Bike the Bridge! 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!

Had a great experience the staff were very helpful and cheerful. The short video was helpful tent played at the beginning. We also had a map and there were signs along the routes. It is a fair cycle to the Golden Great Bridge but we not only cycled to Sausalito but then around to Tiburon. Then we got the ferry... More

We bought a groupon to use for 2 bikes for $36.00. After arriving at fisherman's wharf (as they have several locations there) we had to go to 2 other locations before our groupon was finally accepted. This location was on Hyde street, which makes it very inconvenient if you are already at one of the piers. The ride was beautiful.... More

What best expressed about how I feel about this experience was the 'welcome back' whoops and cheers that the staff gave us when we rode down the slope to return our bikes at Blazing Saddles. From start to finish it was great and we'd thoroughly recommend it. We were blessed with a warm sunny day (in mid Feb) and it... More

I have used Blazing Saddles on Columbus twice. Three years ago I opted for a standard type of 12 speeder that got me around. This time, with my wife, we wanted something better to allow us to do a day's proper cycling. Morgan at the store was full of patience, helped us choose just what we wanted (bikes we could... More

We biked across the Golden Gate Bridge on our recent trip to San Francisco. This was, by far, one of the most memorable parts of our trip. We biked all the way to Sausalito, which is really beautiful. The bike is not an easy one, but well worth it.

This is a great way to experience San Francisco. As San Francisco is a congested city and difficult to navigate by car, renting a bicycle is a great way to conveniently get around this compact city and see many of the sights. The staff at Blazing Saddles are friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and will readjust your bike’s settings to your size/height... More

Have wanted to bike the bridge for years. Finally had a nice weather day so we tired the two kids along and rented bikes at fisherman's. The orientation was useful and accurate. I like that the rental bikes all have a bag at the front--good for stuff and helped us identify the other rookies. Being about to catch the ferry... More

I had seen so many bike hire places round San Francisco on past visits and finally decided to give "biking the bridge" a try. You can get a good discount for booking ahead online with Blazing Saddles and then pick the bike up from near the cablecar stop at Hyde - this is also the closest start point for the... More
