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

We decided to use Blazing Saddles to bike across the Golden Gate Bridge. We had 5 kids with us (ages 7-17) so we rented a couple bikes that were tandems for the younger kids. They were great and the bikes worked well. Overall it was a great day, but beware, there are a LOT of bikers doing the same thing... More

I rented from the Union Square location and had a positive experience. Book online for a 20% discount. Several style bikes are offered. Bike was in average condition but was serviceable. Helmets are available. San Francisco is hilly so you would need to be in average condition to be able to enjoy this experience. Traffic can also be a little... More

Our bike broke down twice on the way back from the trip to Salsalito and when we informed the manager she was beyond rude, told us we should have called and informed them of the problem prior to coming back to the shop. Since we didnt call ahead of time, nothing could be done. The lady had a major power... More

We booked this company for our trip over the Golden Gate Bridge. We booked the reservation online thus qualifying for a 20% discount in the shop. When we arrived at the shop the whole team was there waiting for us. We were quickly and efficiently kitted out with everything we could possibly need for the day. We were issued with... More

You should be in moderate/average shape to do this bike ride. I saw a lot of people walking their bikes up the first hill and it wasn't that bad or big of a hill. There are about 5-7 small hills (very doable). The ride is incredible with beautiful views along the way and into Sausalito. We rented our bikes from... More

We rented from the location closest to Crissy Field. They were really busy but I was impressed by how enthusiastic everyone was and how quickly they got us on our bikes. Our experience in the shop was like a whirlwind of information and compliments and within minutes we were out the door, pedalling with confidence toward the golden gate bridge.... More

Brilliant fun, we rented bikes and cycled the bridge. Despite not having cycled for about 5 years this was a smooth and easy cycle - majority of it was off road on cycle paths with just an upward push to get up to the bridge! We cycled to Sausalito and got the ferry back. The queues for the ferry were... More

This is a great activity to do as a family. The staff at Blazing Saddles could not be more helpful, fitting you out for your gear & bike. We did the ride from pier 39 to Sausalito, which has a few challenging hill sections, but you can walk them, however most of is reasonably flat. Beware of the winds when... More

Great helpful staff. Nice comfy bikes. Good price. Some tough hills (but I'm a not biker, my Dad who is a biker found them fine) a really fun day and great route with brilliant views. Definitely recommend.

When I visited San Francisco I was filled with excitement to cycle the Golden Gate Bridge. I rented out bicycles from Blazing Saddles - 2715 Hyde Street, San Francisco. On my return half way across the Golden Gate Bridge the chain came off my bike. As I was unsure what to do a passerby helped as the bike was unmoveable... More
