    Brilliant Company
    Amazing company and team who made our cycle across The Golden Gate Bridge seamless! Located really close to the cycle path you pick up, clear instructions including a short video on how to reach The Bridge, maps provided, as well as Ferry Tickets already given to you to come back from Sausalito if you choose to do so (you will use these as the cycle is tiring!). You also pay for everything on your return, so you can be out on your bike as long as you’d like without rushing back due to time constraints on your rental and the ferry tickets just incase you don’t use them. We didn’t do a tour, we only hired the bikes but we saw people on tours whilst we were cycling and they looked alot of fun! Really friendly, helpful and knowledgable staff - highly recommend!

    Great!
    We had a great tour with Lucas and Tolya! We went with our 7yo on a tagalong and our 9yo wanted to ride by herself. We had originally planned for the 7yo to ride her own bike but she was uncomfortable once she tried out a bike. The team switched to a tagalong seamlessly. Everyone was really helpful. The tour was great! Both of the guides were interesting and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, I developed a migraine which effected my vision near Sausalito and I was going really slow. Tolya stayed back with me and my daughter and made sure we were safe. A couple of times my daughter got behind me on the road and I felt really safe knowing Tolya had his eyes on her. I am not used to biking in city traffic and was apprehensive the entire time but the guides were confident and I was comfortable following them. My daughter and I were really slow and falling behind and our guides were just so encouraging and patient. Everyone at Blazing Saddles was professional and we really enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommend this tour!

    Spectacular bike ride!
    Absolutely spectacular! All round great experience. Our guides Orla and Fiona were great. Going across the bridge is pretty intense and some of the ride where you share the road with cars is a little tricky, so I highly recommend the guided tour, I felt safe and in very good hands.

    Great tour!
    We really enjoyed our tour with Blazing Saddles. They were very professional and our tour guides were the best tour guides we've ever had. Fiona and Orla? Were awesome and really took great care of our group. And we loved their cute Irish accents. Would definitely do this tour again.

    Fantastic
    Not having riden an electric bike before, we were a little apprehensive, however this was soon baited when the crew showed and explained how the controls worked and ensured we were comfortable with them before leaving the office . We were lucky enough to be be guided by Orla who had charm and charisma and was very knowledgeable in explaining the history of San Francisco as we went around. She was also a very attentive photographer ensuring we had great pictures to capture the moment . Assistance was provided by Chloe, who kept the group together when stragglers(like us) stopped for the numerous photo opportunities. I would highly recommend this tour, you will not be disappointed.

    Amazing! Would go again!
    Had an amazing time biking in San Francisco! Our tour guide Mark was the best tour guide ever! You can tell he loves his job and is really good at it! He made the tour a lot better! Biking over the Golden Gate Bridge was amazing. If you can find parking other than the parking garages they charge 5 bucks every thirty minutes. We ended up paying 90 dollars for parking through our bike ride!!!

    Excellent experience!
    Fantastic experience! The staff was friendly and helpful from the minute we stepped foot in the door — the best service! The bikes we rented were in great shape. My kids and I rode for over 20 miles on them and saw so many sights in and around San Francisco. I would recommend Blazing Saddles without hesitation.

    Best Customer Service Anywhere
    The staff couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful when we rented (a tandem, going over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito), and for a very reasonable $25, not only were we able to drop the bike in Sausalito and walk around unencumbered and then take the ferry back, but we were able to call them and they sent someone to where we were to pick up the bike! The bike was good, too. Many bike-rental places are not so customer-friendly and these guys really stood out.

    Thanks Blazing Saddles
    My husband & I did the guided San Francisco to Sausalito over Golden Gate Bridge today & couldn’t recommend it highly enough. We opted for the e-bikes which was a good decision. Marcus was our guide & his professionalism, attention to safety, knowledge of the area, & presentation was fantastic. He was also easy to talk to & had an excellent manner with people. Thank you Marcus. Tolya acted as our ‘caboose’ & was just so helpful & considerate. I felt confident knowing he was at my back. He helped me with my bike, took some video & photos for me & was also very personable. Such a delightful young man. Thank you so much Tolya. Well done Blazing Saddles

    Great bike hire, and friendly tour guide!
    Great place for a bike ride - our guide was Eli, who was super-friendly and super-knowledgeable about the city, history, and sights. Totally recommended!! All on bike lanes with only a few hundred metres on non-busy roads (just be careful crossing tram lines!!) One of our party wanted to detour to see a statue of Yoda, and our guide Eli checked with the rest of the party, and we all fancied it too and so took us there, just so kind and nice!!! Super easy to ride across town and over the Golden Gate Bridge. We hired e-bikes, rather than regular bikes, which meant everyone in the family was comfortable - although it’s not so bad you especially need the power, but it is nice to be more free to enjoy the tremendous views! The tour ends in Sausalito - which is a superb little town, with great art shops and lovely food. You can take the ferry back to SF, or you can ride back - which is what we did, (and was a Greta choice as we saw many different things on the way back. On the way back we went to the “lookout” for a high-up view of the bridge and the city, which was really worth the climb - this climb was very steep, and without an e-bike you’d be out of your saddle and sweating as it is about a 25% gradient which just goes on and on!!! But the view from the top is just amazing, and well worth the climb - very windy up there, though! Really enjoyed this day out! We started at 10am and the tour finishes about 12 or 1pm, (I can’t remember exactly when we finished). The bikes don’t have to be handed back till 8pm so you can do what you like on the afternoon. With the e-bike, we had plenty of charge for all day, and handed out bikes back just after 7 pm, after what had been a great day!! The bikes come with a lock and a key, and a little bag on the front to hold the lock in (and you can put your boys and bobs in there too). All in all a great day!

