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.

Decided to go with this company as they were located in several accessible locations all around the harbour. We went to the Pier 39 stand. Simple to understand & clear instructions. Bikes robust & well maintained. We decided to do the longer ride passing through Sausalito around the tip of the bay catching the return ferry from Tiburon (22 miles).... More

When in San Francisco it's almost a right of passage to bike the bridge. The Blazing Saddles staff are extremely enthusiastic, friendly and seem to genuinely care that you have a good time. The day we choose was quite windy so we had a headwind most of the way, if the cost of electric bikes were cheaper this would definitely... More

Great family ride on the Golden Gate, expect a lot of people, so come early at the shop. Staff is really friendly and helpful! Bridge is crowded but it is really worth to do! As you rent, you receive tickets to come back with a ferry and I really recommend it! great half day activity! when the sun is out... More

We rented bikes at blazing saddles for their tour to bike across the Golden Gate bridge. Good things they do - give you both a map and written instructions, give you options of different places to go (Sausalito, Mill Valley, Tiburon), give you ferry tickets so that you can come back from Sausalito or Tiburon without having to buy tickets...

Initially we booked for 2 days bikes and electric bikes. Unfortunately the two electric bikes didn't function properly all the time. This was a big disappointment and ruined our trip. Of course we didn't want to go for another day and cancelled the second day. They acknowledged the malfunction and we got a discount for the first day and cancelled... More

This will be a very fond memory (myself and my 17 year old daughter). Simply put, do this! You won't regret it and you won't forget it.

My family and I hired bikes from the Fisherman's wharf store while on our trip several days ago. In an event which was close to running our trip, this company went above and beyond to fix the situation and provide the best experience with their brilliant customer service. I can't rave enough how much their attitude and attention to the... More

We rented bikes from Blazing Saddles to ride over the GG Bridge and into Sausalito. This is a definite must-do if you're in San Francisco. You don't need to make a reservation in advance. They have tons of bikes. Their office was a 1/2 block from our hotel in Fisherman's Wharf. If you're staying in the area, you can walk... More

We peddled over the Golden gate to Sausalito , had lunch and then peddled back over! So much fun, great views and just right exercise! We are average cyclists and it... More

They don't give you any clarity on the pricing before you leave but will charge you for a WHOLE day if you are longer than 4 hours. They recommended the ferry and even give you tickets... But if you use them you are charged, again, we weren't told this and had assumed it was included in the cost. It's in... More
