Description: Bike and Roll is the nation's premier bicycle rentals and tours company...
Bike and Roll is the nation's premier bicycle rentals and tours company with locations in San Francisco, New York, Wasington, DC, Chicago, and Miami. Bike and Roll San Francisco offers you some of the most beautiful bike rides in the world. Imagine leaving Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, riding a bike path along the San Francisco Bay, through the Presidio and Golden Gate National Recreation Area, over the Golden Gate Bridge, and into Sausalito where one can board a ferry for a boat cruise back across the bay. Thousands of visitors make this journey on a daily basis throughout the peak visitor season as the Bay Trail bicycle ride has emerged as a must do visitor event in the city by the bay. For the more adventurous, San Francisco sits just below the Marin Headlands where the origins of mountain biking can be found. In addition to its line of comfort bikes for leisure riding, Bike and Roll offers a full line of high-end bikes for the more experienced or more adventurous rider.

Biking in San Francisco was great. They provided us with maps of the city and told us about using the fairy to return the bikes.

From walking in Steven was great. He answered all the questions we had and the most important thing was that the direction was easy to follow. From the instructions given and how he bikes worked and everything. They were very friendly.

This was one of my best days in San Fran, I can't wait to do it again. Love biking, love the sights and weather, just amazing. Be sure to check out Saulsalita too. Amazing area. Could've been a little cheaper though. $36 to rent a bike for the day is a bit much.

I live in San Francisco and my favorite activity to take visitors from out of town is to rent bikes, bike across the Golden Gate Bridge, bike down to Sausalito, and take the ferry back to the Ferry Building. When I first visited friends in SF in 2011, they took me to do this and I've loved it ever since.... More

I've rented bikes a number of times in San Francisco, but this was my first time with Bike and Roll. They were very convenient to my hotel; price was reasonable and they were helpful. The bike was okay - not the newest one I've every rented. They did provide helmets for free which I appreciated.

As one of the iconic descriptors of San Francisco, it was quite an experience to actually bike across the bridge and be awed by its incredible engineering. The bike ride from Fishermans Wharf along the bike paths to the bridge is a great mix of flat and uphill riding with incredible views of the Bay through the Marina District. While... More

Very fun day. Allow time for lunch in Sausalito, very cute town. I would definitely recommend for a day outing. We took the ferry back to the wharf.

We hired bikes from down near Pier 43.5 and biked along the wharf and up to the Golden Gate Bridge. My partner and I are not cyclists by any means but we had an amazing time seeing San Francisco and Sausalito by bike. The sun was shinning and it was a beautiful day to photograph the bridge, we were even... More

From Fishermen's Wharf over Golden Gate Bridge, and back, an excellent way to view the sky line of SF, along with seeing Fishermen's Wharf and the Golden Gate. Invented ca 1939 by what became known as "hard hatters" was the hardhat, do not forget to wear one when you ride, they are supplied at no extra charge in the rental.... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
