I would recommend anyone going on the this tour they should have participated in some level of regular exercise, although you can ride at your... More

I had the best time on this tour, I hadn't been on a bike in probably a decade but the ride was easy and enjoyable with a friendly tour guide. We made stops along the way to take photos and the guide made sure everyone was keeping up. Lunch in Sausalito was really nice, too. I was by myself so... More

I used a go card to hire the cycle, the staff were friendly and accommodating in booking the bike and offered a demo which was useful. Returning the bike was as pleasant as it was to hire. I would recommend using bay city cycles for you cycling needs in San Fransisco.

For the cost of a having a bike for the day you can ride almost anywhere you like. Across the bridge can be a bit hectic at times. The down hill ride makes for a good finish after a couple of hill climbs. Guys were helpful in where to go and what to do. Recommend for sure.

We rented performance hybrid bikes for a week and rode all around the city. Booking online was a great idea, saved us some money. The bikes were light and worked well. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They have several locations so it's very convenient. Excellent experience all around!

I went on the sunset guided tour and it was incredible. It was myself and one other person riding along having basically a private tour of San Fran. I was able to ask lots of questions and ride at our own pace, as well as having a personal photographer - bonus!!! The views were incredible and the route we took... More

One of my favorite experiences from our San Francisco vacation was renting bikes from Bay City Bike Rentals and riding along the coast from the wharf to the Golden Gate Bridge, riding over it and then down to Sausalito. I was concerned that I would not be able to do the trip because I am definitely not "in shape" but... More
