Bike and Roll is the nation's premier bicycle rentals and tours company with locations in San Francisco, New York, Wasington, DC, Chicago, and Miami. Bike and Roll San Francisco offers you some of the most beautiful bike rides in the world. Imagine leaving Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, riding a bike path along the San Francisco Bay, through the Presidio and Golden Gate National Recreation Area, over the Golden Gate Bridge, and into Sausalito where one can board a ferry for a boat cruise back across the bay. Thousands of visitors make this journey on a daily basis throughout the peak visitor season as the Bay Trail bicycle ride has emerged as a must do visitor event in the city by the bay. For the more adventurous, San Francisco sits just below the Marin Headlands where the origins of mountain biking can be found. In addition to its line of comfort bikes for leisure riding, Bike and Roll offers a full line of high-end bikes for the more experienced or more adventurous rider.

I was looking to get a nice, scenic bike ride in and found these guys outside the Hyatt Regency in the financial district, but they have various locations. It was around 4pm and I thought it was too late to rent a bike but they mentioned there was a drop off location on Hyde until 9pm which was very convenient!... More

Was a really awesome experience, it was my first time in SF and didn't know where to begin. I did the whole bike tour! Started at the Pier Building, Golden Gate, Redwoods and cycled through a couple of small american towns and took the ferry from Tiburon back to SF all for $32. Best value for money!

We rented two bikes from the Columbus Ave location, for one day. They asked us to leave a credit card for a deposit of $100 each. I did so, thinking this was a reputable place. We returned the bike that evening, but they still charged us the $200, without telling me, without calling my cell phone number that I left... More

We picked up bikes at their location near Pier 43 1/2. It was simple and quick. The bikes were in decent shape for rentals and the bike bags were good sized. We received good directions and tips on how to travel across the bridge and into Sausalito. One caution: There is a lot of traffic (high speed road bikes and... More

We booked these bikes on impulse at Fishermans Wharf to cycle down to the GGB which is further way from the City than you think. It must be 4 miles each way to Fort Point which was fine for us, the route is not too challenging and the bikes were good. The guy on the bike stand gave us clear... More

Was in SF for a concert the night before and decided to take a couple bikes for a ride. Great views and fun experience biking thru San Francisco. Did not give it a 5 because the seats could have been more comfortable. Also be aware that you have to pay for the ferry ride back after riding thru the Golden... More

We hired the bikes from the Leavenworth kiosk, and the chap there was so helpful. We cycled across the bridge, into sausalito then onto mill valley, back to tiburon and ferry back to San Francisco, it's amazing what you see, and if you take it easy the cycling is fairly easy (tho my muscles did disagree at some points)

Hired bikes from the Leavenworth Street kiosk. Sara was very helpful, ensured the bikes were an appropriate fit, provided map and guidance re points of interest and best spots for photos. We rode across “The Big Orange Bridge” (check out International Orange), down Alexander Ave (you do share the road but the shoulder is wide and not really an issue)... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
