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.

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

We went for a trip from SF to sansolito with the bike. We took our bikes at columbus. The guy was not friendly, did not give any explanation or assistance about the bikes. We came back around 7:04. He was closing the door in front of us. Told us to go to colombus 5 and went off on his bike... More

Excellent fun bike ride from downtown to Sausalito for lunch and Ferry back. Biking on Golden Gate was just great better then walking, drivning or on a Ferry (yet to try swimming)! Good exercise comes in the package. Good bikes and staff.

We did a self guided tour around the golden gate park, Golden Gate Bridge and Sausalito in 9 hours. Great way to sight see at your own pace. The terrain way hilly and challenging at times. We were able to ride the ferry back with our bikes to pier 1. Would recommend wearing a helmet due to traffic and terrain.... More

We did a bike tour to Lands End. The tour was fun and a great sightseeing. Can highly recommend it. But, I would either evaluate the bikes beforehand or choose another vendor. The bikes are not very good but well enough to make it there and back.

I was in San Francisco for two days and renting a bike allowed me to see the city at my own pace but manage to fit it in! The ride from fisherman's wharf to the golden gate Bridge is nice with only about 2 blocks of (slow moving) traffic before reaching a cycle path which is mostly flat. My experience... 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.
