I had a great experience with Bay City Bike Rentals. I made the reservation online the day before and got a 20% discount. I booked a hybrid bike, the Escape model which turned out to be great and a lot easier to ride when going uphills than the cheaper alternative that the friend i was with got for herself.

Make reservations on-line. They get your bikes ready and you don't have to wait. They were great to work with.

The 19th of July was our anniversary and we had a fabulous time cycling over the Golden Gate and into Sausilito. The ferry ride back to pier 1 was also great. Many thanks to the staff who looked after us and gave us such comfortable bikes. Thank you

We chose Bay City bike rentals and did the tour that takes you over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito. Picture 20-25 bikers with a lone tour guide at the front leading the way. You'd think they might throw in a bottle of water for the trip, but they don't. Be prepared for considerable uphill as well. The Bridge is... More

We highly recommend renting bikes and riding around San Francisco! There is no better way to see San Francisco then riding around on a bike! We went across the bridge and down into small towns on the other side and took the ferry back across. It was a great time! Our kids were ages 12 and 10 when we did... More

Our family of 4 rented bikes from here - the process was easy and staff were all very friendly. They gave clear instructions of how we cold go from Fisherman's Wharf over Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito. It was a great way to see the city and have fun as a family. Bike return was also easy. Thank you

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.
