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.

Firstly I see that there have been a few negative reviews, all I can do is give an accurate review of our experience which was first class. We are staying at the Argonaut, which by the way offers a few free passes for bike hire at Blazing Saddles each day, so it was the perfect place for us to hire... More

We hired two bikes with the intention of riding over the bridge and then exploring the surrounding city. Once we hit the bridge it became apparent there was an issue with my riding partners bike. The gears constantly slipped and if she tried to change the gears, well all hell broke loose. We made do managed to get across the... More

Overall it was a great experience...the weather was beautiful and visibility was amazing. I started the tour in Fishermans Wharf and biked over the bridge to Sausalito, and took the ferry back to SF. It was a great way to see the sites. **Be warned though...This is not an easy, casual ride as they advertise....this is a work-out, and its... More

First off I'm no cyclist, must be 30yrs since I was on a bike. We wanted to cycle over the Golden Gate Bridge, and my wife had not been on a bike for 40yrs. The people at Blazing Saddles were so helpful, we tried the bikes of first, watched a video, they gave us lots of tips, maps etc. The... More

We spent the long week end across SFO with my family and wanted to discover the city at our pace. We rented bicycles at blazing saddles and we found this as a very good experience. The team was very professional (great people with good advices), bikes were in good shape (marin highway 51). We really recommend this place. We rode... More

They inform you of the best bike route to follow that leads you across the bridge, through Sausalito, and back. Prices were really good, and if you reserve online, you get 20% off.

Bikes were in great condition, came with a key and lock too. They give you tickets for the ferry back if you venture too far for ~$11 each if you use it. If you're fit enough I recommend going from the pier, across the bridge to Sausalito. Tiburon is too far but does offer good views if you're able. They... More

Took our 2 children, ages 7 and 10, on this tour. Bikes were fine and helmets included. Some of the trail was pretty steep. Most of the time we were on a bike/walk path. The views are amazing! We stopped at the Warming Hut for hot chocolates. The ride across the bridge was quite busy, but the downhill ride into... More

Two thumbs up, or should I say six thumbs up from "team Delaware"!!! Great experience with the bike rental here in SAN Francisco! Professional stuff, good equipment, route info including return ferry tickets from Sausalito if inclined to return that way. Highly recommend the bike rental place on Hyde street! Thank you!

I am an avid cyclist and said more not nice words in the 4-5 hours I had the bike than I have said 10 years past. The back derailleur didn't work so shifting gears was impossible and not something I realized until I started up the hill to Golden Gate Bridge. Plans for an entire day of cycling were cut... More
