We found a pamphlet for the Sports Basement when we landed at the airport. We ended up using Sports Basement to rent our bicycles for the half-day. It cost us $15 per bicycle (including helmet and bike-lock) for 3 hours. We were able to rent basic bicycles, but they also had tandem bicycles and street bikes (bring your own Lycra!).... More

I couldn't have had a better weekend with Anthony, Pete, Mike, Matt, Casey, Theo and Sandy from Sports Basement! This was my first ever overnight camping bike ride and the SB team could not have done a better job – including Lane, our own personal chef. Between the long and shorter ride options, we had a minimum of 3-5 people... More

This clinic was great, I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to learn basic trail techniques such as switchbacks, climbing, and rock gardens.. I've been riding bikes for awhile but just started mountain biking and was looking for a good way to learn some of the techniques. The guides, Damon and Casey, were fantastic! They took us on a...

This was a great bike ride with excellent support and a great intro to bike touring. They did the best job of support that I have ever experienced. The route was marked with route arrows, there were three support vehicles as well as SB ride guides doing the ride with us. They made sure that everyone was safe and accounted... More

This was a two-day ride starting from the Presidio Sports Basement store, up to Point Reyes. We camped overnight at the Olema Campground and then rode back the next day. The ride was very well supported. There were two routes, a short one of about 35 miles and a long one of about 62 miles, each day. There were several... More

I went on a 2-day road biking and camping trip to Pt. Reyes - it was awesome. All of the guides were awesome (both friendly and useful), the route was spectacular, the camping was well organized, and the food was delicious.

I couldn't have been more overwhelmed by the grand beauty of Yosemite and the amazing crew that took us there. Damon, Matt, and Amy did a fabulous job of keeping us hydrated, fed, informed, and out of harms way throughout the three day backpacking trip. If you're considering a hike to Half Dome I'd highly recommend making a long weekend... More

I went here to rent a bicycle to ride over the Bridge since this store is the closest to the Bridge. The staff were extremely friendly and nice even knowing they get asked the same questions hundreds of times a day. I rented the bike and had a great time. After returning the bike on Sunday, Aug 31, I was... More
