Been recommended this place to rent a bike in San Fran to ride the Golden Gate bridge. Get an electric bike! it makes it so much easier Best thing about this company to hire is...that you basically pay $65 to rent a bike, you can get $65 to spend at their warehouse. IT'S SUCH A GOOD DEAL! it's a sports warehouse, you can buy anything from shirts, to shoes to bikes. I highly recommend and try to pedal up to Battery spencer

this company delivers as promised. We rented and paid for 2 excellent bikes and saw SF up close and personal-----had a great time. The kickers was when we went to their parent store - showed our receipt- and left with $130.00 of TOTALLY FREE MERCHANDISE. You can't beat free for a great price!!!!!!

From the start, I just wanted to hire an e-bike to cross the golden gate bridge. I searched the internet, and I found Basically Free Bike Rental. When I went there, they told me that I could use the receipt to buy sports gear in their shop. I stooped at their shop on my way back and bought some socks (you always need more socks:.-)). The e-bike looked new, but I had some issues with the gears, but overall it was a good experience. I recommend them to everyone.
