Bike the Bridge! At Blazing Saddles Bike Rental and Tours we want our guests to come away from a day on our bikes feeling as if they have just experienced the very best that our city has to offer. Whether it is a local resident enjoying our state of the art equipment or a visitor seeing the city for the first time, we encourage our riders to enjoy the bike friendly environment of San Francisco. Blazing Saddles was one of the first in the industry to develop a proprietary map of suggested routes and points of interest, and we have been a major pioneer in promoting cycling through the Presidio National Park, over the Golden Gate Bridge and into Sausalito and Tiburon. All of our seven locations in San Francisco have easy access to a car-free bike path that winds around the city by the bay. We have the largest fleet of bikes in San Francisco, including state of the art electric bikes, tandems and kids' bikes. We also have high performance road and mountain bikes for those who want to explore Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Mt. Tamalpais State Park. We rent bikes 365 days a year and are open at 8am every day. For those that want something more, we offer a daily tour with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. No reservations necessary.

We hired bikes from Blazing Saddles at Fisherman's wharf, cycled across the Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito (2 hours with stops), and then took the ferry back to Fisherman's wharf. I think this is by far the best way to see the Golden Gate Bridge, and a great ride for the family. This is my second bike tour of the... More

From the moment of booking online, Blazing Saddles service was efficient, effective and just in time smooth! Arriving to the Hyde Street branch (easy to find in the downloadable app), this level of service was exceeded and made totally personal yet completely "well-oiled-machine-like" which was extremely comforting for a first time user of their service. Little touches like the Welcome... More

During our flight out West, we sat next to a "local" who suggested that we bike the golden gate bridge to Sausalito, eat there, and then head back on the ferry. He suggested "blazing Saddles". Honestly, that's the only reason we chose them. There seem to be 500 different bike places there and it's not really clear what sets any... More

Blazing Saddles is well run, by Andrew, with good quality bikes and good value for money. There is plenty of competition out there and he deserves to be high on the Trip Advisor ratings. You need look no further for hire bikes in San Francisco, certainly in the Fisherman's Wharf area.

We have visited SF a few times now. One time we walked over the bridge and back, on this trip we had driven across it and so the only thing left was to ride across it. We picked up our bikes at Pier 41. We just walked up and they had plenty. The check in process was very quick and... More

Watched a safety video and got a helmet and seated on a bike - did feel a little conveyor belt like but guess it was busy. The route was easy and pre getting the ferry tickets made it alot easier.

Had a nice day out with the bridge guided tour. Do be aware there are 3 fairly testing hills, the guides say they are small, but if you have any injuries you will struggle. Other than that, good experience

We hired 2 electric bikes to bike the bridge and explore Sausalito. They were great! We powered up those hills without any effort and instead of getting the ferry back we still had plenty of battery and energy to bike back! This company were great - a well oiled operation and was close to our hotel too. The bridge is... More
