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.

We did the guided golden gate bike tour with Devin. It was a tonne of fun. Great way to see the city and he was extremely knowledgeable and fun. He kept up and kept us entertained through all our group's questions -- from politics to history to popular culture to wildlife. What a fantastic way to not only take in... More

I wanted to use an electric bike, but the one advertised had been discontinued. We did bring this up with the manager who said we could have a different model at a reduced rate. However they wanted 1,500.00 hold on my credit card which was not possible, so I had to use a normal bike. They said the slopes were... More

Prior to our San Francisco trip, I did a lot of research on day activities. It seems that bike riding across the bridge is very popular as well as renting bikes from Blazing Saddles. We rented bikes from the location in Fisherman's Wharf. Bike riding across the bridge to Sausalito was one of the highlights on our trip! The staff... More

In San Fran for a business trip and had a morning to spare and being in Fishermans Wharf a colleague and I decided to give it a try. Being regular cyclists we went for sports bikes and had a pair of Specialized Roubaix road bikes. They were sized quickly for myself and my friend who has the body shape like... More

They have a lot of stores in different locations around San Francisco. Super friendly staff, available to answer our questions and even make suggestions. They show you a small video with some tips as well (the route you should follow, the best places to go...); they give you ferry tickets so you don't have to be in the line, and... More

Not to be missed if you are fit to cycle and walk up fairly steep hills. Ride from bay through city to golden gate park to the breakers and the over the bridge to Sausalito and back on the ferry.

Hired a bike to cycle the Golden Gate Bridge. Aoife and Markus were friendly and help getting everything set up and ready to go including directions to the bridge and no hassle when I returned the bike. Cycling the bridge is a great experience and their bikes were more than up to the task.

We rented 2 bikes; one single bike, one tandem for about 5 hours, which cost us roughly $40 per person. They give you a ferry ticket, so you have the opportunity to bike from Fisherman's Wharf (or whichever starting point) all the way across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito where you can take the ferry back. If you take... More

Unfortunately this tour was not what we hoped for. For a "bike" tour it was mostly walking with a lot of stops. Too many people were accepted in the tour which meant a lot of waiting around. Tour guide did not keep an eye on the participants who were riding all over the road and blocking cars, making it unsafe... More
