“Slightly disorganised on 4th July but bikes were fine”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I had made an online booking and received a discount. We picked up the bikes at 9 am and the pick up did not appear to be very organised however we got our 3 bikes and a map. Two of the bikes had bags at the back for our stuff. We wanted to cycle the 8 miles ove the Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito and - although the signs are not very clear up to the Golden Gate Bridge - we managed the cycle and then got the ferry back from Sausalito to Fisherman's Wharf. What an experience. My only criticism is that all the Blazing Saddles bikes had bags at the back and had space for a map at the front and seemed slightly more organised but our biked worked out fine.

“Great Place to Rent Bikes”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We were considering doing a guided bike tour over the Golden Gate Bridge and are so glad we didn't. We chose instead to rent bikes from this shop and do the ride ourselves. The guys at this shop are so friendly and will give you all of the information you need to know about riding over the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito. The bikes were in fantastic shape and it was evident that they take care of their bikes. We reserved our bikes online and got a discount. We were very pleased with the amount we paid for a daily rental.

If you are wanting to do this ride, I highly recommend doing it on your own and using this shop for the rental. The bike tour groups we saw were very large and moved at a very slow pace. We were able to go at a leisurely pace and tried to avoid the big groups that made frequent stops.

“Fun time had by all”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We rented three bikes from San Francisco Bicycle Rentals over 4th of July weekend. I found them online and they offered 20% off. We got to the shop which was conveniently located on the outer edge of Fisherman's Wharf. The shop was crazy busy and you could tell they were trying to go as fast as possible. They reviewed the map on where to go. I would have preferred turn by turn directions to Saulsalito as there was about 50 cyclists at one point trying to figure out where to go. $24 for an all day bike rental. Cool experience riding over the Golden Gate Bridge. Tons of photo ops along the way.

“Great little bike rental”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Very friendly and helpful staff who even shared their chocolate! Located just before the bike trail begins. It has been many years since I was on a bike that moved so we rode up to the bridge and half way along before cycling back down. The headwinds on the way make for hard work and there are really no place en route to stop and purchase anything so perhaps be more prepared than we were and bring water at least. The views were stunning.

“Great experience.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

In San Francisco for a convention and with a free afternoon, and rented a bike from these guys. They were great. They'll give you whatever help you need. Bikes in good shape, quick and easy rental process, friendly and a good value (reserve online for a bit of a discount). This was a fun way to see the area, while getting some exercise. I hope to be a repeat customer!