    A Great Day Out
    Easy pick up and drop off of bicycles. Staff are friendly and efficient. We had a great day, leisurely cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge and down to Sausalito for lunch. We took the ferry back over San Francisco Bay with more amazing view of the Bridge, Alcatraz and the city skyline.

It was fun riding our bikes over the Golden Gate bridge. I would recommend visitors to San Francisco enjoy a similar experience. The stops along the way were interesting and the lunch was good . I think there were some problems with this trip which make me question whether or not I would recommend it to others. The group was way too large. It says in the description that the maximum number of people in the group is 15 but our group had 30. It was somewhat chaotic , and difficult to ride in such a large group. It was obvious they were having problems at Blazing Saddles and it wasn't clear who was in the group, who was leading the group,where we were going and who was going with us.
The other major problem for me was that the leader never explained how crowded the ferry gets and how early you have to lineup. We lined up 45 minutes early and we were shut out of the ferry because there were too many people and we had to stand in a crowded line for the next ferry or we would have missed that one as well. A heads up by the tour leaders would have been extremely helpful as they were the ones that sold us the ferry tickets..
Overall, it was a beautiful day, a memorable experience but the tour was definitely flawed.

Awesome must do experience while visiting SF! My husband and I and our 2 kids ages 10 and 13 rented their regular bikes and did the bike across the bridge tour to Sausalito and took the ferry back. Our guide, Jeremiah, was very knowledgeable and helpful. The kids said afterwards that this was the best part of our SF trip.

Rented bikes for 3 days in order to see SF on our terms. Chose Blazing Saddles for our bikes and what a great decision. The 15 speed bikes made the hills easier. Thanks for the memories!!

We did the Golden Gate Bike tour and it was a fun ride made even better by our tour guide Mark. He was a great guy, very personable and had great knowledge of his city. He made the ride so interesting by stopping and showing us various points of interest. He also was very gracious in offering to take whatever pix you wanted. Ask for Mark on your tour! Bikes were well maintained and in good shape. Finally, the ride is about 8 miles with a few modest hills so u should be in fairly good physical shape to do the ride.

Hey Bill, so glad you had a great tour with Mark! His knowledge of San Francisco is incredible and you can learn something different on every one of his tours. Next time try an e-bike - you'll fly up those modest hills.

This was much more than a cycle ride across the bridge. Local tour guide Mark crafted a great route full of stories and history. For Star Wars fans, it includes a visit to George Lucas’s offices and a peak at his personal collection of film props through the window (see pics). And on top of that there was the actual cross of the bridge.

Non-Americans, remember to take cash to tip the guide at the end of the tour in Sausalito, there’s no card option available and you’ll definitely want to tip him. I dropped cash into the office when I dropped my bike back but it’s not the same as tipping in person.

Amazing experience! Biking the bridge was wonderful and I'd recommend it to everyone going to SF. If you're not a strong rider, I do suggest upgrading to the e-bike, as there are a few steep hills on the way. I opted to ride back through the bridge on the way back and the guide graciously accompanied me after lunch at Joinery.
The tour makes a few stops along the way at beautiful places, such as the Palace of Fine Arts and Presidio park and you have enough time to take pictures while you hear about SF history. I was also super lucky, as we got to see THREE separate rainbows on the way

Alex, Wow, three rainbows! Glad you enjoyed your guided tour and you definitely get bonus points for riding back instead of taking the ferry. The electric bikes are a great upgrade and allow you to see so much for more on your ride. Thanks!

This was an amazing trip. CJ was a great tour guide with amazing energy and terrific stories about the places we were looking at. The biking was fairly strenuous at times but CJ patiently waited for us to walk our bikes at some spots along the journey. The views were amazing and the whole trip was a great experience.

Great bike ride! My husband, 17 year old son and myself took the guided tour across the Golden Gate Bridge yo Saulsalita. We chose the E bikes to help with the hills. Our guide Stephyn was incredible! His wealth of knowledge of San Francisco made the ride so much fun. He made sure we all ( there were 8 in our group) were happy and okay on the bikes at all times. I am so glad he was our guide!! If you are in San Fran. riding bikes across the bridge is amazing.

Just completed a fantastic tour with our guide Adam. He was a lovely guy and the tour was the highlight of our trip , especially for our 2 teenagers. The many stops on the tour made it an easy cycle across the bridge. Sausalito is a beautiful town for a lovely lunch along the water before taking the ferry back to San Francisco. It’s a day out not to be missed !
