Owner description: 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.

Had a great day with Blazing Saddles biking across the Golden Gate Bridge. Was staying near Union Square so rented from the Mason Street location, about a block from Union Square.

Nice store with lots of choices of bikes. Rented the deluxe comfort mountain bike for the day, good bike with front suspension, disc brakes and pouch to put your belongings in. Good helmet, bike lock and area map was also included with the rental. Staff was friendly, the gentleman helping me explained the bike, told me how to get to the trails from their location and had a large map on the wall showing me the exact trails to take to get to the bridge and how to get to Sausalito to catch the ferry back. Overall a great experience and awesome pics!

Love the photos! The one of the Bridge is in our top 5 favorite customer photos now! I'm happy that our staff was so helpful and friendly to you. Hopefully next time you visit, you can come take that route to Golden Gate Park and see the more urban side of city. Glad you could come bike with us!
Thanks for sharing!

We ended up doing an electric bike as I could stand to be in better shape then I am, it was a lot of fun and a great way to explore the city! We missed the daily tour and didn't have any issue following along. The bike shop makes it fun and easy!

Glad to hear you could take advantage of our electric bikes since you missed our guided tour! (Makes those hills a little easier, doesn't it? :) ) If you are ever in SF, NYC, or Monterey, we would be more than happy to set you up with a bike for our guided tour across the Golden Gate Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge, or around Monterey Bay! They are certainly unique and fun ways to experience some our favorite rides. Hope to see you next time for another great ride!

An excellent selection of locations to hire from, good quality bikes and very reasonably priced.They go the extra mile by providing route cards and ride times, and a ferry ticket you can pay for if you use it.

We're happy to hear we were so accommodating to you. If you think our San Francisco staff was helpful, you should visit our locations in New York and Monterey to see how helpful our staff is there! Hopefully you can come visit us again this spring for another excellent ride across the Bridge!

This was a great way to experience a bit more of what San Francisco has to offer. Sam was our guide and he did an excellent job! He was always aware of the group and made sure that everyone enjoyed themselves on the tour and kept the group together well. He was knowledgable, entertaining and accommodating - a great person to have leading a tour. The pick-up and drop-off of the bikes was well organized and everyone in the shop was friendly and helpful. Blazing saddles is a really well run operation - great job!

Rode over the golden gate bridge today to Sausalito. Our tour guide Sam was great, very informative and even took us over to see the palace of fine arts. He was also very helpful when one of the members of the tour got a flat tyre. So many good spots to stop and take photos of the bridge. Directions are easy especially if you decide to go further on your own into Tiburon. Sausalito is a great little place for lunch and the guided tour includes the ferry ride back to the city. Would recommend this company to my friends and thanks to Sam for a great day :)

It's great to see so many customers taking advantage of our excellent guided tour with Sam! We'll be sure to pass on the kind words to him :) And we're happy that flat tire didn't stop your group from having an excellent day! I hope you were able to stop at Trident, our favorite restaurant in Sausalito, to try some of their delicious seafood. Thanks for biking with us!
