I did the Point Reyes bike 2 day and loved it. Booked it the night before, on a whim while shopping in the store. You can get everything you need including a bike... More

The staff was wonderful and friendly!!! The price for bike rentals were shockingly INEXPENSIVE and hassle free!!!! All five kids were sized for their bikes and helmets, with respect and great care!!! The store is very close to the Golden Gate Bridge, which made our bike experience with 5 pre-teens ABSOLUTELY amazing!!! Thank you, Sports Basement! We loved you!!!!!!!!

The Sports Basement people are wonderful lovers of the outdoors - and boy, do they host well. The bike ride to Point Reyes and back to SF was well supported with a SAG car. Even when I got a flat tire, Lauren helped me out. The people you meet on the trip are of similar awesomeness. I will be going... More

SB did a fantastic job to organize the trip. It was very well planned, we were well taken care off and had a great time. This trip exceeded our expectation and some more. We would definitely be joining again in their future events.

I had an awesome time! I had climbed a little in gyms but this was way better and had some good variety of routes. I felt very safe.

Thank you to the best adventure guides I could have asked for on the Olema-Pt. Reyes bike/camping trip. From the ride to the food to the immense support and guidance led by Damon, Pete, Matt, Lauren, Diana, and Theo, the trip was, for lack of a better word—flawless. If you’re an outdoor junkie or a tourist visiting from out of... More

Great 2-day ride and camping adventure with very hospitable Sports Basement staff and easy going and fun participants. Two route options each day (short and long). Ride from SF Presidio to Olema Campsite in Point Reyes (loop back on second day). Excellent food and support. Worth the $$$.
