Owner description: 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!

This it the place to go for best service, new bikes and great suggestions. We did the bike the bridge and ride the ferry back from Sausalito. They provided us with ferry tickets ahead of time and it saved us at a minimum 30 minutes in line. Luckily we were the last 6 bikes on the ferry. The staff is... More

There are many outfits around San Francisco that hire out bikes to bike the bridge. I'm so glad my brother suggested this one that he had used earlier this year. The service at the hire place could not be faulted. The staff were friendly, fun and informative. I have hired bikes in many countries and these people and their bikes... More

We stayed with the bikes for less than an hour and our friend hurt her knee really bad, we went back to return the bike and tried to make a deal or something because two of us will come back in about a week with our families but they charged us for 2 hours. Never ever going back there. Oh,... More

There are plenty of places to hire bikes in San Francisco but Blazing Saddles have outlets all over town so it's easy to find one near anywhere especially in the Fishermans Wharf area. Expect efficient friendly enthusiastic service. The staff were really customer focussed and went to great lengths to get us the exact bike we wanted. We hired a... More

We took a quick trip from Fisherman's Wharf, across the Golden Gate Bridge and to the first ferry pick-up point. The staff at Blazzing Saddles were super friendly and very knowledgeable.

These guys are recommended. Yes they may be one of those that hand out flyers on the front but with very good reason. This is one of the best ways to get around S.F. and over the bridge. They go through a couple of suggested routes with you and you're given a couple of ferry tickets to use if you... More
