“Great sightseeing option in SA away from river walk downtown”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

Bikes were comfortable but not not "cute". With road construction it was a little hard to find the shop. The shop is across the river from the King William district which is great for seeing beautiful homes-a section of the river and restos and shops. Did not have time time to explore this but will go back. The mission trail is ok. It runs along the river which is not that beautiful but it's not in traffic. The bike shop ran out of maps so we looked at the ones along the trail. Once you get to a mission stop- it's hard to find the actual mission since they are a couple of blocks away and the map/directions posted were not too good. Still, it was fun and I'll do it again (with my own map)

“Best day in San Antonio!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

The people at Blue Star were so helpful and especially made it fun for the kids! The prices were much better than the other shops we checked and we also liked the location better. The Blue Star Brewery is definately a bonus after the bike ride! Our bike ride along the Mission Trail was our best day in San Antonio!

Inexpensive rental. Decent, well maintained bikes. Friendly and helpful staff. Easy access to river walk. Really nice biking path with a lot of places to rest or explore.

“Great Bike Hire nearby”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

We didn't actually visit the brewery itself as we were looking to hire some bikes for a ride along the Riverwalk to visit some of the missions. We were recommended to use our 'hop-on / hop-off' ticket to go to the Blue Star Brewery stop and then head for the Blue Star Bike Shop.

The guys at the bike shop were great. They work out the right cycle for you, provide a helmet (if you want one), provide a lock, and will even provide a stretchy grip to hold stuff on the back of the bike. They also get you to do a spin around the car park to ensure that you are comfortable with the bike.

We enjoyed our trip and saw a great variety of wildlife. The Riverwalk is fairly flat and an extremely pleasant ride ... but don't forget the sun cream!

We paid $15 USD (plus tax) each for a half day hire and it was well worth it. Check the website though as they are not open every day.
