We rode past the newly relocated and the facilities for the that took place in 2013.
Compare this to driving, which can take 30 minutes in traffic and add the stress, parking and lack of picture taking opportunities. The Pedicab wins every time!
Five enjoyable minutes later, we cruised past . This is the popular shopping and dining area in .
From there, we made our way past Fish Alley (famous for its fresh seafood stands - you must stop here at least once during your visit), Pier 41 and along the SF waterfront.
The views from the pedicab were fantastic. I was even able to sneak in a picture of Alcatraz from my seat.
Even though we didn't stop on my tour, the drivers are happy to pull over for you to take photos along the way. Just let them know and they’ll find a safe place to stop. Heck, they will even take a picture of you!
Like most journeys and adventures, it had to end. It took less than 20 minutes for my tour. I estimate it would be about 30 minutes or so if you stop for photo opportunities, as there are so many!
