At Blazing Saddles Bike Rentals and Tours we want our guests to come away from a day on our bikes feeling as if they have just experienced the very best that our city has to offer. Whether it is a local resident enjoying our state of the art equipment or a visitor seeing the city for the first time, we encourage our riders to enjoy the bike friendly environment of San Francisco. Blazing Saddles was one of the first in the industry to develop a proprietary map of suggested routes and points of interest, and we have been a major pioneer in promoting cycling through the Presidio National Park, over the Golden Gate Bridge and into Sausalito and Tiburon. All of our seven locations in San Francisco have easy access to a car-free bike path that winds around the city by the bay. We have the largest fleet of bikes in San Francisco, including state of the art electric bikes, tandems and kids’ bikes. We also have high performance road and mountain bikes for those who want to explore Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Mt. Tamalpais State Park. We rent bikes 365 days a year and we open at 8am every day. For those that want something more we offer a daily tour with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. No reservations necessary, so come on down when you’re ready to Bike the Bridge! « less

A few friends and I had been told that riding the Golden Gate bridge was a must do activity for San Francisco. I only had the 2 days in town so was keen to get out and see the city and this is a great way to do it. We found the brochure for a number of operators in the... More

Did the Bike the bridge day deal with return ferry tickets included. All seemed ok if a little rushed at the hire shop, but my bike needed a new bottom bracket, the rear wheel came loose on my wife's and my daughters bike was a bit small making it a uncomfortable day for her. Lost faith in the bike after... More

It is a great way to view SF. On the other hand we also rented a tandem bike in their Santa Monica Pier site and the... More

Me and my wife joined the guided tour. At the end of the tour, we think self guided is more than sufficient. If you are not those people that are very interested on the history and stories behind, self guided tour is good enough for you. We also regretted that we didn't spend more time at Sausalito enjoying the serenity... More

My husband and I rented bikes at the Jefferson St. location at Fisherman's Warf and the staff were excellent. Very helpful and enthusiastic, we could hardly wait to get started. It was an absolutely excellent day. Rode across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, walked around, had lunch then continued our bike tour to the Tiburon Ferry terminal, about 18... More

Great company to rent bikes from, very friendly staff and very thorough when setting up your ride. We hired a tandem for me and hubby and a bike each for the teenagers and cycled over to Sausalito then caught the ferry back and had a great day out.

Rented bikes for a family of four from Blazing Saddles Fisher mans Wharf. Their energy and enthusiasm was infectious and overcame any lingering doubts. The time can be very flexible and there are a few options. We found the ride to Sausalito very pleasant with mostly cycle paths and going over the Golden Gate Bridge was amazing. We had a... More

This is one of the most exciting experiences one can enjoy in a travel. You are in San Francisco? Don't miss this biking tour, you will regret it. This shop has more than one point to deliver or rent the bike from, some in the city downtown and the others near the bay. The trick is that if you rent... More
