“What... you rode over the Golden Gate Bridge!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Our family of four rode the GGB over to Sausalito then ferried back to pier 1 where we continued to ride back to Bike & View. We collected the bikes at 10am and dropped them back at 5pm, we were fitted out with 2 mountain bikes for Mum and Son with Dad and Daughter have a tag-a-long type bike, it looked really fun and was a lot of fun. We rode about 20 miles, many of which is easy going to gliding downhill and some harder climbs where you can push if it's too hard. The man and B & V was pretty helpful, I would use them again.

“hidden but excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We rented bikes from here to tour around San Fran after walking Lombard St. The shop is small and easy to walk by but the owner was great and provided well-working bikes with lots of great advice.

“Good bikes and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We have rented two bikes for a day. We rented by the internet and walked up to the store. The staff were very helpfull and worried in instructing what to do and not to do. The bikes were working very well and we had a lot of fun. Definitelly recomend because of the prices, the product and the service!

“great service, great bikes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

my friends and I rented bikes from this store to cross the GG bridge to Sausalito. if you crossing the bridge to Sausalito you must take the ferry back to san francisco. the only thing we didn't really like is that on the bridge was a little windy and cold.

“Bicycle & Alcatraz Tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

I found this place on Trip Advisor while planning our vacation for Labor Day weekend.The reason we had to use them was because we waited too long to book our Alcatraz Trip and were sold out unless you did a combo package like this one. They are one of the few Bike Rental places that offer a bike rental and Alcatraz combo package that you can do on your own and are not part of a group tour! Which is a BONUS! You get to dictate what time your pick up your bike and what day! You also can rent your bike one day and go to Alcatraz on a different date. . I highly recommend you do that, this way you can enjoy both! We picked up our bicycles on Saturday and went to Alcatraz on a Monday. The con with this option is that you have to go back to their shop and pick up your tickets for Alcatraz on the day that your going. You can't get your tickets early! I asked! This was very inconvenient for us, since we didn't have our own transportation. The other con is that with this package you only get your bike for 4 hours. The website says its a day rental but it isn't. We had to pay an extra $14 since we returned the Bikes late. The staff member did give us a deal on the overage but i felt that the $59.99 per person cost should include more than just a few hours. We also never got our free water. When I asked for one, they told me the cost.
