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

Hiring a bike to cycle the Golden Gate Bridge and down into Sausalito was a highlight of our trip to San Fran. The people at Blazing Saddles were very helpful and friendly and the system for issuing and paying for the rentals as well as return is very efficient. The bikes are geared and easy to ride and our whole... More

I booked the blazing saddles three hour bike tour on grouping for a discounted rate. All my research said that Blazing Saddles was the best company in SF to do the bike tour with. It must have been an off day. We arrived 25 minutes early. We weren't really directed very well when/where the bike tour was to begin, but... More

Staff were informative, routes east to navigate and mainly off road.... We did the full route and enjoyed the many sightseeing opportunities it allowed. Golden Gate Bridge, Saulsalito, moor woods and it was such great fun..... A must if you have the energy and want to get out and explore.

Great service and friendly staff, good quality bikes with no gear issues but very very squeaky breaks! I went with my wife and a friend for a day out. Let it be known... I HATE bikes. I'm fit and enjoy a good run/walk but I just don't like bike riding but wanted to give it a chance. I'm really happy... More

Six days ago I biked the bridge with my friends and we had a brilliant day. My card was used as the 'guarantee' card for the bikes, and I was explicitly told that no money would be touched or set aside unless anything happened to the bikes, yet I currently have a pending transaction of $600 on my card, despite...

I'm still a little sore from the bike ride... Biking across the Golden Gate Bridge is the only proper way to see and feel the quintessence of San Francisco! We got our bikes from the Fisherman's Wharf store and were very helpfully instructed on the route of the ride, it was also very good that store staff gave us a... More

I hired a bike for a day, cycled solo around San Francisco, went across the bridge, the day I was there it was pedestrians only on one side, bikes only on the other so I didn't have the problem so many others report, of dodging round walkers. Staff at the store are OK but not friendly, the guy setting up... More

My husband and I purchased a combo tour that included bike rentals for a trip over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, ferry tickets (normally not included in rentals), and tickets to Alcatraz for $98 each. It was completely worth it! I first found out about the combo tour when trying to find tickets to Alcatraz. I made the mistake... More
