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

My boyfriend and I biked the bridge for his 23rd birthday, and we BOTH had a BLAST! I was impressed by the service, beyond my expectation. The location was at Hyde. Rochelle was one of the sweetest helper there. She made us feel welcomed after our bike. SHE WAS AWESOME! :) Be sure to say hi to her!

My wife and I rented from the Columus location at 10:30 on a Saturday. We are active 50 years olds in decent physical shape, but this would be the first time we cycled seriously in over 10 years. The employee gave us a quick lesson on the operation of their standard mountain bike (brakes and gears) and made us watch... More

An excellent way to spend a day and see the bridge! Hired a bike from the Powell store- the staff were very friendly and took time to explain everything. The ride was pretty easy (only a couple of hills to work the legs) and loved being able to go at my own pace and detour off to look at things... More

I went on the guided bridge tour which was hosted really well and great fun. Carried on then to tiburon and got the ferry back. Well organised and definitely the best way to see bay and the bridge.

We rented bikes from this company as they were willing to match the price of all other providers without us asking, purely because we were holding a leaflet. They had a good deal so that if you had the bike for more than a few hours (four I think), they charged a very reasonable price for a 24 hour period.... More

IMHO this is the best way to see the waterfront sights of SF. We picked up our bikes at the rental location near Pier 39 - very efficiently dealt with by the crew of mostly Irish representatives (there are $5 discount coupons in most of the free SF Tourist maps). Set off along the water front and took in all... More

My boyfriend and I rented our bikes from the Hyde Street location. We had an amazing time, and really got to see the beauty of San Francisco.

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
