A nice way to spend a couple of hours

The bikes are poorly maintained but I expect that's a fairly normal thing with rental bikes. The service was good though, and the riding itself was really enjoyable.

Although the bikes looked good they did not perform for the long trek we took. The booth was in a prominent location and so I think we were taken in by this thinking that the bikes would be well maintained but gears were clunky and rattled along jumping at unpredictable times. I found the map difficult to follow & we... More

The bike I had was old, uncomfortable and badly looked after. The agents didn't care and weren't interested in resolving my concerns. I wouldn't recommend this company.

My family of four rented bikes for the day, planning to bike over the Golden Gate bridge, into Sausalito and then on to Tiburon before taking the ferry back to Fisherman's wharf. The team who helped get us set up with our equipment was very helpful (even giving us bandaids to take with after my son crashed on his inaugural... More

I rented 5 bikes this morning for what was I thought a 4 hour rental as per the website. The customer service was ok with clear instructions on where to go. However, the bikes were poor. All 5 bikes had worn rear tyres, which is a worry as no pump or puncture repair kit is included. My biggest gripe, though,... More

Bikes could use some improvement. The seat would not stay up and we kept trying to fix it... and then it would drop again. No partial refund offered. Nothing! Saying that we should have brought it back is really not the point... they should make sure they have bikes that work is up to them, not us.

Talk about a fun filled day - we spent the morning on kayaks in the Monterey Bay up close and personal with the sea otters then hit the water front of Cannery Row for lunch and finished up with tandem bike rides along the Monterey Peninsula Bike Trail. It was breathtaking scenery and so much fun. The crew at Blazing... More

My husband and I were planning a trip down to the Monterey Bay. I had always wanted to rent bikes and ride the beautiful coast. As luck would have it, I found a Groupon online good for two all day hybrid bike rentals for the price of 1. SWEET. Price = $36.00 Since we were on vacation, we slept in... More

Although the sights of the Monterey Bay are astonishing, and the road along the coast from the aquarium to Pebble Beach is undeniably beautiful, having to rush through the whole thing gives a rather bitter taste to the experience. Facts: the route Blazing Saddles advises you to follow does NOT take 2 hours to ride through. Even if you manage... More

Blazing saddles rent out bikes so you can bike along the Monterey area. The service was amazing, the bikes worked extremely well and there were a lot of excellent details which made the ride safe and fun. The bikes came with helmets (I am a big safety first girl, so big plus) they also came with locks, a bag at... More
