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.

The shop we were going to rent from ran out, they sent us here. I'm always nervous of rentals, they are so hard to maintain because of the way they get ridden. These were great, a hybrid, but no issue riding to Sausalito. Staff were quite friendly. I'd happily recommend.

San Francisco is a place to go, its streets, its surroundings and can pass through the Golden Gate. this is only possible using bicycle, in this place there are a good number of these. So if your rate is not as economical as one may think.

A great ride, but a word to the wise unless you want to wait for the ferry on a one way trip, turn at the golden gate bridge and go back the way you came you will save a lot of time and money on your bike rental 🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴

Highly recommend this as an outing. Don't need to be super fit to do this but be prepared for a couple of hills - ok to get off and walk if need to. We took a guided tour and would strongly recommend that option for best tips re view points, photo opportunities and safety. Collection point was a little confusing... More

We collected our bikes from Fisherman's Wharf shop, the bikes were in good condition with a little front bag and useful map case, Brian showed us how to use the gears and brakes (the brakes are the wrong way round to UK bikes)and showed us the route on the map. The ride to the bridge is along a bike path... More

A reasonably priced exercise that gives you a good perspective of the Bay Area. We rented at the Wharf from 2 young people who were very obliging. The bikes were comfortable and well maintained. The pouch was handy for carrying and there was a place to carry water (which you need to have). The trip up to the bridge was... More

Worst customer service ever. Even the manager is aggresive.Charge you for incurance without asking/telling. Were there on time but they refused to take the bikes back. Had to take my family to the late drop, and walk 45 min back to Bart, Embarcadero. The manager said that before 8 pm is not at 8 pm, and since the "Ferry building... More

Fantastic business - easy to use and friendly staff. Hired a bike for 2 hrs and crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and back - bike was in good condition, clear maps and all for 16 bucks. Great experience!

Good bikes, friendly helpful service, this is a great way to see the Bay Area. We took the tour with Patricia who was really helpful and took great photos for us at each stop. We prebooked back in the UK and picking up and returning was faultless. The tour takes you over the Golden Gate Bridge which is a bit... More

We arrived at 10 am in the morning and we were welcomed by a younger boy. He gave us a vague explanation of how we needed to ride but that's it, he didn't told us how we needed to adjust our bikes, the closing time etc the bike itself was very good and we had an amazing view while we... 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.
